Project Blue & White


I love the crisp contrast of white and navy blue . . .


. . . and how a soft blue looks like it is emerging from the field of white.



Here is my first blue and white project: a pair of potholders, from a repurposed tablecloth. It seems too easy to do a blue and white sewing project -- but, really, isn't it another way to get in touch with color? Like doing an inspiration board or collage/journal page -- getting involved with color. And it helps hone my sewing skills. (And convinces me I really really need a walking foot before I tackle any larger-scale quilting job.)

More blue and white (I hope) before month's end.

Oh, the potholders look wonderful, just like delft tiles! Love your photos, too.

Oh now I am inspired, I already have Blue & white things in my kitchen but some how my other colors are sneaking in.. So today I am going to re organize and bring back the original theme I love crisp white & blue. Thank you for posting.

Katie,
Blue is just , well blue isn't it. Looks so pretty. Love the way the potholders came out. Now I wouldn't want to use them, just look at them. Nice work.

Hello ~ Dropping by from your link on Year of Color blog. Your re-purposed tablecloth pot holders are just perfect. They DO look like delft tiles. It always makes me feel good to re-use something old and then it feels like its brand-new again!

I love the picture of your mug on the blue and white background! I'm very much into photography and enjoy seeing other people compositions. I recently joined MJ's and love all the creative gals out there.
