I decided to make my own crib set for my baby girl on the way, using fabrics from the "Polly Goes To Paris" collection by Henry Glass. It was out of print when I got my heart set on it, and it took me about 4 months, countless hours, and tons of contacts to track down all the prints. The main fabric was so hard to find, it would take me a whole page just to tell the story, but I got it!

Anyways, I made the quilt using squares of the Polly cotton, minky dot squares, and vintage chenille squares (bought from this etsy seller: http://www.etsy.com/shop/teelady). The back is a darker pink minky dot fabric (sorry, forgot a pic) and I just used store bought black binding. It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard to sew three different types of fabric together, but I made it work with a lot of pinning and patience, and it turned out pretty nice.

I also made bumpers and a crib skirt and a memo board, which I pictured. I busted all of it out in about 2 days, so I'm tired but relieved! Now I can relax and wait for the baby to come.

Oh my goodness, this is adorable!  I love the fabric you chose.  I made a nursery set for my daughter who is now 6 months old, I too was relieved when it was done!  I did curtains, bumpers, crib skirt, and a cushion for the rocking chair.

Congratulations on the great work, and the baby!

This is absolutely adorable, and inspired me to make a quilt and bumper for my 10 week old's 'big boy's' cot, which he'll be going into when he grows out of his swinging crib in a few weeks. I was just wondering how you designed the bumper? Any help much appreciated, as a novice I'm completely baffled by the idea of a bumper!
