~Snake Quilt~

When Kevin was a young man, his grandma wanted to make him a quilt. So Kevin drew up a design, and went to the fabric store with his grandma. He was really into snakes at that time *shudder*, so the quilt would be of a snake, of course!



His grandma made the quilt just the way he wanted it, and then she made it just the way she wanted it. You see, the snake is quilted as any snake should be when they are quilted, but the rest of the quilt was her domain. The cream background is filled with quilted pictures. It is truly a work of art!



The quilt is for a queen size bed. It was a labor of love!

It is on display in our living room, with several other quilts that his grandma made.

The best part is that you even have the quilt folded just right to display the snake! :) What a special gift...

Hello Tammy,
I realize it's been quite awhile since my last visit. We moved from San Diego to Vegas and are now settled in! Finally.
I hope to start stopping by more regularly.
Oh, I went back to work...with my hubby.
