Zoo animals in soft colours – easy cot quilt number 2

Hardly had a week gone by since I’d had my ‘dream’ about making easy cot quilts, that a work colleague rang to share some wonderful news.   Yes they were expecting!  Ok great thought I,  I was well on the way to making those 4-5 quilts.

With this easy cot quilt,  I decided to ask my friend what colours she preferred.  As she was a work colleague, in a different state, I had not been to her house so had no idea of her colour preferences.  It turned out she likes soft colours.

I took out my graph paper and started doodling designs knowing that I wanted to use some of the zoo animals I already had.

Then it was off to purchase the material and have some fun making it.

For this easy cot quilt the challenge for me was what to do with the border.  What type of pattern should I sew and where to find some examples.  I searched books, bought some of them as well as searched the internet.  Once I found one I didn’t think was going to be too hard I had the problem of how to make the pattern  fit the quilt.  Egg cups provided the solution with a bit of a stretch in the corners….you just don’t notice!
