Blue and White

Have I ever told you my all time favorite color? Well, it's blue. I've always imagined having one of those "decorator magazine" bedrooms, with 3 or 4 blue and white quilts on the bed. Blue was Dad's favorite color too, and when he moved in with us we painted his bedroom blue. Wanted to make him feel like he was home. Well, Dad's been gone for awhile, and I'm thinking that the room is "too blue," if you know what I mean. I'm thinking that I'm going to paint the room white, and have blue accents. This way, when I get to changing my mind, as I'm prone to do, I can add some other colors. This year I've decided that I'm making a blue and white quilt for ME! I've got lots of blues in my stash, way more than are in the pic, (see below), and it's going to happen! I figure if I do a few of these units a week, by the end of the year I can make this happen.


I like using triangle papers. I have a CD called "Triangulations", and I can print out lots of different size templates for half square triangles. That's my fav way to make them. No trimming once they are cut. Accurate beyond a doubt. Yes, I have to tear away the paper, but I can do that while I'm waiting for blogger to upload my photos! :)
