Two Dusty Blue blocks

I had plenty of dusty blue in my stash, left over from when I first started quilting and I had accumulated a good supply of Civil War and other muted fabrics. First, I pulled out this one for my large block:

...and made this 12.5" block:

Next up was the smaller block, for which I found a strip of Civil War dusty blue:


The nice print that went with it also had green, cream, and browns:


...and made this 6.5" block:

I'm not usually a blue with brown fan, but these blocks are lovely.
