Ben's Blues

I am working on a new quilt for my son Ben and his wife Stephanie, They wanted something blue, this is a simple quilt design but uses lots of medium and dark navy blues. I cut this today using my Alto's quilt cut system. Most of my family and friends know what a difficult time I have cutting fabric straight, and when I saw this nifty cutter it meant I could quilt! I have had mine for 5 years now and I really like it. Their site has an online demo so I won't bother making one-

I am going to use a "streak of lightning" set for my blocks like my sister Jess did-- pictured here on our family quilt gallery website.
Jess made her in shades of green. These half triangle squares work up quickly and are so effective. My darks are darker than pictured and my medium blues are darker too. I cut for 3 hours this afternoon.
