Homemade Quilt?

I am on a mission to solve a major design problem I have been faced with for the last few months.  Olivia's current bedding, shown below, is quite busy, and I am having a terrible time finding coordinating fabric for some of the projects I am working on for her room, so I have thought about adding a simple quilt to the bed as the primary bedding and folding up the duvet at the bottom of the bed, so that it isn't so prominent.

I love the pattern and I love the colors, I want to keep them both in the room, BUT I would like to also be able to introduce other fabric options to help add texture to the room.  So I have an idea...

This quilt would calm down the bed, would coordinate with the curtains, which are also the pool color from PB Teen...and this quilt would allow me to paint the rest of her room the color of her current accent wall.  However, here is the thing, I like this quilt, and I almost love it, but I don't love it for the price and how simple it is, so I am wondering if I could make one...if I could just procure a simple white quilt and add ribbon detail to the quilt in the coordinating colors for a fraction of the price.  What are your thoughts?
