|Fat Quarters (and pieces of FQs)|
|CW Reproduction blues|
|Oldies: slate blue and that dated primitive-tan-and-blue. How many plaids did they make?!|
The reason for this exercise was to pull out periwinkle blues and turquoise for a forthcoming quilt for granddaughter Rachel's graduation in June. I'm still contemplating what block/pattern I'll use.
This is my most favorite blue fabric. It is NOT a batik, though it looks like one. I bought it at the Sewing Network in Auburn in 1992 or thereabouts. I pull it out and think about what I might make out of it...and then I put it back. :)
I had 3" nine patch blocks (the result of many Block Swappers exchanges) and light/dark HSTs already made, so it was easy to set this 52 x 55 quilt. It's quilted and bound, ready for the next donate-a-quilt occasion. (This is the third time I've made this design. I love the way the nine patch blocks sparkle.)
Go to Patchwork Times to see what other quiltmakers have on their design walls this Monday.
