I’m with you on the blue love! The center almost looks like corduroy (ribcord?) Beautiful! I always love the look of a quilt in a quilting hoop.
I think that when I use green . . . gray too - just makes me happy even though it's a 'cloudy' color!
Blue is a very close second to green for me. Just the combination of the two of them is so refreshing. I know you must be enjoying hand quilting at your leisure on such a pretty quilt.
