Kind of blue
I decided to make a start on a quilt that I have been thinking about making for quite some time now. I was showing the Mister this picture here and saying that one day I would like to make it (or one similar), and he said "what's holding you back?" I mumbled something about it being a big project etc etc, whereupon he replied "just have a go" so I am.
I decided to make it a blue and cream/white quilt because I have always wanted to make a blue and cream/white quilt, and I also happen to have quite a few blue fabrics already. The blocks themselves are quite small, 5 inches (including the seam allowance) so they don't actually use much fabric (I knew there was a use for all the little offcuts that I have saved over the last couple of years)
Apparently there are 5,602 pieces, comprising of 169 blocks, 52 triangles and 4 corner kites in the original quilt.
