I'm feeling blue but a good blue!
Interestingly blue is one of those colours I rarely use. I like blue, I just don't seem to use it much. On one of my studio purge/cleaning binges last winter, I decided it was time to use some of the fabric from my quilting days. After all, it has been sitting in those drawers for years. Amazingly, I DID NOT purchase any fabric for this quilt top - frightening isn't it!?
Most of the blues were leftover from the one and only blue (and yellow) quilt I made years ago.
I did end up buying the backing fabric as my pieced backing just didn't work. It also means I can reverse the quilt. I came across a pattern using various size squares by Kaffe Fassett online which made construction very fast and easy. Quilting was done by my friend Hilary on her long arm - thank you Hilary!
I added the yellow borders on only two sides as this covers an outdoor sofa.
A wonderful way to USE those fabrics!
Enjoy your weekend and chat again Monday.
