An indigo quilt; unusual pattern.
This concentric honeycomb was quite inexpensive, but one fabric didn't hold up, so an entire round would need replacing. Great colors, though.
Indigo...sigh.
This tumbling blocks could be a beauty. The light machine quilting just detracts from the wonderful fabrics. Hopefully, someone will remove it and finish it - but not me, I have enough projects!
I've been working on a project that was started long ago from exchange hsts, and 4 patchs. I will share this when it gets further along. I've been sewing "parts" to make more blocks. Then, I can just work with the parts, and the blocks will sew up rather quickly.

I love the block design in the indigo and white quilt.

Love that first quilt as it has a fun and simple design that looks more complex.

Yes, the top quilt is beautiful and I love the pattern. I would love to see this pattern done in reds & white.

Beautiful quilts. Just wondering about the honeycomb quilt--is the row that needs replacing close enough to the edge that the quilt could just be cut down a little? Just curious. : )

I'm drawn to those indigo fabrics, too. Ever since a friend sent some from Japan I've been thinking about a quilt...just need to find some here or order online. Do you know of a good source? Thanks! Heather

So many of us are drawn to those old indigo prints. I love the quilt peeking out from under the indigo rail fence, red stars on an indigo background. Sweet.

hi Jan, thankyou so much for your kind comment about my old dog. I'm loving the photos, in particular the blue quilt.

I LOVE that indigo and blue! I know red and blue is the popular thing, but blue is so calming, and one of my favorite colors.

Oh, my, I do love that first quilt, the indigo and white--I don't know that I've ever noticed that pattern in other quilts.
