Those fabrics are beautiful!  I think a quilt using those fabrics would be something you could use even when you got older, like an heirloom piece.

Yeah, I think that totally will work. I think what I was trying to get at was that I thought the bigger floral print should be used in larger pieces because otherwise it might look odd. It looks like it will make a stunning quilt.

I'd pick those fabrics for a baby girl...in fact those fabrics are very similar to the quilt that I had in my little girl's crib at first before we got her a matching crib/room decor set.

Bravo...can't wait to see the quilt!!!

I love that you are using non-babyish prints!  I also love that you are using red instead of pink and pastels.  Personally I'm not really crazy about the big rose patterned fabric but I think it's going to look great just the same.

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

I think it will look great.  It is amazing how easy it is to scrutinize a particular fabric but when they're all together they look great.  How do you plan to quilt it and what are you using as the backing fabric?

I love love the colours! It's got a lovely classy country style feel...what are you using the stripes for? I think it'd look great as the edging (I have only half made one quit before...so I don't know if 'edging' is the right term...you know what I mean though, don't you?)

I'm glad you are using that large floral print in big pieces too, because you mentioned that the crib is red (I think) and it would be a bit of an overload of red without some large pieces with more cream/white than red...did that make sense?...maybe using the polka dot as the backing would be a bit too much?

All that said, I love the idea of this quilt and I love your kindness in doing this for your friend!

Thanks, I like using the stripes as the edging/border as well!  Great idea!  I am using the polka dot as the backing.  The bumper is red, but the crib itself is a natural wood.

Gingerquilts, in response to your other question...how do I plan to quilt it?  I guess since I am a newbie, I dont' really understand the question!  I am doing it all by machine, if that is what you mean.  I thought about tieing it through with embroidery thread, but figured an infant would pull and chew on them (since that's what my infant does to EVERYthing in sight!).  If you have an easy way for me, I would love to hear it!  Smiley

Glad to be of some sorta help! And since the actual crib is natural wood...it sounds like it will be awesome! Cheesy I'd love to see a photo or two of the finished quilt! I love red...my parents wouldn't let me paint my room red as a  kid because they thought it would make me angry....heheh...
