Then, at this point the two layers move independently of eachother which can be annoying, so you can tie it with yarn in places on the fabricthat repeat (on mine, it was the center of every yellow flower)
Ooh! That's an interesting idea. Plus, I like the idea of fleece on one side and a cotton or something on the other. She's in central CA, so it doesn't get super duper cold, and I think she's due late summer?
How much fabric? I saw this really cute idea (I'll see if I can find it and post the link) where you get 3 yds. of fabric and then you do one fabric in the middle; 4 sq. of the second fabric on the corners, and strips of the 3rd on the sides. If that makes ANY sense. You get three quilts out of this. Here's the link
So, for those quilts you essentially need a yd of fabric per quilt. Do you think it would be the same for yours?
Your idea would probably be easier, huh?

They are 100% free!!
I got fabric today for the pillow (it's blue with stars, because I'm going to put it in ds' room and he has a stars nursery theme....light blue walls with sponged stars as the border). I have washed it and need to press it. I also need to draw out the pattern. I'm scared and excited, which is so silly!
I will definitely post pics of anything I make! You betcha!!
