Here's another addition to my Blues Collection...it's a lap size quilt I named WATERCOLOR BLUES.  I made this quilt for a breast cancer patient about 5 years ago.  I had very little knowledge about this particular patient, just that she was in her young 40's and was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  Once again I chose Blues as my color theme and made this pattern from a positive and negative nine patch block.  Staying inside the same hue of color made the outcome very watercolor like.  It was a really wonderful surprise!

I am fairly positive at this point that my sisters are totally confused as to what I am talking about when I say the color theme I chose was very close in hue.  What this means is when I decided on blue as my color theme I then pull those blue fabrics that are very close in shading to each other...the only difference in them is the pattern or tonal image on the fabric.  My sister Michelle is saying...AH...yeah, RIGHT!  It is fair to say that Michelle is a little "color wheel challenged" and she may even be just a little "color blind" as well!  Even if she isn't, it sure is fun picking on her about it anyway!
