My Day For Shades Of Blue

It is the first Sew It - Show It Challenge for 2023 and Carla's "Shades of Blue" is a perfect beginning for the chilly month of January. Thanks, Carla!


Way back in 2021 I had a sweet friend named Joan who brought me a huge stack of fabrics from the gazillion yards she had purchased from her favorite online store. I had used a little here and there, but this challenge definitely was perfect for them. Lots of shades of blue!


I love Sunburst Dresden's! 
This is a Missouri Star Quilt Company's version of one that can be found HERE.



For the flying geese, I used the one-seam method found HERE.
So easy!



Look who's sharing their "Shades of Blue" too!

  1. Good morning Carol. This sweet blue creation feels like spring, and the centre burst makes me feel like sunshune and breezes are right round the corner. Thanks

  13. Fabulous! I love your blues and the sunburst effect. I hadn't seen the one seam FG, but I think I'll stick with Eleanor. LOL FG makes a great border for this Dresden.
