This is the greatest quilt for a little boy! My Oliver loves the ear and tail that hang from the doggy, it is so cute. There are so many cute quilts out there for little girls, and now finally one for your little Mr! The applique is pretty simple and easy, the pieces aren't too intricate. The quilt features snails, a snake and a dog. My favorite squares, the argyle. We love argyle, it's underrated. And the pattern has a really easy to follow instructions and diagram on those squares. I especially love it for little boys as you can see here in my boy's bedroom.
