All prepared and rearing to go ....

Other than ebaying, I spent yesterday evening cutting triangles and pinning bed linen to fleece blankets for a throw. It may not look like much at this stage but it will all come together tonight, I'm hoping:



Fabric selection for triangles: IKEA linens, left-overs gifted to me by a British quilting friend, my grand-mother's bed linen ...



Added: This is what the princess bed should look like - well, in principle at least!



It will have a quilt (see first image) and the netting (see second image). At first I wanted to rim the bottom but now I'm all focussed on those triangles at the top. Only that mine aren't that contrasting which I hope won't be a problem design-wise.

She will love it...heck I'd love it! When I was small my Mom painted stars on the ceiling that glowed in the dark! I still remember them!

That's going to be cute!

What are you going to use to hold it out and up at the top? Something like a hula hoop?

Your princess bed is going to be wonderful! I think this is such a fun idea!
