Hello! Today I'd love to share with you some pretty blue things that I've made as of late.
I have been working for a long time on the quilt above for the master bedroom. I finally finished, and it's keeping us cozy and warm!
I saved material from my husband's shirts, pretty fabric that I found at the free stores, a bit of material I had from the first curtains I made for my first home with my husband. Then I cut all the squares to the same size (I thought postage stamp size would be fun, but opted for a larger size). Then with all the squares I had, it was still a bit shy of the size I needed so I added a light blue border all around. Then I used a darker blue sheet for the underneath, and some of the same blue sheet to make the seam binding for around the edging. Oh, and I bought a 100% cotton quilting batting for this quilt. I don't usually splurge, but I know it'll last for years.
OH, and I just sewed lines on each side of the seams along the one direction to "quilt" it.
Below is the material I used for my first curtains I made. I loved lace even then.
The quilt is complimented by the blue gingham curtains, and the blue/white appliqué quilt of a mountain/forest scene. I think the blue really comes out with the darker wooden logs of the walls.
Then in a previous post, I shared a hat that I'd made...here is me wearing it. I don't usually share pictures of me, but here I am.
Then I also made a triangle scarf out of a blue variegated yarn.
It's so nice to have some fresh new warmies to begin the new year.
Below you can see better the colours.
I used a pattern called The Madeline Triangle Scarf - Ginger Knots
It's very simple, and very warm!
Here you can see the different blues on the hat and scarf...but they still are ok worn together.
Praying you have a lovely day, with perhaps a touch of blue in it.
