Bye Bye Blues

I'm happy to say that I've meet my goal of using up all those blue squares and finishing the top!
I've been distracted with family and movies but there was a few minutes between distractions to finish the top. 
Also I had time to piece a back with some of the smaller (imperfect) squares. 
I've had the beautiful blue toile (French General) on my shelf for awhile. I debated using it because if I used it I might regret it. It's stupid but that was what was going through my mind. I finally decided to use it, that's why I bought it. 
How I'm going to get a few quilting line through it. I'm not doing anything fancy, just straight line quilting. 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your encouragement. 
Take care, Brandie

That sure is pretty! Is this for you or for a gift? I love a good blue and white quilt! I have a bunch of blue prints I want to use.

Love it! Especially the stars. The toile fabric for the back is the perfect choice! Nice to have family near and a finished top. Life is good!

I love this, I did a scrappy blue/cream for my nephew and I hated to part with it. I love the big center. I'm glad you are doing all your medical upkeep. It's a struggle to look after ourselves when so much needs to be done, but I'm glad you are taking "brandie" time. All the best to you and your family in 2014
