Purple Basket Quilt

Finished my quilt top for Hands 2 Help charity organized over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  I do love purple.  I say that my favorite color is green and I think it is; however, my husband says I pick purple far more than  I pick any other color.  :)  Now that the tops finished I need to decide what to do for the back!  

Mother's day is just around the corner and so I've been thinking about my Mama a lot lately.  I love her so and I am so blessed that she is a part of my life.  So many things she said I'd understand when I got older, I do. So many things that she said I was strong enough to make it through, I did.  So many things she said I'd love as a mother, I love.  She is a reflection of grace and EXCITEMENT.  :)  

I've also started another quilt with a little Marmalade.  Who doesn't love some Marmalade.  -Have a great Weekend! -Little Mama Hen

  1. Those fabrics almost glisten with the value change from light to dark. Beautiful!

  2. Love your purple quilt top and those marmalade blocks are so pretty. Have a great mothers day (in the UK mother's day was back in March)

  3. Beautiful purple quilt! Definitely one of my favorite colors!

  6. April,
    I love your purple charity quilt and all the sweet things you say about your mother! I enjoy all the little family stories you sprinkle in your writings. Writer's heart, you have!

  7. The purple quilt top is lovely! I say red is my favourite colour, but so often I'm drawn to purple too.

  8. What sweet words about your Mom - I'm sure she appreciates them! Your purple quilt is sooo pretty. I think I lost track of your blog for awhile - it's great to see it again.
