A blue quilt???

Well I was in quilting limbo land. Waiting for some material for this quilt and needing to find a large chunk of time so I can lay all these squares on the floor to arrange them in rows for this quilt and my overlocker needs rethreading so I can finish off this dress. So what does a girl do? Start a new project! And its going to be a blue quilt! Blue is a colour I hardly get to use, this is going to be fun!

Have had these two patterns ear marked for awhile, so am going to combine the two designs or just leave them open on the ironing board to look at every now and again for a bit of inspiration. The one with the yellow boarder is called Banana Lounge! WT??!




So I have rumaged through my blue stash and here is the first block done. I've tinted out where it would be cut back to a 5.5 inch block. I love doing this style of crazy patch, no matching up of 1/4th inch seams, Just ohhh, that looks nice against this one, lets put that there and oh! Thats a pretty print, lets put that one there! I'm thinking 4 blocks across and 5 down, a rectangle cot sized quilt. I'm actaully quite excitied about this one.

I've thought of a better idea...why I don't I do one too and then we can do a few extra blocks and swap them....what do you think????

I love to see you branching out into blue, lol. This crazy style of quilting sounds intruiging. I can't wait to see the finished product.
