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.
