Leaded Lotus

Designed after a stained glass window, the Lotus Baby Blanket is an interesting play of light and shadow. The Lotus flower has been a symbol in various ancient cultures, based on color, representing birth, purity, love, fertility, or peace.  Whatever colors you choose, it is a perfect blessing for a new life.
