Studio Snapshots | A Baby Quilt in Purple, Grey and Gold

My cousin is having a baby in a couple a months and I really want to make her a quilt. She has a nursery Pinterest board which mas made it very easy for me so figure out colors and the general feel for the room. I started by dyeing a bunch of small pieces of fabric in different tints of purple, grey and gold. I then showed them the swatches and asked them which they preferred.




After they pulled out the ones they didn’t like (the Xs in black) I made a few changes to the palette myself (the markings in purple and yellow) and then dyed yards of fabric in all those colors, plus I made a couple of multi-color pieces of fabric to see if Jess and Jim liked that at all:


I’ll be back tomorrow to show you how those bins turned out!
