Winter Blues Blog Hop!

When I joined the hop I already had a blue project in the works. I would have loved to have done something more creative, but this is a Hospice quilt and it’s the first one for 2020.  Starting off the year with a finished Hospice quilt is a good way to get this year’s ministry going!

The Hospice quilts are backed with fleece – cozy, warm and soft!

I really like variations of blue fabrics and have made several quilts with blue – see?…

  1. I love sewing with blues. Also enjoy sewing with purples. Honestly, I enjoy sewing with most colors, except I don’t like using murky browns and murky greens. I like your quilts. They are pretty.

  2. Chasing away the winter blues making a blue quilt for hospice is so heartwarming. It’s a beauty! Please don’t add me to your draw. I’m in Canada. Just wanted to say thank you for being part of the hop. 😄 Carol

  5. As a matter of fact, I sew with a lot of blue, too! I like your quilt, and it is so lovely for hospice. I just found out tonight that a friend will be going to hospice with stage 4 brain cancer. I hope they have lovely quilts like this, too.

  9. Love all your variation of blue quilts. I have more blue scraps and strings in my stash so I must sew with blue more than other colors but I love mixing blue, purple and green. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Beautiful. The hospice quilt is my favorite, i love the colors. I really dont have a favorite color to sew with but I do prefer to make quilts with earth tones.

  12. This is a beautiful quilt and will be loved by the dear one who receives it. Love the idea that it has a fleece backing. All of your “blue” work is amazing. The only color I don’t work with unless I have to is brown.

  19. Your blue quilts are beautiful! Sewing in the winter is my best time for sitting behind the machine when the outdoors isn’t calling for weeds to be pulled in the garden and the lawn doesn’t need mowing. I love sewing with purples! I have a good stash of them and try to put a bit of purple in everything I sew!

  20. First off, I’m so jealous that you have a clothesline. Hubby ripped mine down years ago by driving under it with his truck and never put it back up. ;-( Your hospice quilts are such a labor of love and comfort for someone’s last days. Bless you. I also love using fleece on the backs of my quilts. It makes them so warm and lightweight. You will find purple and lime greens in my stash mostly.

    it whenever I can.

  22. Your hospice quilt is lovely and will definitely be loved by the recipient!! All of the quilts are beautiful and I may just have to try a few of those designs!! My dad is on hospice, so it is near and dear to my heart!! Teal is my favorite color to work with right now.

  23. You are so generous – quilting for Hospice. What a great quilt though I love all the blue projects. My favorite color is pink with blue running a close second. What I’ve noticed lately when pulling blues from my stash, is that I don’t have a good variety of blues. Of my, what’s a quilter to do but…buy some!

  24. Wonderful quilt for hospice! Especially snuggly with the fleece backing to keep someone warm. I like to sew with blues and pinks. {not necessarily together}

    My color used to be shades of red. But then a couple of years ago, I surveyed my stash and found I must really like blue instead! Guess a girl can always change her mind 🙂

  26. I usually say I don’t have a favorite color because I love scrappy quilts. That is very true, but I am going to say Red because I have a red works UFO.

  27. Hello! This quilt is just so pretty and I can only imagine how cuddly it feels with that nice backing. Someone in hospice will really enjoy and feel all the love you’ve sewn into it. I love to sew with anything bright – red, orange, yellow, green . . . all of them. ~smile~ Roseanne

  28. I Love RED! But, I must admit your blue quilts are terrific! I’m certain your hospice quilt will be so well received. That is so thoughtful of you & many thanks for doing that, as well as sharing your inspiration & creativity with us all.

  31. All of your blue quilts are so pretty. Great sewing for hospice as well. I love to sew with green, my favorite color, It just does not always fit every project though.

  34. What a beautiful way to start the year. Your giving heart is amazing and that quilt is too. I love teal and seem to go to it a lot. Thank you for joining the Winter Blues Blog Hop!

  35. If I were to look at my stash, it would probably be blue. I love your quilt and I don’t think you should “apologize” for its classic style. That quilt will bring so much comfort to a patient, a family, and will also warm the hearts of caregivers and visitors. That is what matters.

  47. Lovely quilt! I’m sure that the recipient will love to snuggle up in it. I seem to end up sewing blue quilts more than anything else, even though purple is my favorite color. Go figure!

  49. I love how a postage stamp quilt looks no matter if set in one hue (any shade of blue has to be perfect) and you can change up with setting and color swaps.
