This little 9" square was created using the only scraps of dusty blue I could find. I decided to try a patriotic theme, since these are colors I almost never put together in a quilt. The dusty blue came to me as a 10" square someone had left over from a quilt from a long time ago. The gingham was also a gift, as was the red batik with the dots. I think the outside border was also a gift. I did purchase the white and the dark blue with dots for another project. I grew up with blue, all blue, as my very favorite color. Somewhere along the line, I have moved away from it. If I use blue now in my quilts, it is teal, aqua, or turquoise. I don't remember when that happened. Anyway, I call this Miss American Pie. It will be another AAQI quilt.
Do I like the color? Yes.
Will I use it again? I really don't know. Right now, I am trying to work out of my stash, and I don't have many blues.
The gingam with the dusty blue and red are perfect together. Miss American pie is wonderful.
Very light and refreshing!
I like this, with the curves and the way the colours swoop in and out. I'm trying to work out how you did this.
It's interesting thought whne a color pops in and you find a use for it! So the dust blue inspired a sweet AAQI quilt! That seems to have been worth the exercise.
Lovely, Miki!! Very visually interesting. Love the curved seams.
