Quilting Color Trend: Blue
Blue is the trendy color in fabric! And with so many hues and prints, you can add it to your quilt for a classic look, choose a variety for a modern look, or play with fun prints for a touch of whimsy.
Bolts of Blue
Mix your favorite blue prints in a scrappy wall hanging that will have you doing anything but singing the blues. Choosing prints with splashes of white keeps the strips in the tone-on-tone sashing from getting lost.
Classic Blue Heirloom Quilt
Pairing gray with blue instead of white with blue puts a twist on the classic two-color combination.
Little Blue Triangle-Squares
Make a table topper that's perfect for pairing with fine china. Sixty-four tiny triangle-squares make up the quilt center.
Jewel-tone blues, golds, and browns in subtle tone-on-tones create a rich wall hanging. Fussy-cutting striped fabric makes the Aster blocks pop.
Batik Strips Table Runner
Frame a panel of batik strips with bright piping for the center of a quick and easy table runner.
Add depth to a two-color quilt by using a variety of prints. Multiple blue and white prints in medium and light hues provide a subtle scrappiness.
Blue Ocean Waves
Serene aquas and cool blues rule in this tranquil wall hanging. Soft prints and large floral fabrics result in Ocean Waves blocks with less defined edges, adding to the relaxed feel of the piece.
Square-in-a-square blocks set on point are surrounded by a striking blue toile to create a timeless, treasured quilt.
Floral and Paisley Chain Quilt
Join blues and creams to form a quilt top with a chain design.
Create one-way movement by arranging Four-Patch units and setting squares in a diagonal Irish Chain pattern.
Batik Triangle Stars
Different blue background prints make the four star blocks pop. Careful fabric placement creates the illusion that they're different.
Blossoms and Borders Wall Hanging
Triangle-squares join in multiple borders to frame the appliquéd blossoms.
1930s Doll Quilt
Triangle-squares rotate this way and that to create the overall diamond pattern. A variety of feed sack prints are held together visually by the use of a single solid blue fabric.
On the Fly
Foundation-pieced dragonflies in 8-inch blocks flit this way and that across this vibrant quilt.
