Here is Blue Discovery:
|up-close shot - Quilted by Clara Owen|
After piecing the front with green sashing - because I thought it would make all of my other prints pop - my father promptly told me he hated the green. I told him it was good it wasn't for him. However, I did choose only blues for the backing. I purchased all of the fabrics from JoAnn's. It was fun making my first lattice quilt.
I have always referred to this quilt as my "blue quilt" because all of the blocks are blue, or have nice blues in them. The name of the quilt came from both that and the book I was listening to while cutting and piecing the front. The book is titled "A Discovery of Witches." Not my typical read, but oh MY, it was fabulous. This book was so good that I was sad when it was over and am too scared to read the second book since the third (and final book) has not been completed. Sad, right?
Anyway, Blue Discovery was born.
A special thanks to my photo helper - Asher (nephew), who helped me layout the quilt and take the photos.
Can't wait to wash/dry and lay this quilt out on my bed!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
