The True Blue quilt block is supposed to have just two fabrics, a light and a dark. Of course, I can never do things that simple. My first attempt I had three fabrics. I didn't care for that, too much white. So I decided to change the center block to a dark and added a fourth fabric. I'm not sure if this changes the name of the block or not. Is it still a True Blue quilt block?
Well, I didn't leave it with the dark in the center. I think I felt like it was changing the look of the block too much. So I added yet another fabric.
Boy can I complicate things. When I saw the four blocks together, I really thought they were too busy. So... here we go again. I decided to put a white sashing inbetween the blocks and wanted to add a star in the corners. This is what I ended up with.
It turned out to be a beautiful quilt. My picture doesn't do it justice. If you would like to follow my blog, just click on the RSS Feed button to the right. On to the next quilt block.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
