Blue Argyle

Today I went to help a friend put together some rows in this Blue Argyle quilt.


There is a story behind this quilt...

One summer (I think it was two years ago) I went through my scraps and decided to cut the scraps into pieces that would eventually make quilts.  That is how I had the fabric ready for the Starburst Quilt last year.  


 I also cut a lot of blue squares and strips with the hope of making a Blue Argyle quilt sometime in the future.

One day a friend told me that she was thinking of making a quilt for one of the missionaries from our church - and that the missionary had said that blue was one of her favorite colors.

So... I pulled out my box containing the pre-cut quilt and asked if that would work.

My friend bagged up groups of blocks and distributed them to folks in our Quilting Bee. They returned the block with a cross sewn into the middle of the block.

I got the call that the rows were going together - and I went to help pin rows and iron squares.  We actually finished 4 other rows that are not yet attached..  Not many to go!

I think it's going to be beautiful!!!



More pictures to follow as we finish.
