I made this cot quilt for a friend’s first baby. I found the pattern in a French quilting book but the material used was very floral and my friend suggested stripes instead.

Material Notes

All cotton.

    Many thanks for your lovely comments…its all machine appliqued, some of the shapes like the dragonflies are appliqued on flat with a tiny zigzag stitch. Other shapes like the tree and leaves i folded under a tiny hem then I stitched on with an ordinary running stitch. I’m pleased you like it.

    It is very cute and modern due to the spripes. How did you make applique? The photo is also great with the teddy bear and striped cushions in background.

    I like the modern feel to this quilt. The colors are great! Did you do the applique by hand or machine? Great work!
