A Scrap Quilt in Blue


This is my third scrap quilt this month and the most beautiful thing I've ever pieced, I think. The blue and green absolutely shimmer together.

The blue and green do compliment each other nicely. Pretty.

What a gorgeous quilt! I have always loved blue and green together - like the sky and land.

It's a summer day in quilt-form. Lovely!

You're on a real roll with these scrap quilts Anna and they're all stunning.

IT IS TRULY GORGEOUS, IT HAS A SPECIAL QUALITY THAT REMINDS ME OF THE PATCHWORK MY GRANNY MADE FOR ME AFTER I TAUGHT HER TO QUILT ALTHOUGH SHE WAS A SEAMSTRESS ALL OF HER LIFE ..SEE , SHE AND I CAME FORM ANOTHER COUNTRY AND WE DID NOT DISCOVER QUILTS UNTIL ABOUT THE EARLY 80S. I LEARNED WITH GEORGIA BONESTEEL LAP QUILTING ON PBS WHILE MY BABY WAS GROWING UP IN THE 80S, GRANNY GOT IT FROM ME AND SHE TOOK OFF AND MADE QUILTS LIKE YOURS, THEY ARE TRULY HEARTFELT, YOUR QUILTS.

I'm envisioning me and the kids on top of that quilt sharing a picnic lunch on a fine spring day! Thanks for the image...it's sleety and cold here as well!

Oh that is a lovely quilt. As for it being your best ever, you make such beautiful things I should think it would be hard to choose which is best.

Rhonda said...

Each of them are beautiful but this is my favorite. I love green and blue together!

Mod Girl said...

Oh yes! I love this one. Very nice work!

You're definitely a recycler, Anna. Gives me much to think about. The quilt is beautiful!

Kjersten said...

Love it! Beautiful work:)

I was still looking at it, and spotted the green polka dotted fabric which is the sash on the apron I bought from you! Then I spied a piece which reminds me of a blouse of my late mother's - I've finally begun to go through her clothing in earnest - and I suddenly realized how nice it would be to see these familiar patterns still around, and being useful.
Now when I go back to her closet, I will have a more cheerful attitude - and a plan!

Wish me luck!

Yes, it is very lovely! How do you plan to quilt it? Tie, machine, hand quilt? I have some photos to post this weekend of a scrap quilt my grandmother made me as a small girl...truly meant to be a throw doen on the ground picnic quilt. The mix of fabrics is wild.

gorgeous Anna. Gosh, you are sooo talented! I can crochet blankets, but no luck on quilting. Please tell Bella how awesome it is that she has gotten into cooking. I love to cook, and so love to see the things she has made. How lovely top eat her treats with a cup of tea! Maybe she has found her niche! Christina
Ps. If she would like good recipes, Im happy to oblige!

Oh, I wish I could sew quilt tops as quickly as you can! It took me over two years to get my first sons quilt finished (although I did it all by hand) and now I'm in the planning-almost-ready-to-cut-out stage for my second sons quilt, hopefully to be completed by his 2nd birthday.

This blue and green quilt top is truly splendid. I love it.

Hannah said...

I'm so jealous of all your beautiful quilts, I really wish I could quit.

Kristen said...

Beautiful! Now I'm truly inspired and even started picking out my fabric for my own scrap quilt.

Sally said...

Like a cool ocean breeze -- so refreshing!

gives me hope that spring is near :)

Loni said...

Anna,
Normally I lurk, in awe of your gorgeous photography and inspiring words, but I had to come out to compliment you hard work. Blue and green are my two favorite colors and this is really lovely! If I were you I wouldn't sell it but selfishly, I wish you would! :)

Abigail said...

A beautiful color combination and it looks wonderfully cozy!

Linda said...

I love the quilts you've been making, but this one is especially charming. There is something so homey and cozy about a patchwork quilt.
