Default blue and darker blue quilt with white

I bought a layer cake that I thought I was going to love, but it turned out I only loved about 12 of the pieces. So I searched and found a pattern I thought might work with just those 12. It is called Treasure Amidst the Bric-a-Brack, from a book called Mystery Quilts by Rita Fishel. I think it turned out well.

Let me see if I can remember how to post a picture. It has been a while...

Great job in using the well loved pieces. Don't you just hate that when you can't see the whole layer cake and the top one is the eye catching one? Luckily a few web sites now give you a thumbnail of the entire line which gives you a better idea of the contents. I love your graphic quilt.

It’s a pretty quilt. Layer cakes usually don’t work for me because of the squares in the pack I don’t like. The blue surprises me since you love purple!

It did turn out well. That's a great pattern for a layer cake. Whoever gets that one will love it too!
