I recently finished piecing this quilt top. The pattern is called Navaho Blues. I found it in “The New Quilting and Patchwork Dictionary” by Rhoda Goldberg. I really like that book and have spent many hours looking through it and using it for quilt inspiration.
The blocks are 2 in X 4 in. The size of the quilt can be varied easily by using that 1-to-2 ratio of the basic block size. My quilt top measures 54 in by 76 in. It calls for six different blue colors ranging from light to dark. I think it would work up well in any color scheme and may try a red or green in the future. I plan to machine quilt it over the next several weeks. When I am done with it, I will be giving it to a friend.
