DforV: Now for the MATH. Um.

Standard crib mattress is 28′ X 52′.  So I’m thinking 32′ X 42′ is a good size.  And I can always add on to the sides if it’s not big enough.

Each flower is 2 inches.

So. 32/2 = 16 and 42/2 = 21.  So.  16 flowers across and 21 down.  So then that makes 16 x 21 = 336.  

THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY SIX 
HOLY SHIT that is a lot of flowers.

I have obtained 10 colors in various shades of yellow, gray, blue and green.  That means 34 of 6 colors and 33 of 4 colors.  

Each color will have a middle of the same color but different shade.  (Except the green which will have to be added to the blue.)
