Cot Quilt Success!

I’m pretty proud of myself right now, I’ve just finished my first ever quilt! Now I’ll admit I did have my wonderful nan oversea the event, however I must mention that she did not do anything, purely observed. So I completed this from cutting the squares to hand sewing the back of the edging.

I purchased the stunning fabric from eBay and used a fleece blanket from IKEA for the backing. Oh and to pad it out a little more, nan gave me some other fleece like material to put in between. The cutting and pattern arrangement took me about 2 hours, sewing everything together about 7 hours and the hand sewing on the back about 1 hour.
