a change of color

When I was originally looking at fabrics for the nursery, I decided to base everything off of the central fabric in the picture below: Amy Butler's Water Bouquet in midnight. But the more I've looked at it & rearranged fabrics, I kept thinking it was just a little too neon for me. I love the fabric, but I don't know that I want to be surrounded by it.

Last night at my baby shower, I got an amazingly cute doll made by my friend Julia . . . and the colors were exactly what I kept going back to in my mind. I am such an orange/coral & blue type of person. So today, I went to Beverly's to see if they had the same Water Bouquet, but in the mint colorway. Surprisingly, they did! I couldn't resist, & I bought it, along with a couple more coordinating fabrics. I am much happier when I look at the color combos together now. It just feels so much more like me.

Isn't this doll so cute?!!

I finally drafted the quilt out today, so I hope to get this bad boy knocked out in the next couple weeks.
It's finally starting to hit me that I'm having a baby girl, & I'm getting really excited!


  1. Love the colors Liz! Can't wait to see the finished product:) Oh, and yes! That doll is adorable! We need to encourage Julia to sell them on etsy:)

  2. oh can I be your baby? your quilts are always so beautiful... i LOVE the fabric you picked out. And the doll is darling!!!!
