From there we used this FANTASTIC tutorial from the blog Crafterhours: Patchwork Crib Bumper Tutorial. We did end up adding about 3 additional quilt squares as the bumper we were slipcovering was a bit longer than hers but it turned out really fantastic.
The finished product:
We used the pink and blue lines of this collection although there's a really pretty lime green colorway as well. For the sashing we patchworked some different lines - I think there's a Joel Dewberry chainlink dot as well as some small polka dot that we found in the calico section at Jo-Ann's.
I can't take credit for ANY of this - my Mom did ALL of the work and for that I am EXTREMELY thankful! :) She's a fantastic seamstress and quilter!!!

*Yes, I know - a crib bumper is a bit controversial.... some people have strong feelings about them and if that's you.... I get it. But please keep your comments to yourself! :)
