I really love blues... I have heard that seeing the color blue causes the body to produce chemicals that have calming effects on a person. Maybe that is why I love blues so much.
I took this photo on my Mom's blue sofa. I made this quilt with the idea that I would use it as a table topper, but my Mom likes it on the back of her sofa. Both Mom and I love blues. The quilt could be used as a pillow topper on the head of a bed. It could be a wall hanging too. I just feel so calm and relaxed about it, that I would just use it anywhere!
I finished the binding last night here at my Mom's house. I took the final pictures this morning. Gabby and Toby wanted to poise with the quilt too!
I took pictures of all the steps from start to finish. I will post them this week while I am here with my Mom's house. I will explain the construction process. You may want to make the delightful floating lilies, so I will share it.
Update: Post about making the lilies.
Another photo of Gabby and Toby.
I video tapped the quilting of one of the blue lily flowers. It is about a 2 minutes long video.
What's your favorite color?
Some of the blue fabrics are from Chris' Dye Candy Fabrics.
