Isn't it yummy. I have some more fabrics that should coordinate, like the pillow cases I made last week.
Here is the Delilah fabric next to the crib sheet that I want to fussy cut and use as focal squares. There is just a bit of blue in the sheets which gets pulled out nicely.
When I bought Baby Girl's crib bedding, I bought the matching full sized sheets too, so she'd have them for her future big girl bed. I love toile and I particularly love a chinoiserie toile. I lusted over this bedding in the Pottery Barn Kids catalogue for a year before I got pregnant and found out I was having a girl. There was NO WAY I was going to let it get away from me.
As you can see the fabric has a fairly large repeat. The pink toile scene is from another crib sheet, which is available for use in this quilt. I think I'm looking at at least an eight inch square to fussy cut the scenes. I won't have that many focal squares and I just can't decide what sort of pattern to use.
I have the pattern for this quilt, Spring Thyme by Nancy Mahoney, and keep coming back to it as a starting point.
I still go back to the idea of a sampler quilt. I'm stuck. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Send me some links.
