This quilt was a long time in the coming. I tore a pattern for an embroidered crib bumper out of Marie Claire Idees magazine years before we had babies. When I was expecting our oldest, Colleen started embroidering. When Noodle arrived the bumper was half done (a bumper is really really long!) and it was stuck in a cabinet. I had been trying to figure out what to do with it since.
Turns out that bumper really wanted to be part of a quilt! The Little Miss' floor quilt was made of all items I had on hand. The twelve large squares are cut from old curtains and extra bumper fabric. A fleece blanket is sandwiched between the topper and a backing. And the bumper embroidery makes an extra special edging.
