My first block for my blue & white "china" quilt

I love the freshness and crispness of blue and white, so when my churn dash quilt had enough blocks I had to think of something new.  So I chose 2 themes and will leave it up to my swap member each month to pick what they will make for me.  One of them I stole the idea from Beth, after seeing all the gorgeous Shabby chic blocks she was receiving.  The other is for my love of blue and white china.  I have a very small collection of this, and liked the idea of a blue and white quilt - with the theme based on looking like blue and white china.  I would like to thank Anne from Canada for her wonderful interpretation of this style - you certainly hit the nail on the head with this block.  So now I am on my way.  Thank you Anne.

Beautiful block - it does bring back memories of some beautiful Spode china I have seen.

I love the block as I am a great fan of the blue & white toile you have started me thinking. Cannot wait to see the finished product.

This is lovely and being a pom I too love the blue and white china that is so plentiful in the UK. Sue, make sure you partner with me some time for this quilt as I have the perfect piece of fabric for it!
