    Love all these ideas...had to look a lot of patterns up.
    French Braid is beautiful but looks hard.
    I think I have enough blue to do a little of all of these.
    May make small projects so I can try them all.
    Thank you sooooooo much.
    Don't stop !!!!
    Thanks,

    I made this "strip twist" quilt in purples, but would be great in blues too. Directions are on quiltville.com.

    I recently saw a red and white quilt that was quilted with red thread. It really make the quilt stand out. I have plans to make a blue and white Ohio Star quilt and plan on using blue thread to help to bring all the blues together and make it stand out. You may consider it. If you want a more scrappy quilt cream and lite browns look great together too. It is just an idea.

    Susan - When I am browsing (and I spend many hours doing that rather than actually sewing) if I see a quilt I like, I copy it and put in a folder on my computer for future inspiration. In my "Tonal Blues Qlts" folder, I found:
    (1) Blue Palace quilt kit, 68 x 102 from Keepsake Qltg ($155) but I downloaded the pattern free from Hancocks of Paducah.
    (2) a great Hunters Star in blues on the cover of Brenda Henning's book,
    "Among Friends, More Scrap Qlts" from BearPaw Productions.
    (3) The quilters warehouse featured a gorgeous appliqué and feathered star quilt called Midnight Stars by Elaine Waldschmitt, 86x101" and the pattern was $20
    (4) a nice two-block blue quilt called "Snow White" by Joen Wolfrom,
    a 56" square. It features an 8-pointed star alternating with another block
    whose name I don't know.
    You could also consider a Trip Around the World quilt in shades of blues.
    If you have a computer and web access, just Google "quilts in blue fabrics"
    and I'm sure something will inspire you. If you need instructions on how to
    make certain quilt blocks just go to "QuiltersCache" and Marcia Hohn has
    excellent illustrated instructions on hundreds of quilt blocks, each with a
    sample quilt. - Best wishes - Judy

    nice quilt
    railfence is an easy pattern, and always looks good, particularly in one colour, like yours

    I just finished hand piecing an Around the World queen top in 10 different shades of green prints (2-1/2" squares). It would be great in all blues as well. I started at the center with the darkest, then shaded out to lightest and back to darkest at the widest point. Continued shading back to lightest then to darkest at the corners. It is about 80" square. Have not decided about adding a border(s) or not.

    Here is my version of "Bonneville" by Cherri House as featured in the F&P Easy Quilts-Summer 2010

    All blue batiks for my younger brother's birthday. Very easy to do and resizeable.

    Love the braid idea, also around the world is a great way to use up fabric. they are easy and fast, use lots of material. you could make a couple with the same fabrics in different color order and they will still coordinate, if you have enough blues!

    French braid isn't hard. Practice on some scraps till you feel good about it then move to the real thing

    I really like your "Blue Stripper"! I'd also like to suggest a Disappearing Nine or Four Patch as easy blocks and they look really good if you vary the color values. I've done one in greens and another in blues and browns and the turned out very nice.

    It's not quick, but a bargello heart in shades of blue would be beautiful!

    The Holiday Update 2010 Keepsake Quilting catalog has 2 patterns using blue fabrics. Both are really pretty. I ordered one myself for fabric I've been collecting.

    Well, at least you are finding things in your reorganization of your sewing room. I made me a sewing room out of one of my bedrooms after my daughter moved out, now I can't find any of my rulers. I just can't imagine what I've done with them. I finally found a little ironing board that I had lost too, but it was in my cluttered closet. The ironing board is made from a woodent TV tray, with padded top and ironing board cover on top (all stapled to the TV tray. It is so handy for ironing blocks, you can fold it up and put it away (somewhere where you can find it, ha ha)

    A french braid would be fabulous. They are actually easier than one would think.

    I think the French Braid would be beautiful. I love that pattern. I haven't made it yet but I do plan on it someday when I get some things caught up. Have fun with whatever pattern you decide on.

    just wondering if an all-blue log cabin would be interesting... are there enough shades for that kind of contrast? hmmmm? whatever you decide, it will probably be spectacular!!
