Origami Crane Cot Quilt

Mum has finished the little one's cot quilt and I'm just delighted with it!


The fabrics are pieces that I collected whilst living in Japan. I just love how if you look closely, there are gorgeous little images in each block.


There are even origami cranes within the origami cranes.


There are some gorgeous little hand-stitched touches.


The quilt out the front of our place... (well the next door neighbours - that's our place on the left, my workroom window in the top corner) and DH's fingers peeking over the top of the gate.

And while it's not the season to need it yet, I just love seeing it on the cot.

I think mum did such a good job on it and I'm thrilled with how it turned out! It's something the little one will grow up with and I'm sure will treasure forever. Thank you so much mum!

The pattern is based on Margaret Rolfe's Peace Quilt which I was originally told about by a very lovely lady (a non-blogger) - thank you to you too Marla!

Oh wow, the piecing is absolutely beautiful. That must have taken a really really long time!

The colours and the fabric and piecing combine to make such a stunning quilt! I love it.

I'm seeing Margaret tomorrow so I'll tell her about your mum's quilt (Or maybe I'll print out your post!)
