Mia’s favorite color was purple, so it was a no-brainer that we choose purple for her quilt block. The background fabric of her quilt block is one of the fabrics from a quilt made for her to celebrate her “first lung birthday.” This quilt was a favorite of her to curl up in the evenings when she was ill. The quilt was especially made for her by a friend of her mothers. The picture we chose was one taken in the backyard of our new home. It was taken by her Uncle Brad when she was in good health.
