Today’s inspiration is my favorite color…Purple!

Purple Inspiration Board

Purple has always been my favorite color, even as a girl.  I love it’s variety- from pale Powder and Lilac to the richness of Sangria, to the color royalty of deep Plum.

Mia’s Quilt- May 2017 Sewing Project

Our niece had her first baby—- over a year ago!!! I immediately promised her a baby quilt and still  have not made it for her.  (((Yikes.)))  A few months later, I had my seventh baby and our first baby girl!!! I haven’t sewn one thing since she was born.  I am so very excited to dust off my sewing machine.  I think this project will be perfect to get the sewing going again.

I bought this lovely quilt pattern, Take Heart–by Mack and Mabel from her Etsy shop.  Isn’t it adorable!

The pattern is well written and gives instructions for several different sizes.  My niece picked a blue color scheme.  I immediately thought of the Cold Spell fabric line by Laundry Basket Quilts.

The pattern uses jelly roll strips so I purchased the Cold Spell Batiks jelly roll.  I think they are going to look sweet as the hearts against a warm creamy white background.

We are hoping to visit them out West next month.  I would love to be able to hold her all bundled up in her new quilt.


Baby Mia—OMG– Is she not the cutest !???!!
