Do You Love Blue?

The color combination of blue and white is heaven to me.  Blue has been my favorite color forever.  I love all blues.  For me, they all go together.  You can't go wrong. Combining blue with white makes a quilt, a room, an outfit,  crisp and clean.  Denim never seems to go out of fashion, but blue does tend to go in and out of style, even with quilting fabric.  So I have quite a stash.  A really, really big stash.  You have to buy it when you see it. About 25 % of my quilting fabric is blue.
My goal this past year has been to reduce my blue fabric stash. I actually have a bag of scraps that I just want to use up. It's pieces left over from other projects and outdated fabrics.
 This is Blue Scrap Quilt 1.0
 I made it using 2 1/2" strips to make the blocks. 

 Bailey just loves a new quilt.
 I even have a collection of blue and white plates.
The back was created from 9" and 18" squares. That really put a dent in the scrap bag.

I have 2 more tops that are waiting top be quilted. That will leave me with enough scraps to make one more quilt.  This has really put a crimp in my love affair with blue and white.

  1. It's great, I don't remember seeing that one. Did you quilt it? I need to do some really scrappy ones like this!

  2. LOVE this quilt! And the room, the bed and the plates - decorating perfection!

  3. Cheryl,
    This quilt reminds me of the blue city I visited last year. Gorgeous!

  4. This is beautiful! I'll bet it did dent the blue stash a little. However scraps make more scraps, so there's probably plenty left.

  5. I need to do the same thing, I have a lot of fabrics with plans, now I need to sit down and work on them. For now I will concentrate on Christmas since I do gifts and then I can spend the winter catching up.


  6. Oh my! Your quilts are jaw dropping gorgeous... blues and whites a perfect together!! Stunning quilts!

  7. Love your blue quilt! You did a great job getting the contrast just right for the barn raising pattern to show and yet there is still so much variety and different shades that it almost sparkles!i Bailey looks cozy on it!
    Looking forward to see the next two!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
