That Blue….

You might wonder why I use this blue so often in my quilts. There is a story….

Not long after we arrived in Arizona, our first winter here, I was perusing the online ads. I found a lady selling four bolts of fabric. Three were parchment color and one was this aqua color. I hadn’t used much of this color before.

But since I had a bolt of it, I’ve reached for it again and again.

I will feel quite sad when it is all gone.

It has come in so handy and added a lot of life to quilts that may have gotten boring backgrounds otherwise.

I think when it’s gone, I will buy another bolt of a different solid color.

Have a great day!

    I’ve always loved aqua. Can you tell me which brand it is? Thanks.

  5. I remember purchasing a full bolt of fabric (on discount) for a quilt for my daughter, and thinking I was nuts. I used that fabric over and over, and then bought a half bolt of a solid gray, which has been a go-to in my stash. I would definitely buy another; they are handy to have!
