Q43 – Quilt – MJ Blues


And this morning I’ve been able to get some images of one of our earlier quilts which was made about 2000. I called it MJ Blues. The technique and pattern is “Trip Around The World” and one of the first quilts we learned when we decided to get into this art form of quilting. From what I’ve discovered this pattern was very popular during the 1930s. It is called "Trip Around The World" as the center of the quilt is the “World” and the colors progress and issue from and around that center. MJ Blues is currently in a collection.

The dimensions are: Width – 49” (125 cms) and Length – 75” (191 cms). The colors are blue, (a statement of fact.) Thank you MJ for the pictures. Here are some close-ups:

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual grid presentation at the bottom of my Blog page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

Please let me know if anything on the Blogsite does to properly work, or do what it says it is supposed to do. I’m always working to make sure there is an ease of use.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of the available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please get in touch with me at our Quilts SB Etsy shop.
