Classic Blue Heirloom Quilt

Pairing gray with blue instead of white with blue puts a twist on the classic two-color combination. Fussy-cutting an ikat print for the outer border gives the appearance of more intricate piecing without the additional work—perfect when you want to save time but not scrimp on style! Fabrics are from the Heirloom collection by Dear Stella.
