Cot quilt finished

My Mum has been visiting & has finished her cot quilt for my niece. We traipsed all over the local botanic gardens to find the perfect spot to photograph it.
I had poor Mum climbing over hedges, battling branches & all but hanging from trees to get these photos. The things I make her do!
The quilt is made from Anna Griffin's 'Mackenzie' range by Windham Fabrics.
I really love the back of the quilt, borne of necessity as we didn't have enough backing fabric.
All folded & ready for delivery. Good job Mum!
Unfortunately, the reveal mentioned in my last tantalising post has been unavoidably delayed. Sorry to be such a tease! Circumstances beyond my control have meant a little more waiting.

  5. A very pretty quilt, and would suit a girl OR boy, I think. And taking it to the botanic gardens is a great idea. Did you get any funny looks?
