Welcome to Day 2 of The Shades of Blue Sew It, Show It Challenge starts hosted by the amazing Carla @Creatin In the Sticks. Thanks so much to Carla for letting me join in this fun challenge. Blue happens to be one of my favorite colors, and I knew I had to join. When the subject of this challenge first came up, I already had a project in mind. I had planned to make the daughter of a friend of our family a wedding quilt, and I had chosen Bonnie Hunter's digital pattern called Winter Blues. While I knew I wouldn't get the whole quilt top made, I thought I could get a great portion of it done. This quilt measures 81 x 95 inches.
I am making this entirely out of scraps I had in my cut-up strip containers, and scraps I had not yet cut up.
As of Saturday night I had the 120-16 patches, measuring 4.5 inches made, the 99 9-patches, I had the setting triangles and corners made, along with the sashings and cornerstones cut out. My kitchen counter looked like this:
I worked on assembling it 2 full days. One half is done, and I started working on the second half. There is also a braided border out of blues.
So that is my Shades if Blue Challenge. The digital pattern can be found here at Quiltville. It is 25% off until 1/31/23.
