Quilting with Blues

Today I thought I'd share a few pix of the latest quilt I made.  I used a number of fat quarters of different fabrics all in shades of blue.

Here's the whole finished quilt

I decided on a completely random design, first cutting all the fabrics into 5inch squares and putting all the squares into a bag, shaking them up to mix thoroughly.  Pulling out two squares at a time and stitching them together until all the squares were used.

This pic was taken during the construction process

Here's a close up shot of the quilting stitches.

I backed the quilt with snuggly fleece fabric in a shade of blue to match the front and bound the edges using more of one of the fabrics used for the squares.

Thanks for dropping by to check out today's project.
