Good Questions: Nursery Bedding Textiles

Kristen is making her own crib bedding for soon-to-be-born baby girl. She sent us an email with this picture and asked: I am planning on making the bedding for our daughter, who is due June 25th. I am in love with this pattern. I am looking for some suggestions for coordinating patterns. I was thinking pink or green polka dots, or maybe a multi-stripe? Would love to get some suggestions for other fabrics which would coordinate with sophistication and not look overly cutsey. Thanks!

Dear Kristen: Congratulations on the baby. We love the Apples & Pears fabric you've chosen. For a coordinating fabric, how about Freckles in mint?

If you want to pump up the pink consider Marais Stripe by Alexander Henry. Fellow Editor Carrie suggests this and this. Anyone else have some good suggestions for Kristen?
