Show Me My Options

The real finish of the week was making decisions. I’m exciting to be doing the nursery for our next little granddaughter, due August 24! Her mother found a picture of the fabric she wanted, I then did the research and found the line. It is a Premier Fabric line in Wisteria and Storm. I found them at and Kona orchid and Riley Blake dots in gray were the perfect go withs. The big decision was which fabric to put where.

Confirmation that I am just a simple girl from Missouri, you’ve got to show me my options, before I can decide. I did a mockup of crib bumpers, inside and out, orchid standing in as the sheet, showing the thickness of the mattress on the front view, and the dust ruffle.

We independently decided on option 3. Yippee!

While I was putting off figuring all this out, I created the duvet cover for the twin bed, that will also be in the nursery. This, because I knew what the plan was, was easy to knock off the list.

Finished! This is actually the backside of it and I really like it! I used a Riley Blake gray dots on white fabric and added white , to add the panels, to give me the width I needed for a twin. And since I don’t have a twin bed, it was hard to photograph, but you get the idea. I bound 5/8″ cording, around the outer edges, in Kona orchid. Storm gray duvet cover Linking up with:

    I like the back as well, and for some reason the back seems to always look prettier than one would think. I think because it is also made carefully in a special way for its special use. Be Blessed, Mtetar

  8. What a beautiful colour palette to work with! That’s one very lucky little girl. I think I might borrow the arrangement from Option 4 as I love those vertical dots! 🙂

    Too many choices for the nursery — that would be so hard to figure out. But, I think you picked a great combination!
