The Blue Toile quilt. Years ago I bought a French blue toile fabric, not sure, but I think it is something about Christopher Columbus's arrival in America. Would someone know? It is made up from various blue reproduction fabrics, the background is the Queen Victoria Jubilee. Hexagons were chosen and fussy cut from blue fabrics although many contain other colours with the blues.No pattern available.
