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!
