I posted some of this in the quilting thread, but wanted to share here as well. I made a quilt, bumpers, crib skirt and memo board with a collection of out of print fabrics called "Polly Goes To Paris" by Henry Glass. I just kind of winged it for everything, and the crib skirt and bumpers were easy; just rectangles. The quilt was hard because it's cotton, minky dot, and vintage chenille squares, all of which have varying amounts of stretch. The back of the quilt is minky dot as well. If anyone is looking to do something similar, I can post some tutorials I found helpful, it would just be way too much to post all at once here. Looking for some feedback, as this was a lot of work!

If you want to see close ups of the fabrics, you can google "Polly Goes To Paris" and see some better photos!

Wow! You did a great job. It absolutley looks store-bought (but better because I haven't seen something like that in a store!). Congratulations on your little girl, too. Smiley

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.
