Flannel is a soft woven fabric with a napped surface. This is a lightweight backing option. Blankets with flannel backing are perfect for the summer months or if you live in a warm climate. Flannel backings come only in the original throw size blanket.
(DOT AND CUDDLE)
Minky is a plush microfiber knitted fabric with a smooth, velvety texture similar to velour. This backing is thicker than the flannel. Minky dot (pictured) has dimples across the length fabric, and minky cuddle is flat. Minky backed blankets are an in-between blanket option – good for fall, warm winter climates, or warm-blooded people who don’t want to be too bogged down by a heavy blanket.
Faux fur is a high pile polyester fabric. It is plush and has a soft hand. I use two types of faux fur: minky fur which is velvety and soft, and sherpa fur, which is warmer, thicker, and less silky feeling. Fur backed blankets are great for winter and cold weather.
Velvet is a woven fabric with a short, dense pile and a soft, smooth feel. This backing makes for a luxurious blanket with a beautiful drape. It is not as warm as fur, but equal in weight to the minky backings.
GENERAL BLANKET INFO
The front of my book blankets are adorned with my uniquely designed illustrations that have been digitally printed onto fabric. The backs of these blankets are your choice of flannel, minky dot, or faux fur. I sew the two pieces of fabric together with my sewing machine. It is not a quilt, so there is no inner batting layer or stitching over the top. The blankets are top-stitched around the edges to create a finished look. The baby and original throw sizes have a cotton top. The oversized throw blanket has a minky top. The color/pattern of the back fabric (flannel, minky, or faux fur) will vary based on what I have in stock. If you have a specific request for backing fabric, or have any questions about the fabric in general, please message me before ordering. I may be able to accommodate requests but it largely depends on what my fabric supplier has in stock at the time of your order.
Please note: My artwork is hand-painted and has never been digitially altered in any way – so you might see crooked lines or random specks of color. The colors may also look different on your computer screen than they look in person.
Quilt blankets comes in three sizes:
Baby – 40″ by 34″, the perfect size for swaddling a baby or giving to a toddler.
Original Throw – 40″ by 60″, the perfect size to throw over your couch or reading chair. Also great for traveling.
Oversized Throw – 54″ by 70″, the perfect size for sharing.
**For size reference: This blanket can lay flat on a queen size bed with none of the blanket edges going off the bed. It is NOT bed spread size, it is simply a large throw blanket.
***Measurements are approximate and can vary based on patterning.
