Another one bites the dust!
Second of four completed! This is the cot quilt for the raffle at our show the weekend after next in aid of the local Radiotherapy Cancer Treatment Unit which is currently in the planning stages and all contributions gratefully received by them. At present people needing daily radiotherapy have to travel a round trip of over a hundred miles each day to Bristol - not pleasant if you're well never mind if you're undergoing that sort of treatment.
Slightly girly colours but would do for a boy if pushed. I've mainly machine quilted this with flowers similar to the sunflowers on 'The Brute' but larger leaves and smaller flowers not as intensely quilted gives it a softer snugglier feel - better for a baby. As I'm absolutely useless at following the lines I've hand quilted around the outside of each butterfly and a spiral in the centre of each flower.
Right onto the group 'Moon over the Mountains' quilt next - binding in navy blue which will need good light and definitely my glasses on :o)
