A Beautiful Quilt

We are linking up with Beautiful Life Friday at The Inspired Room. We hope you like our quilt and our blog, take a look around!
As Heather showed with Sophie's Quilt, our mom makes gorgeous quilts for our babies. She made this quilt almost 2 years ago and I love it! The fabric is mostly Shagri La by Moda. I love the greens and blues together on a cream background. She adjusted the pattern a little to make it longer instead of square, and I love that because I will be putting this on his soon-to-be toddler bed. Here is a close up shot, we put his hand print on it, which I adore of course! He was several months old when we did it, so no, that's not a newborn's hand.
This fabulous quilter, our momma, has designed a new pattern for us, and it is amazingly cute! You can see the pattern and picture on our sidebar, it's called Snakes, Snails and Weiner Dog Tails.

The quilt is beautiful and I can't blame you for loving it. I like baby quilts a bit longer as well then they can use them for a few years instead of months. Love the handprint!
