Red, White and the Blues

6.15.2017

I am calling this one Red, White and the Blues because I didn't have enough navy prints to make it scrappy.  In other words, each navy print would have to be used several times and I didn't want to do that. Instead I added in the aqua blue instead. 


I am slowly, but surely making barely any dents in my Bonnie and Camille fabrics. 


I had an ever growing pile of white tone on tone fat quarters in my stash. I never knew what to do with them. My Friendship Love quilt used many shades of white and I liked how it turned out, so  decided to do the same thing with this quilt using as many white tone on tone fabrics as I could. I mixed them up and used them in the blocks and as well as the sashing. My pile of white tone on tone  fabrics are much smaller now and I think it makes the quilt look interesting. 



Until I get around to making the back and getting it quilted, it will rest on my upstairs railing, along with a few more quilts that need attention....SOON! 


 Have a happy Thursday!!

  3. Just lovely! I've been mixing it up in my background, sashing, etc. fabrics and like you, I think it makes the quilt more interesting. Why use one fabric when you can use 20? More is more!
