Blue, Blue, My World is Blue

Not really! Natalie over at Cinderberry Stitches has named blue as the color of the day. I am having so much fun with this color challenge. Color is such an integral part of a quilter's world. Now I know some quilter's love to make black and white quilts and they turn out so pretty but how boring would it be if that was it for choices of color. I'm so very, very glad that God didn't create this world in just black and white. Aren't you?

Before we moved here to Ohio most of my home was decorated in blue(mostly Americana). That has changed here but since my stash had so much red and blue in it a large portion of my quilting has been in those colors (until now, as I said - that has changed). Here are a few of my early quilting projects.

I could go on but I won't. Next come the wonderful tools we have as quilters. Another of my rotary cutters (who can have just one?), seam ripper (not one of favorite tools), and the brush to keep my sewing machine running smoothly and blue thread. There are so many shades of blue.

Next is a close up of a feed sack I bought at an antique store near here. I would love to begin collecting feed sacks to make quilts from but haven't gotten that far yet.
And last, but certainly not least, is a fun little knick-knack that sits atop my desk in the studio. It was a gift from my bff Claudia. I am a displaced Texan and she doesn't want me to forget it(as if I could). As they say, You can take the girl out of Texas but you can't take the Texas out of a girl. Or something like that!! Yee Haw!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Quilting!!
