Lorenzo’s Corner

Can’t wait for my sweet little guy to get here. Of course, I’ve got Olive and my neverending project list to keep me busy, so I’m sure he’ll be here in no time. 

For now, Lorenzo’s crib is living in our room. Not ideal, but I just know he will NEVER sleep if he shares a room with his spirited sister. That won’t stop me from decorating! 

I’ve already whipped up a batch of my crib bumpers with piping.  I love how they turned out! If you haven’t seen my free tutorial, you can check it out here.

I used an aqua houndstooth print (“Vintage Modern” by Bonnie & Camille for Moda), the coordinating aqua polka dot for the piping, and simple white ties.   

I love a good, crisp bow!  


Now I just need a quilt to match.  Oh wait! Remember when I made one of Camille’s Hopscotch quilts?  Well it matches. (And I was sooo hoping for a good excuse to hold onto it!) It even has fleece on the back.  Perfect!


So there it lives. I even found a pillow in storage that goes with it.

To be honest, I will still probably make another quilt for Lorenzo.  (One just doesn’t seem to be enough to quell my quilting appetite).  Plus, I’m lusting after some lovely gray and red fabrics at the moment. So there you have it.

    I love the bumpers – super cute! Brock parked it in our room for about a year before I had the courage to put him in a room with Adam. Now they love being in there together and are used to each others' noises. I'm sure Olive will love Lorenzo – even to death. 🙂

    Love it all! Isn't that houndstooth just great? My daughter slept in our room for 6 months, until we finally put her in her own room to hopefully get her to sleep through the night- there is no way she'd sleep with her sisters either! I had to give up my sewing room, but the sleep has been *almost* worth it 😉

    Super Cute. I am making a piping project as we speak. It isn't as intimidating once you get a few piping projects under your belt. At least that was how it was for me. Very cute and I have a few friends that have a crib in their living room too for that very same reason. It looks cute though 😉 especially if you have super cute baby bedding.

    That's totally perfect! I love your hopscotch quilt! I'm so glad you found a great place to put it to use 🙂
