Blue and White Quilts Inspired by Vintage and Classic Patchwork

In the world of quilts, there are certain color combinations that have irrefutable charm, always look fresh and weather the test of time. Blue and white is like that. It’s the color of sand and sea, white clouds on a blue sky, navy pinstripes on a white background. Fads may come and go, but this color combo is tried and true.
