This week, I hosted Mixed Media Monday. I chose the theme primary and secondary colors because I wanted to embrace the strength and the joy that stong, vibrant colors convey. (Plus, I had this lovely Mola-inspired fabric I wanted to use.) The quilt is around 32″ x 40″ and will be given as a gift to baby coming to our family soon.

I prefer strong colors for baby quilts. Baby’s lives are filled with growth, learning, bold new ideas. Why should their bodies be swaddled in pastels? I hope my cousin, her husband and new baby find it happy and joyful, just as I hope the changes to their family with this child are happy and joyful.

Bright colors for a bright baby.
