Sunday Quilt Inspiration: B L U E

Dulux has also developed a beautiful tonal colour palette to complement 2017’s Colour of the Year, featuring a spectrum of blues and blue-hue tones.I've been busy sewing blue scraps together to make small blocks of 4" and 6" squares. Tomorrow, if there's time, I'll begin making some 8" squares, but I also have to take Jolie to Lafayette for new ballet shoes and then to JoAnn Fabrics for enough black backing to finish the Harley Davidson quilt. I thought I could do it using pieces from the stash, but no. It can't be done. There's just not enough black solid, even if I were to piece together all of what I have.

Since I was playing with blue scraps, I thought it might be nice to look for some inspiration for those blocks. Here's what I found.
