Hi friends,
I am organizing my sewing room and have found I must love blue...I have a lot of blue...so I am looking for a pattern that would be pretty using varying shades of blue. I would love something fast and easy.
I like appliqué too...so tell me what ya think.
After all this organizing and I am not done...my brain is muddled.
as usual.
Thanks,
Susan

I did a block of the month in blues and I really like it.

Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville has some beautiful blue scrap quilts. They don't have any applique but I think you could easily incorporate some. Here are links to a couple of her blue scrappys. I love all of these and have a blue scrap quilt on my to do list. It is just deciding what I want to make with those blues I am saving.

It is easy to spend hours looking at her quilts and any of her designs can easily be done in a blue theme.

These are not my quilts, just two I like. I like the 2nd one so much I use it as my computer wallpaper.
Rail Fence - going dark-medium-light consistently would also make a good looking blue quilt. I did one in purples for a friend..

It's not easy but a French Braid quilt would be beautiful.

If you have dark tonals you could make a Snowflake Quilt. You would have to have some white for the flakes!

What about a Yellow Brick Road - very easy.

If that's Paula Nadelstern's Snowflake that you're recommending - it is a lot of hard work, takes forever.
