    Blue Quilt

    Hi Everyone,

    Here is a picture of my finished blue quilt. I purchased the fabric to make this for my step-son because his favourite colour used to be blue. Luckily before making it I asked him if blue was still his favourite colour and he said "no - I like grey and yellow". So I made him a grey and yellow quilt. Since I had the fabric I decided to go ahead and make the blue one anyway. Just the binding to sew down.

    Must have been a problem with my phone when I took the picture as I don't know what that dark line across the top of the quilt is!

    Hugs

    Very nice, modern look.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Your study in blues is very pretty and the quilting is attractive. Nice work.

    Must be my eyes because I don't see a dark line? The quilt is great and I like the way you quilted it with all the straight lines, but mixing diagonal and horizontal.

    Optical illusion quilts are mesmerizing! Well done. So is this going to be for him anyway, or will you make him a gray and yellow one? Is he a teenager? My 17 year old liked green in early elections, blue in later elementary, grey in middle school, orange in 10th, pink in 11th, and now he’s on an orange kick. I would not base my fabric choices on what he says is his favorite color—I’ll make what I want. Haha.

    What a great quilt! Very modern, yet has a bit of an Amish feel to it as well. You did an excellent job with the various values of blue. The straight line quilting is perfect for this.

    I really like this and blue is not one of my favorite colors.

    That’s a really neat quilt, and I like the straight line quilting.

    Looks nice - I like the very clean, straight line look of it.

    Love the stacked blues and your quilting design. Funny how they can change their minds so fast.

    I have to compliment you as this is one of the few modern quilts that I really like. Did you have a pattern? Would love to make a lap quilt for a friend of mine who is moving away.

    Beautifully done! I love how you quilted it!
