    My friend called today and asked if I could fit a baby quilt in. I said of course. Well, this was one amazing quilt. She will be making a sleeve for the option of hanging it. I shudder to think this may be dragged along the floor by some toddler.
    Just a note, the feathers under the name will be coming out. I was not happy with those and the batting allowed up to 12" unquilted.

    Hope she uses it for a wall hanging in the baby's room. It's too gorgeous & too much work to drag on the floor.

    That is gorgeous! I do hope they hang it, it wouldn't take much to mess it up forever!

    It is beautiful. Should be kept and preserved instead of everyday use by a toddler.

    That is a charming quilt. But IMO it's either a baby quilt or an art quilt. I suppose they could hang it on a wall in the nursery. Or they could risk using it while the baby is a baby and then put it away when she begins crawling around.

    But how very sad that we feel something is too beautiful to actually be used.

    I like the little flowers under the name. It's a cute way to underline

    Adorable quilt - cannot imagine it being dragged around the floor - more pride of place!
