This  photo shows part of the hand quilting that I stiched after I’ve removed all the basting stitches. You can add more hand quilting if you prefer and if you have time to sew more. Now I’m ready to sew on the binding. Eh voila! The finished piece is a fun and very bright cot quilt with 12 panels with animal...
