One Bajillion Blue

I thought I had already taken pictures of, and posted this....but I didn't!  So Sam (click her name to check out her blog, Diary of a Mad Fabriholic), this one's for you!

I used one single block (I know, I had 100 to choose from and I only chose one, lol) from Tula Pink's 100 Modern Quilt Blocks

This wonderful book that I need to make more blocks from

I chose Number 77, because I thought it would be neat to make a larger block from 4 of these blocks.

I wanted to alternate lights and darks to get an optical illusion...And I needed to get rid of blue scraps.  So I chose 50 light blues, and 50 dark blues and when to town.  There are only 100 different blues here, but after all that picking, and cutting, and piecing, and pinning, and pressing, and assembling....it might as well have been one bajillion.  Hence, one bajillion blue.  

Right now the quilt is on display in the shop as a sample for the book.  The walls are pretty high (very tall ceiling) so from down here I know the picture isn't all that great....but you get the idea :-)  And no, your eyes aren't deceiving you....it does lack a binding. 


  1. Thank you for putting this up so i could see it- I'm sorry it took me so long to get back around to it. (Summer seems to be eating away at my computer time, in a good way...) It's really lovely- and wow, that's a lot of blue scraps!!

    1. Hey no worries! Summer is a great excuse to get away from the computer...we have a few nice days coming up here too so I'll be doing the same :-)


I welcome all comments and constructive criticism! All I ask is that you keep it clean and keep it kind.
