Blue and white has always been a classic combination. My inspiration was the clouds slowly drifting across the deep blue sky in the summer of 2004. I was sitting in the yard while my kids were on the playground closeby, relaxing in a lawn chair, just enjoying the day. Of course I started to think about what a great quilt blue and white would make. But what pattern? Stars, of course, they are my favorite. So I picked a few and started piecing. Some by hand (the hard ones just for fun), and then my online guild started a star BOM. Most ladies did a montly theme, but I continued the blue and white.
I played with setting in EQ5 and my dh liked this one the best. It will grace our bed, and brighten up the room. I will have the local long armer quilt it maybe with light blue thread. I will take it there on Tues (closed on Mon) and discuss it with her.
BTW, the cutie helping hold the quilt is my ds, 4.
