What's better for sewing than a rainy 4th of July? And what's better for getting yourself together than making a quilt for babies and parents? The day and the activity combined were just what I needed. The KC Modern Quilt Guild members are making a set of quilts to donate to a local hospital's NICU and I volunteered to make 12 blocks in any colorway. Vicki slyly assigned me to the lilac/brown group. She knows I don't do purple....a gentle push out of my comfort zone. I used a brown (with alot of gray in it) organic cotton, Kona snow, and some linen curtains from IKEA as the solids and a few purples that I acquired recently. I know, it's more neutrals than purple, but it's a start. I chose to make a quilt like this one. I hope it's not too un-baby, though I'd sure be proud to cover a little one with this. I didn't mean to disappear for so long. Thanks for all the emails, prayers and good wishes. I wish I could tell you that I have answers. There are only more questions. No news is good news as they say.
