    Thanks everyone. The quilt is from a pattern in Quilt-loversí Favorites from American Patchwork & Quilting, published by Better Homes and Gardens Books. I think itís in Volume 2. Iím not sure what the designer called it.

    As for the drapery shirring, I didn't use it -- I really wanted box pleats and couldn't find any shirring to do those, so I did it the old fashioned way -- a little bit of math, a marking pencil and a ruler.

    Any chance you'd be willing to give step by step instructions? I would love to do that with my bed, but don't know where to start.

    I'm in the process of writing a tutorial. The text is written, but I need to add some photographs. Naturally, I didn't take any while I was making the dust ruffle -- so I need to do those next.

    The quilt and pillows look so comforting, it is like they are screaming for some one to come take a nap.
