This cot quilt was made for my new Great nephew, Oscar - 3 weeks old now! You can take the little animals in and out of their 'baskets' - so it's a game too! The balloons were all 'reverse' aplliqued and then embroidered and hand quilted over the top. More photos and info here

That's just about perfect. The beautiful colours and shapes of the balloons, the swirly stitching (with flags?) and the adorable animals - I love it!

As a quilter, I know how much hard work went into this. I am in awe of your skill. Great quilt. He is going to love it. Make sure you put on the back all of the info for it.
made by, for, when. That way it can be handed down for his son. Again great job.
