Blue and White Challenge Quilt

We had a blue and white quilt challenge in my small quilt groups. Of course, I couldn't even think of not making something (blue is my favorite color).


Here's what inspired me: Some of you may remember my encounter with a mysterious coffee cups quilt awhile ago.  You can read about it here.  

Shortly after I wrote that post,  the mystery was solved.  I knew that a blue coffee cups quilt was in my future. This challenge was the perfect opportunity to achieve my goal.



I have to smile every time I look at it so it will surely end up hanging in my kitchen while I make my morning coffee, to perk me up. There will be a pattern available on my website soon so you can make your own. In YOUR favorite color.



Thanks to all of you who participated in this sweet little challenge! It was a joy to see the gorgeous quilts you made. Looking for quilting fun and inspiration? Join my group.

Kathy, Your little coffee cup quilt, in blue of course, is adorable! It was fun making a little Blue & White quilt. Loved looking at the B & W parade of quilts from all those talented quilters in the group.

Dear Tracy,
I discovered you while looking at Civil War dresses. I am a living history educator, an avid quilter and a seamstress. I read your post on needles and have this comment. Betweens are sooo small because they work with the rocking stitch used by old quilters. Although I mastered this stitch I don't love it and I use a longer "sharp" because it works better for me. Love your blog and love quilting! Edyne from Brook and River Schools.
