We painted an accent wall in E's room in our new apartment a beautiful, peaceful light aqua. Her old elephant green crib bedding, in combination with the blue walls and nature theme we have going on, suddenly felt to 'boy'. I am all for defying gender stereotypes, but I wanted a touch more girly for her bed.
I went with a red and pink butterfly print by Michael Miller for the crib skirt, and I really love how it turned out! I only sewed three sides to save on fabric, and am thinking of making her a big girl pillow with the leftover fabric.

I used about 20 different fabrics, and I really love how crazy it looks! I used the scraps from cutting the squares to make a fun binding, and quilted with the tying method (since my machine doesn't do free motion quilting) - it reminds me of blankets by my grandmother, and DD likes them too!
