snails for sawyer!

hi, & welcome! this is the 3rd time i've participated in amy's blogger's quilt festival. it's always an amazing collection of quilts and their stories. and as always, amy's done an awesome job and gotten some great sponsors and prizes!



















this time i decided to share sawyer's baby quilt.  he's our fourth child, and the first who has his own quilt.  i guess there are some benefits to being the last baby!




















aww, look at that sweetie pie!

the quilt is made out of one charm pack, love u by deb strain for moda fabrics.  the backing is the snail print from the same line.  and i bound it with some ticking that came from my husband's grandmother's stash.  the blue border was also from the stash.

it's a simple layout, alternating print charm squares with kona white. i machine quilted it with straight lines following the squares. it's soft and sweet, perfect for our little guy.

thanks for visiting, and be sure to check out all the fantastic quilts linked up over at the blogger's quilt festival!
