Blue Streak


This little quilt has motion, don't you think?

Four Lemoyne star blocks in blue paisley and plaid are framed with blue dots, adding plaid for the outside border. Blue Streak is 32” square, bound and backed with a blue ticking stripe. It's quilted with cream thread in a serpentine stitch.

Accuquilt dies made quick work of cutting and sewing, so I had time to whip up a few small mats in different blocks to coordinate the look. Another pretty kitchen set done!



She's normally a quiet person,
but she'll talk a blue streak about sewing,
if you let her.

By the way, I entered a new quilt block design in Accuquilt's contest.  If you'd like to vote, link hereThanks.
