Cool Breezes

I started another quilt.  And I haven’t even finished A Breath of Avignon or China Blue.  This is so unlike me.  I usually finish a quilt before I start a new one.  Luckily though, I am at the hand stitching the binding stage for A Breath of Avignon and China Blue, so that makes for a good tv watching activity.

Cool Breezes has lovely blues, lavenders, grays, and sage greens.  It’s very calming and serene.  It is basted, quilted, and the binding is attached to the front of the quilt.

Now onto hand stitching the bindings…

Blue is Hard

I figured that blue would be an easy color to match.  I have 2 bindings for quilts that are both blue, but different shades.  I took samples of the binding into the quilt shop with me to find thread to match.  I don’t think I’ve ever had such a difficult time matching thread.  There were so many blues, but none that were perfect.  Instead of hunting for the perfect match at multiple quilt shops, I picked those that matched the best.

I seriously never thought finding the right color blue thread would be so hard!
