Blue and White Quilt

I started this quilt years ago. YEARS. I had the top done, and left it out in my mess...and came downstairs and someone (whichever child was young enough at the time) had CUT it. 
Discouraged, I folded it up and put it away...
for years. 

Finally, for Christmas of 2008, I brought it out, cut off the parts that had been cut into, and made a smaller throw size for my mom.

I love the simplicity of the blue and white. I quilted the heck out of it, which at the time of quilting it (on my own little machine) it looks horrible. All the tucks and puffs and shifted seams... UG!

But washed, it is so wrinkled and cute (not looking too closely)!

Sometimes I wish I didn't give almost every quilt I make away!  :)


  1. I love it! I always love simplicity and blue and white anything. This is gorgeous!

  2. It's so beautiful. I need to start taking lessons from you!
