A little late with dusty blue


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.

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.
