Mr. Blue Sky


Mr. Blue Sky
July 2015

The center section is based off of a standard 16-patch block. I played with the color saturation, making half of each block light blue and half dark blue, with the color change occurring on the diagonal. I also played around with the arrangement of the blocks. It was amazing to see how with a simple rotation of each block, the entire quilt shifted to read either as light or dark blue. I preferred it “reading” as dark blue.

The fabrics were all from my scrap bin, from too many past projects to give mention to here! If you skim through my other quilts, many of the fabrics I used in Mr. Blue Sky will show up. And, while you’re looking through my other quilts, here is a fun song to listen to:

I donated this quanket to the County of Ventura, Children & Family Services, via the Children’s Services Auxiliary of Ventura County, in July 2015.
