    " My play mat that can double as a cot quilt is better in real life than I ever imagined. Amazing quality and the colours of the fabric are gorgeous. Lauren's communication was great and she was patient with me while I decided on what I wanted. I highly recommend Thistle and Fox if you're after something uniquely handmade. "
