My first patchwork quilt

My first and (as of yet) only patchwork quilt.
This means the world to me because
a. It took bloomin ages to complete all that hand appliqué
b. It is made from lots of vintage fabrics from my childhood, and I cannot wrap myself up in it without remembering all sorts of wonderful moments from the golden age of the 90's.
c. It has knickers on. Can you spot them?

The quilt currently lives here, on my classroom chair, with the patchwork cushion my clever mum made for me.
