Cot quilt panels

Several years ago Linda and I went for a trip to Sydney.

While we were there we had the opportunity to go to a clearance sale for a fabric shop that was relocating.

I bought some cot panels.  From memory they were AUD$4 a panel and even better they came with their own backing fabric which repeated the balloons and bears theme pattern.

I am not sure whether I bought three or four of these panels.  At the time I did not have any babies in mind that they might be suitable for but felt sure they would be useful someday.

Yesterday Linda machine quilted the last of these panels and I did the binding.

We had made friends with a waitress at our favourite local cafe and she is about to give birth to a baby girl.

Our cot panel is our gift to her to welcome a new life into the world.

You two are such delightfully thoughtful people. I bet the new Mum is thrilled with your generosity and kind thoughts.
