Beating the Blues

A while back I started Victoria's inspiration challenge.  I began with the word DREAM and my blue scraps.  I had just  finished the book Dream when Your Feeling Blue by Elizabeth Berg.  So that became the theme for my quilt.  Not to mention I really like the song Dream.  Well this project sat for a while while other things came to the for front.
 But the other day I needed some mindless sewing so I started making this wonky log cabin blocks.  And that got me thinking I really need to get going on this quilt.  So I added the words WHEN YOUR FEELING.  I'm still debating whether I will do the word BLUE or just let the color of the quilt take care of that.  Suggestions are welcome.
 Then after making these star blocks for a bee I'm in I decided my blue quilt needed a few and made these. 
 I see this quilt getting much bigger.  Heaven knows I have enough blue scraps to make that happen.

  1. I LIKE it! Maybe add an ellipsis, then the log cabin blocks and the stars and then way far away in the corner add the word "blue."

    ps--My Harvest Sky top is finished. *happy dance*

  6. I kind of like the ambiguousness (is it a word?) of leaving the actual blue off. then some may catch that it's "blue" and some may just use the part of dreaming when you are feeling. Very deep my dear!!! ;-)

  7. Isn't it great to see the piece come to life as more ideas come into the dream? Love your blues.

  8. You could put Blue on the back of the quilt in some quiet little place or quilt it with the word blue so that it isn't too obvious....!?

    I think you need to make people work a bit - keeps them thinking! But thanks for letting me know!

  9. When I first looked at your quilt I thought I actually saw the word 'blue'. Crazy, eh? Great idea for a quilt!

  10. Loving it. I think I would add Blue just for those of us that are pretty dense...
