FOUND: The Blues!

I’ve been looking for just the right blue fabrics to make a bed size quilt for a good friend.  She loves the color blue but my stash is woefully lacking in blues.  In my quilting travels, nothing materialized (pun intended!) until I found the blues in Annabelle by Williamsburg from Windham Fabrics.

I’m using the “floating 8”  pattern published in Precut Quilts by janie lou.  This book is one of my favorites;  it features modern, fresh designs using precuts.  I think the mix of these traditional fabrics with janie’s modern design will be beautiful!

My local quilt shop did not have precuts on hand, so I am in the process of cutting 5 inch squares from fat quarters.  Once I finish cutting my fabrics, this quilt will go together quickly.  I’ll add this to my Christmas vacation projects and soon  I will be celebrating that I finally found the blues!
