These were the fabrics she choose. I love the grays and yellows.
I saw a quilt that was basically a "crazy" Log Cabin, made from very soft pastels, it was beautiful and looked very easy to make. I started with a center that was not square and went from there. I will most likely do it differently, as I had some strips that were slivers when I put the blocks together.
For the bumper pads I purchased a package of foam pads from JoAnn Fabrics, what a great invention!!
check them out here.
I used ribbon for the ties, two colors the yellow and the gray.
Sewing the two sides together and then inserting the foam went smoothly, the tricky part is sewing the opening shut. I wanted to sew the opening on the machine rather than by hand, for a stronger seam. Pushing down the foam and pinning it out of the way you can then sew the seam together.
The foam pops back out and fills the space very nicely.
Cora's Nursery is all put together, Rachel has done a great job with the room. More pictures next post.
