Indigo blues - monochromatic challenge

I love using blue in quilts so the challenge I gave myself was to also use a limited number of fabrics. I chose 3 and some embroidered panels from a friend. The uneven nine patch blocks were chosen because the some of the embroideries were too small to look right in a 9" square - I wanted to make them 8". 8" meant that the blocks were 2" 4" 2" across - I'm a bit lazy with fractional inch blocks.

This is part of the indigo challenge of the patch work Times.


  1. Very pretty! Makes me want to try making a limited fabric two color quilt.

  2. I love the cripsness of it. Love blue and white anyway.


I really enjoy the encouragement I get from feedback. As I am part of the process pledge I love to know if I am giving useful information... looking forward to hearing from you
