My Blue and Green Quilts

Blue is my  favorite color.  I would like to share a few of my blue and green quilts. The first quilt  is  blue and brown.  I love geometric shapes and enjoy making quilts with squares. Almost every quilt  I  made has had some kind of polka dot fabric in it.
This quilt has these cute blue and brown dot fabrics.
 I like the brown backing.
 This is another favorite quilt of mine...blue and green pinwheels. I added some yellow to the cool colors.
I have washed this quilt so many times and  it is getting softer with every wash.
Blue backing to match the blue pinwheels.
This is the very first quilt I made after I got my AccuQuilt Go cutter.  Once again I added some warm colors to the cool green Stretched Star Quilt.

Green and yellow flowery border and binding.
Another blue quilt with yellow.
This one got a touch of brown chenille next to the first border.
I love to use my scraps to make String Quilts.  This String Quilt has green sashings  and the same light green in the border.

I  ran out of the light green fabric and used a darker green for the binding.
Marjie pieced this blue table runner and I did the quilting for her.  We used my Go cutter to cut the Rob to Pay Perer Paul blocks. I hope you enjoy all the blue and green quilts.
Happy Quilting!

Blue is my favourite colour too, those quilts are just lovely.
Adding the chenille was a lovely touch!
I just bought some beautiful blue fabric for a quilt... but don't know what to do with it yet... what patterns/blocks to do it in. Suppose I will have to wait until I see just the right pattern.

Blue and Green pinwheels with a touch of yellow (that was an inspired idea) is my most favorite. And choosing a favorite was very hard as they're all exhilarating in they way you've used your colors. Lovely! Multi-talented Millie. :)

I like blue in quilts too. All shades of it. Brown is highest on my list for quilts so your blue & brown quilt is a hit with me.

Hey, Millie, how are you doing?
I have been trying to find a tutorial on finishing my quilt, block by block.
I do not have a long arm machine and don't have plans to buy one. But a while back I saw a program on TV where they finished each block then assembled the quilt. Do you know how this works. I would love your help, if you have the time.

Madame Samm said...

Millie, well I think you know I too love browns and blues...but the stretched star with the greens, yellow, well it defines for me, SUNSHINE...It is bright, warm, and shines of you...

liz said...

Great quilt show. My favourites are the first 2. I am so glad your post is back to normal for me. Still getting red gobble di gook on your last post but this time I can join in the oohs and aahs.
