Handmade Crib Quilt and Matching Accessories

This is the crib quilt I made for my new grand-baby. I originally bought these dinosaur panels about a year ago, just to add to my collection of favorite fabrics. Then when I found out grand-baby number four was on the way, and new mommy and daddy chose primary colors for the nursery, I was SEW happy! I went to my source and bought a couple more panels, just in case I had a further brain storm. I just had to make the pillow to match, which is for the rocking chair, to help mommy be comfy while feeding baby. But I could not stop there with all the extra panels I had left, and found a soft piece of flannel in my stash for backing the burp cloths and bib. Well, the picture below shows the result of my further brain-storming:

A multi-purpose drawstring bag (for small toys, a small diaper bag?), two burp cloths, and a bib.

"4 he is like the light of morning at sunrise
on a cloudless morning,
like the brightness after rain
that brings the grass from the earth.'
2 Samuel 23:4
