For a dear friend.  Her little boy is due at the end of Jan.   I am making a quilt, window treatment, bumpers (which arent being very nice right now) and the dust ruffle.
I just finished the dust ruffle.
The theme is vintage airplanes, and a bit of americana type colors.
I am honestly stunned how well the "ruffle" came out.
My ironing board is my baby bed... My son just got moved up to a "big boy" bed... sniffle.
I will be adding more to this as the days roll by Smiley

I just finished the bumper... man that was a pain...all in all I am very pleased with it.
I VERY haphazardly threw my sons old crib back together... so dont think ive got a baby sleeping out in the garage. Smiley
I should also add that the crib that the bumpers are going on is a bit bigger than the one i have so it looks a little floppy.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

I love the theme too.  We were actually looking for "realistic" cloud fabric, but were completly unsuccessful.  We found one that we REALLY liked from walmart online.  I found a walmart that actually still has fabric down here, which is a task.  They are cutting it out of almost all the stores down here in Houston.  I went, and the lady told me that the specific one was sold out!  It was gonna take at least 2 weeks to get it in, which I dont have.  I found the airplane fabric, and fell in love. 
My friend has a whole bunch of vintage-y looking plane prints that are going up on the walls too.
I think when i have another baby, im gonna ask to borrow the stuff back from her for the room.  Im in denial that I will have a girl Smiley

Im in process with the bumpers... which is proving to be a PIMA!  I hate cutting batting!

They came out so professional looking.  They look great. I love the way you did the bumpers. (Just tried some myself and failed miserably).  Maybe they were a lot of trouble but sure worth it.  They are great!!
