Blue scraps

As I have quite a few scraps in my blue scrap bin, my quilt will be made from them.  I love a blue and white quilt (with a few scraps of red thrown in of course)  I also like Sujata's suggestion of using the squares as background (white or off white) so that will be a possibility for my quilt.


I'm going to start out by making a couple of different sized blocks and see where that takes me, I will need to draw out a bit of a pattern so I don't get lost along the way.

  1. Great idea; basically a 2-colour quilt but you have such a variety of blue fabrics it is sure to be sophisticated scrappy! .

    1. I think it will be a nice quilt to make, I'm hoping that I can just grab bits for the side rectangles and not overthink it.

  2. I’m in the pondering stage. Have an idea for many colored centers. I’ve pulled out baskets of scraps...two actually are laundry shaped wicker ones. This is not No. 1 on the To Do list but percolating and waiting patiently.

    1. Many coloured centers sound great, the best part of this QAL is there are no rules or deadlines.

  3. You do have a good selection of blues in this photo Pip and like yourself I'm playing with block size.

  4. Blue is one color I never bought. Now whenever I go to a fabric shop, my eyes always land on blue. Looks like I have been missing out! I am with Christine.. At a pondering stage. I have busy schedule until midweek, next week. Oh but so ready! Good idea to play with block size or ultimate size of the quilt.

  5. It will be nice to have the control of the blue in the quilt. Looking forward to seeing your progress!
