Help me make a crib set!

How wide is the standard crib comforter? I just want a thin batting in between. What should I buy? (I'm such a newbie!) I am looking at this fabric...

What should I back it with? I want a solid color.

So I guess my other question is how many yards per quilt should I order? The fabric is 60" wide. I am thinking of just buying a solid colored bedskirt to match the comforters.

Re: Help me make a crib set!

The comforter from my DS's crib set is 36" x 44 1/2". If you only bought 1 yard you would have to use binding around the edge and that is assuming they cut straight. If I were you I would buy 2 yards and use the extra for accessories. I have seen batting that is already cut to crib size. That would save you time, but probably be more expensive. I would just use fleece in the middle or buy a big pack of batting and back the quilt with chocolate colored cotton. Then buy a chocolate colored bedskirt. I would buy pink, blue or green sheets depending on the fabric that you buy.

I made mine using the Amy Butler "Little Stitches for Little Ones" and I used these bumper pads made by nu-foam.

Here's pics of my bedding set I made.

I was going to recommend this book too. It's super cute. I got it from my library, so check your local library if you want before you buy.
