MadeIt calls itself "the handmade market that is open all day every day". The press page gives more information. There is a discrete "quilt" category, but others are listed under "Babies and Children" as "bedding".
There's even a blog, with some great ideas and instructions.
A bit like an Etsy shop or a SEWnSELL shop, but a little more like a an online market stall, with ready access to everyone else's stalls ...... just what you need!
