Color Variations Make This Blue Quilt Sparkle
Create Your Own Appealing Color Variation!
What started out as a blue quilt was given depth and sparkle by adding teal and aqua, along with little pops of red. This is a marvelous example of how color choices can turn a nice quilt into a sensational one.
The quilt was made from scraps and string-pieced. The designer used a paper foundation for the blocks, although a lightweight fabric would mean not having paper to remove.
While exact instructions are not provided, there is a block template. It won’t be hard to create a similar quilt. The finished blocks are 7″ square and set in a 10 x 10 grid.
Notice the white strip in each block that looks like sashing when the blocks are combined. It’s your choice whether or not to do the same.
The completed quilt, made by Rose from Threadbare Creations, is 70″ square.
