    I did the Eleanor Burns Tennessee waltz in blue, twice. It would probably look good done scrappy.

    Thank you for all of your suggestions. I have worked for 3 days and have one bookcase of fabric refolded and sorted. Have 3 more to go but not as much fabric as in the first.
    Finding material that I am thinking why did I buy that...so a blue quilt and a scrappy are in my near future.
    Love all the ideas.
    thanks,
    Susan

    How about a log cabin, using the really light shades for the light side of the quilt and the medium to darker shades for the dark side. Or use white on the light side and all the different blues on the dark side!

    Hi, I just so happen to be working on a log cabin in all shades of blue including some denim. The neat part is that it is literally quilted as I piece the block. :D :D

    I made a quilt using all colors of blue. It is beautiful, I gave it to my youngest daughter. It is made with different patterns of blueinit. I made blocks of the log cabin pattern and blocks of fans patterns ( fans . that are just in the corners of the blocks,the blades of the fan have pointed tips, and not round ends) NOW, I put the blocks in an arrangement that made sunflower s , with the log cabin blocks worked in. I know this is not a good explaination. but it makes a beautiful quilt. The fans are made on a tone on tone beige fab.

    How about 4 o 9?? It is a 4 patch and then cut into thirds horizontally and vertically and resew into a 9 patch.
    Try it with paper to get the full effect before you cut into your collection.

    How about Log Cabin. Make the "light" logs a different width than "dark" side logs. Gives a curved effect to finised blocks. Got one on my to-do list. Please post pics of whatever you do.
