This is the second completed piece, of 3, that I am making for my sister, brother-in-law, and their soon-to-be first born.  I am making the trip to go see them at the end of this month, so I have been working on this set every chance I get.

If you'd like to read the background and see the first piece of the set, go here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344129.msg4001846#msg4001846, where I've posted the quilt/blanket.  

Here's the first picture, for this project's thumbnail:

The crib skirt is my own pattern, though I modeled the desired finished product after the the set my sister chose (http://www.babybedding.com/western-pony-crib-bedding).  The crib they are using for their baby is the same one that our parents used for us.  My sister re-painted it and gave it it's second wind.  This crib is unique because of the way it fits together.

As shown in the above picture, there is a wire-like piece that protrudes from the mattress base (the piece the mattress sits on), about 2 inches from the end.  This is why there is a break in the crib skirt about 2 inches from each corner.  My sister didn't want it to be velcro-d closed or anything, so I just left it as-is.  Here is a picture of the detail on the corner, both the pleat and the opening left for the mattress base support (the wire-like thing).

And here's a few more pictures:

Please excuse the wrinkles and stray threads.  I was so excited to show it off that I didn't wash it or iron it.  Oh, and it's currently draped over my sewing machine table, which is too tall, too short (left-to-right) and too narrow (front-to-back).

I will add pictures of the crib set on the crib after I've given it to them at the end of this month (I'm so excited!!!).
