This is the post in which I am ridiculously spoiled. Apologies in advance....
The week before Christmas a package arrived in the mail. Well, angels started singing and me and my big ol' belly practically floated off the ground because inside was... Folk Song! This is a reprint collection by Anna Maria Horner, featuring 4 of her Good Folks returned in the flesh and much of Little Folks now on quilting cotton. Aaaaaah!
I begged Free Spirit Fabrics to send me some early for some special baby makes. The collection and this baby are both due in February (ok, baby technically due March 6th, but I say February), so it was now or never, you know? The nursery waits for no one. Oh my lucky stars, they obliged! Hurrah and hurray.
I got right to work. First up, another changing pad cover. Construction same as the firsts. See the updated tutorial at The Cozy Pumpkin.
This room is supposed to be all the pretty colors, so blue is definitely a go. Maybe chill navy blue will keep baby calm when being changed? No? That's crazy? Well, this particular fabric was one of my favorite Little Folks so I'm glad to see it here. Diamond Mine is great in the red colorway too!
Stowed away in the bottom dresser drawer are all our baby bedding linens, including a couple new Folk Song sheets!
A pretty pink sheet in Coloring Garden makes a nice impact.
This mix of pink, jade, yellow and coral would be a great starting point for quilt colors, don't you think? Notice that bit of dusty blue and orchid purple too. Anna Maria has such a way with color!
I made another crib sheet (tutorial here) in Little Honey flowers. Isn't it cute popping out from the side of the crib?
I really like how this print jives with the alphabet panel.
And the bold red is a good addition to the room, especially against that grass green rug.
This room is really starting to feel like vanilla with rainbow sprinkles. I love it! According to my Baby Makes master list, I only have one more nursery make and then it's on to baby clothes and accessories, including a floor quilt for tummy time.
I can do it! I can do it!
p.s. Visit Fabricworm or Fat Quarter Shop to register interest in Folk Song. They will notify you when the collection is in stock, so you can order yours. Yippee!
