Thanks for stopping by for Emily’s Scrap Republic Book Tour!

You didn’t know you were coming to the Blue Nickel on a tour day?? Oh then it is your lucky day…there’s a fun little interview….a little delving into the book…and a whole lotta blue pictures….AND a WHOPPER of a prize offering….I mean seriously….FIVE prizes to FIVE people! That rocks!!

Emily wanted all of the stops along the tour to reflect a particular color as the book is such a celebration of color!  I tried to get my favorite color which is red, but for some reason I was forced into getting blue….probably something to do with branding and keeping me in line, but whatever!  🙂  🙂

So I have been looking for my favorite blue stuff, and the good thing is that like Emily, I also love abundant color and therefore had no problem finding a lot of blue around here…as evidenced throughout this post..

I also thought it would be fun to give Emily a mini “blue” interview about …well..blueness….

What 3 songs make you Bluer than Blue??

  • – Red Rain
  • – We All Live in a Yellow Submarine
  • – Black Hole Sun

and here’s the song that inspired that question  😉

<object style=”height: 390px; width: 640px”><param name=”movie” value=”″><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”><param name=”allowScriptAccess” value=”always”><embed src=”″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowfullscreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” width=”640″ height=”360″></object>



What 3 things make you as Happy as Blue Skies?

  • – grey skies
  • – finishing up a big project
  • – and seeing happy little smilie faces belonging to Maeve & Liam

Pick one of these three: Blueberry shake, Blueberry muffin, Blueberry pancakes…

None of the above. Blueberries are the worst things to ever grow on a plant. Strawberries on the other hand…

(we obviously have a rule breaker here!)


Two truths and a lie:

  • — Actively sought out grizzly bears (to photograph) on our honeymoon
  • — Sewing machine shaped tattoo on my lower back
  • — Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles

Okay….and I should talk about the book too, huh?  Simply put….buy it! That is if you love color and have a ton of scraps and love good instructions and don’t like to toss out even the tiniest bit of THAT favorite print, or THAT one, or THAT one either.  You can use them all!!

What’s more even if you don’t have a ton of scraps, each of the scrappy quilts shown has an alternate version that you can use for that incredible fat quarter pack you bought back in 2009 but can’t figure out what you want to do with it.  You know the one I am talking about.  If you get this book, you can finally get some use out of that pack AND be on your way to the obsessive compulsive hoarder collector of a great start on the scrappier versions!

Are you ready for the prizes? Check it out!

  • – Scrap Republic from C&T Publishing — printed version for US residents, PDF for international

  • – Scrap Republic Eco Tote from C&T Publishing — US residents only

  • – Bag o’ Scraps from Robert Kaufman — US and International

All you need to do is tell me about your favorite blue, however you interpret that! oh, and try to guess what Emily’s lie is from above.  I will let you know when I announce the winners next week!

And in case you missed the schedule, here you go…remember this prize package is at EVERY stop of the tour! is that incredible or what?!  Tomorrow my friend John has a cool group…Indigo, Black, Brown, Grey……hhhhmmm that sounds like an awesome quilt, doesn’t it?

  • My favourite blue is sky blue…there is nothing better than a sky without a cloud in it! Takes my breath away every time!

    Oh and I think the lie is Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles :o)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Maggie barber


    Cornflower blue . . . And the tattoo!?

    October 9, 2011 at 3:17 am
  • Right now I’d have to say my favorite blue is blue skies. We have been having extraordinary amount of rain for our area and it’s been so nice to have 2 days of blue skies and sunshine!
    And I think the lie is the blue toenail polish.

    October 9, 2011 at 3:50 am
  • My favourite blue is probably a bit boring but it would be the colour of the sea. I live in country Australia and I love summer time when I can take a holiday by the sea, going fishing and just watching the waves. And I think the lie is the sparkly toe nail varnish…don’t know why, it just doesn’t seem to fit.

    October 9, 2011 at 3:58 am
  • Melissa


    My favorite blue is all the different blues in nature – the incredible range of blue skies, flowers, bugs, etc.

    I’m going to guess the lie is the tattoo.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    October 9, 2011 at 4:23 am
  • LOVE all your blue ‘stuff’ …. and I have Fiesta too… mine is yellow and aqua!… oh.. and some red.

    what a fun Hop Emily invited us on.. love your post!

    Isn’t Fiestaware the most awesome stuff ever!! I loved your Yellow post too Pat!!

    October 9, 2011 at 4:37 am
  • Jodi R


    My favourite Blue… that is hard because I love blue but I would have to go the bright blue of a clear spring sky, you know those days when you look at the sky and go “wow, is it always that colour?”

    As for Truth and Lie I am going to have to guess it is the toenail polish : )
    I am an Australian follower.

    October 9, 2011 at 4:48 am
  • I’m thinking Emily didn’t hunt any Grizzley bear on her honeymoon.

    My favorite blue is periwinkle. It has just a touch of purple to it which is my favorite color.

    Thank you for a chance to win.

    October 9, 2011 at 4:50 am
  • Kathe


    I love all blues but I think a cobalt blue would be my favorite (with white – smashing). After your interview and the book, I would not be able to tell which would be a lie but it might be the tattoo as I don’t think she would have the patience to sit or lay there without doing something. Of course that could also apply to searching for the grizzleys. Thanks.

    October 9, 2011 at 4:53 am
  • Joyce Mitchell


    My favorite blue is Carolina Blue (go Tarheels!). Hope I win. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    October 9, 2011 at 4:54 am
  • i guess toenail polish as the false answer.
    favorite blue thing…my husband’s blue eyes. i was so excited to think our children would have his blue eyes, but it was not the case….they have their own lovely shades of green and brown!!

    October 9, 2011 at 4:57 am
  • Cloud Mom


    I love the color teal. I added chartreuse and brown to teal when I updated my bathroom this summer.

    October 9, 2011 at 5:02 am
  • Wendy


    Cobalt blue and a deep blue-purple. Just love the depth of these colours
    I think number 2 – the tattoo – is the lie

    October 9, 2011 at 5:12 am
  • Annmarie


    The ocean of course! Blues of all shades. Well sometimes green sneaks in there but I;m lovin all the blues in the ocean. As for lies, the nail polish is just weird enuf to be true so I’m going with the tattoo as the lie! Thanks for the fun….

    October 9, 2011 at 5:32 am
  • I would say the lie is the toenail polish color.

    As for my favorite blue, I would have to say the color of the ocean blue, whatever that is. 🙂

    October 9, 2011 at 5:36 am
  • KrisD


    Blue is my favorite color but there are so many other colors that I like, too! Today, my favorite shade of blue would be turquoise. I went on a fund raiser bike ride for an Extreme Makeover Home Edition recipient yesterday and there was the coolest turquoise bike in the ride. Very cool looking bike but I’m sure I couldn’t get my husband to buy a bike in that color so I’ll have to settle for turquoise fabric instead.

    I’d say the toenail polish is the lie.

    October 9, 2011 at 5:45 am
  • It has to be Indigo Blue, love it in all quilts!
    The lie….the grizzly bear photo attempt?

    October 9, 2011 at 6:14 am
  • Melody


    The book sounds awesome. Congrats to Emily – although there’s just something wrong with that whole no blueberries thing!

    October 9, 2011 at 6:25 am
  • I’m not really a blue person but I love cobalt blue glassware. I think the toe nail polish is a fib. Thanks

    October 9, 2011 at 6:27 am
  • I love blue, in all shapes, colors and forms. It is my absolute favorite color! I don’t know that I could actually pick one blue thing that I love more than any other! I’m going to guess that Emily’s lie is the sewing machine shaped tattoo. I know, it probably seems more likely that she would have a tattoo before she would seek out grizzly bears, but I’m going to guess that it’s a trick question!

    October 9, 2011 at 6:31 am
  • Mimi


    I love listening to blues music… it goes deep. Thanks for the write up… I wasn’t sure about the lie… I’ll bet it’s about the nail polish.

    October 9, 2011 at 6:50 am
  • My favorite blue is the big blue sky over endless prairie–we don’t have LANDscapes in the Midwest, we have SKYscapes–incredible skyscapes!

    I think the lie is the sewing machine tattoo.


    October 9, 2011 at 6:51 am
  • My favorite blue is Carolina Blue and I think the lie is #3: favorite toe nail polish~blue with sparkles.

    October 9, 2011 at 7:00 am
  • I am really bad at this – 0 success rate – I guess the sewing machine tatoo is the lie. Fingers crossed …
    Periwinkle blue, with that unmistakable purple tinge, is my current favorite. I love blue and yellow quilts. Thanks for a wonderful opportunity to win this book. Fingers still crossed. Judy C

  • anna


    the first finished quilt ever made was blue and gray for my oldest boy oh about 14 years or more ago, sadley i did not photograph it, it i must say WAS a good looking quilt, and i say WAS cause he washed it so much the colors are faded. so i am working on another for him, of course the color will be blue

    October 9, 2011 at 7:13 am
  • Monica


    Oooooohhhhhh! I get to be first?!?! so my guess I’d she doesn’t have a sewing machine tattoo. And my favorite shade of blue?….that’s a tough one cause it changes. Right now Im in love with periwinkle.

    October 9, 2011 at 7:16 am
  • sarah p


    Sorry but I think blueberries are the best blue thing. My next favorite blue would have to be the blue ocean. I think the lie is the sewing machine tattoo. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Valerie


    Love this blog! Just found it via the blog hop, but I’m adding it to my Reader! I LOVE blue … never found a shade I didn’t like! Don’t judge, but I have blue counter tops in my kitchen!!!!!! And my favorite college football team: why, of course: Michigan Wolverines! GO BLUE! As for the 2 truths and a lie: I have to go with the sewing machine tattoo. If that’s not a lie, I’d like to see it! 🙂 Thanks for the give away!!

    October 9, 2011 at 7:43 am
  • Claudia


    My favorite blue is French Blue.” I have some old Bauer dishes on display and every time I sew something new for the kitchen (or dining room, or living room) I seem to use blues to show off my prized French Blue pottery.

    The lie? Duh. I’ve seen the tat and it isn’t a sewing machine. It’s just your run of the mill lower back tat.

    October 9, 2011 at 7:55 am
  • sorry to hear you don’t like blueberries. they are one of my favorite blue things. Another favorite is our Carolina Blue sky.
    I think the tattoo is the lie.

    October 9, 2011 at 8:20 am
  • roccagal


    I think that she does not like blue sparkly polish! thanks for the giveaway!!!

    October 9, 2011 at 8:24 am
  • Blue is my favorite color to decorate with, along with yellow. That color combination sprinkled through my house makes me warm and happy inside. It reminds me of the sun and sky everywhere I look. Not to mention beeeautiful yellow flowers framed on the blue sky. Makes me feel like scrap quilting every. single. time. Lie would be: mercy, the tatoo?

    October 9, 2011 at 8:26 am
  • Great post – love the collection of blue things! My favorite blue happened one afternoon on a cruise back from Lanai to Maui – the ocean was this incredible bluish-green “Laguna Blue” from Ceramcoat paints. Just incredible…..I think its the toenail polish – the tattoo is too crazy to be actually true!

    October 9, 2011 at 8:30 am
  • My favorite blue is the blue clear sky where you can see forever! Loved your post!
    I can’t imagine anyone chasing grizzly bears for a picture so that’s the one I guess as a lie!
    Thanks for sharing and a great giveaway!

    October 9, 2011 at 8:31 am
  • Linda E in AZ


    Turquoise is my favorite blue (spent 30 years in the “Land of Enchantment” – New Mexico.
    Somehow I don’t think Emily had to force you into blue.

    October 9, 2011 at 8:36 am
  • I love turquoise. I love wearing the color in jewelry and my clothes. I also love the blue sky over South Dakota and Montana.

    October 9, 2011 at 8:55 am
  • Not really fond of blue at all, but having to pick one I’d probably say either a very gray blue or a deep navy. Does teal count? Teal’s ok. I’m thinking the nail polish is probably the not true.

    October 9, 2011 at 8:57 am
  • My favorite blue is turquoise and/or aqua. I think the lie is
    —Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles. That would be my lie, too.

    October 9, 2011 at 9:04 am
  • Kylie Carlson


    I love blue skies since I live in the Pacific Northwest where they are a special treat. And I think the grizzly bears are the lie.

    October 9, 2011 at 9:18 am
  • My favorite blue is the color of my Mom’s eyes. She is ninety-one and has the clearest, pale blue eyes ever! And for the lie…I would guess —Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles!!

    October 9, 2011 at 9:24 am
  • Carolina Blue Skies – my favorite. Judy C

    October 9, 2011 at 9:24 am
  • Dawn


    I made a blue and white quilt a couple of years ago. It has toile, florals and some fabric from Holland. It. Always makes me smile! I think the lie is the sparkly toenail polish.

    October 9, 2011 at 9:38 am
  • Julie


    my favorite blue is aqua, yum!.
    And the lie? mmm, well it might be the nail polish? i guess we’ll see.

    October 9, 2011 at 9:41 am
  • kathy h


    My favorite shade of blue is navy blue, I think it goes well with so many other colors. I think Emily’s lie is the sewing machine tatoo.

    October 9, 2011 at 9:42 am
  • Cindy Dickinson


    My favorite blue is turquoise followed closely by royal blue. I think she is lying about the tattoo. I have to have this book. Waiting to buy it just in case I might win a copy!

    October 9, 2011 at 9:58 am
  • My favorite blue has to be the blue in my Siberian Huskies’ eyes. So deep and all-knowing.
    I’m going for the sewing machine tattoo.
    Great post! I love blue!

    October 9, 2011 at 10:04 am
  • My favorite blue is a calm, blue lake – ready to be skiied upon! We sold our ski boat last summer to off-set the fact we had a new baby boy… so no skiing for us this year, but soon – as in the next 5 years 🙂
    My 2nd favorite blue – the DS Quilts fabric in the blue color-way… so yummy!!!

    Thanks so much!

    October 9, 2011 at 10:10 am
  • The blue of my husband’s eyes…mine are dark brown and the kids ended up hazel…I can live with that!

    I think she DOES like blueberries!;)

    October 9, 2011 at 10:11 am
  • Barb Colvin


    Blues are so awesome! Periwinkle blue, royal blue, aqua and my fav: turquoise. The lie? I’ll go with the sewing machine tattoo on lower back.

    October 9, 2011 at 10:19 am
  • DianeY


    Favorite blue? – the color of the shallow water when you look down at the ocean here in Hawaii – a really cool turquoise. I think the lie is about the toenail polish, but only because it’s the most believable truth! And why isn’t your name Red Nickel Studio if that’s your favorite color?

    The Blue Nickel vs. Red Nickel story? Well it is a long story that involves an actual blue nickel that I found years ago, and I thought it sounded like a great spot to hang out….”catch up with you later at the Blue Nickel” “see you at the Blue Nickel” that sort of thing. The funny thing is, I found that same nickel (yes, I saved it) and it is red on the other side…but the Red Nickel just didn’t flow for me, you know?

    October 9, 2011 at 10:24 am
  • My favorite blue is robin’s egg blue. I remember finding the ‘post-hatched’ shells when I was little and marveling at how nature could make such a beautiful color! I think the lie may have been that grey skies make her happy as blue skies. They have the opposite effect on me! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

    October 9, 2011 at 10:25 am
  • Indigo, Turquoise, Aquamarine, Prussian Blue. Hey, I like blueberries! I’m thinking the tattoo is not true. My favorite color is red, too.

    October 9, 2011 at 10:33 am
  • Anne


    Favorite blues have to be the beautiful shades of the Caribbean sea at Trunk Bay. I’d go back there in a heartbeat. Hmmm
    Lie…I’m thinking the toenail polish.

    October 9, 2011 at 10:39 am
  • MaryBeth


    I’m guessing there’s really no tattoo. My favorite blue is cobalt.

    October 9, 2011 at 10:50 am
  • My favourite is the blue of my beloved Husky’s right eye.
    I think the tattoo is a lie. Thanks for participating in this great hop.

    October 9, 2011 at 11:03 am

    Love me a good navy. Or cobalt. And I think the toenail polish is the lie 🙂

    October 9, 2011 at 11:04 am
  • Marcy


    That’s a tough one. I think my favorite blues of the moment would have to be all the teals, lightened and darkened. Although when I checked out my stash blues, whoa, I have a lot of this color.

    October 9, 2011 at 11:11 am
  • Jayne Moore


    My favorite blue is a bright royal blue. I think Emily doesn’t have a sewing machine tattoo. Thanks for the chance to win.

    October 9, 2011 at 11:18 am

    I really like an intense royal blue. And I’m thinking the tattoo is a lie.

    My favorite blue is the color of the ocean on a warm, clear, summer day.

  • Beth T.


    My favorite blue…Yankee pinstripe blue. (Or the blue of my broken heart now that they’re out of the running…)

    I’m guessing that the sewing machine silhouette is the lie, although it’s a great idea. Personally, I’m not such a fan of sparkly toenails, but since I seem to be in the minority in this world on that subject, I’ll go with the tattoo.

    Thanks for the giveaway. I would love to win–just like everyone else, I know.

    October 9, 2011 at 11:45 am
  • KarenInTucson


    Since my Hubby loves blue, I use it a lot when I quilt and decorate. My favorite blue is a bright sky blue. Personally I hope the tattoo is the Lie!

  • Kaye M.


    My favorite shade of blue is aqua, actually its blue and green mixed but I think its beautiful! Last year I used aqua, green, purple and pale yellow fabrics for my quilt guild mystery quilt. I was really happy with how it turned out. I think the lie is the sewing machine tattoo!

    that color combination sounds VERY nice!!

    October 9, 2011 at 12:00 pm
  • Karen A


    My favorite blue has to be the color of the sky on a clear fall day. It seems to have more intensity at this time of year. I’ll go with the guess of the tattoo being a lie.

    October 9, 2011 at 12:28 pm
  • Dee Johnson


    I am guessing the tatoo is a lie. Love blueberries even though red and yellow are my favorite color. My favorite blue? my children and husbund and myself have blue eyes. As well as the Birman cats I showed in CFA.

    October 9, 2011 at 12:32 pm
  • Carol D.


    My favorite blue is the cobalt blue on the Polish stoneware I collect. Stunning color. I think the lie is the nail polish. Thanks for the chance to win!

    October 9, 2011 at 12:39 pm
  • How could anyone not like blue? It’s such a natural color, because we all love pretty blue skies, don’t we? 🙂 I’m working on a blue and yellow quilt right now, and my favorite blue in this quilt is the navy with white polka-dots. It just looks so crisp. I love navy blue clothes, too, but I have such a hard time finding navy pants, I don’t know why.
    The tattoo has to be the lie. It would be cute, though!

    First ~ I think the lie is the sewing machine tattoo.

    And my favorite blue currently is aqua/teal. For some reason just seeing that color makes me feel happy. It never did but for some reason it does now.

    i like the blue skies kind of blue rather than the sad one, though black hole sun is a good choice for that. country as a genre also comes across as really sad. but somehow i love the blues! no sadness there for me, just toe-tapping excellence.
    i’m gonna say the nail polish. sparkles? no, really, blue is wicked enough!

  • Katie


    I would have to say my favorite blue thing is blueberries (sorry!) They are so yummy though – but only fresh ones. Frozen ones are def not as good. But they are def yummy in summertime 🙂

    And I think the lie from above is the tattoo!

    October 9, 2011 at 1:33 pm
  • Hmmmm… I am going to say the tattoo is probably not the truth… bears wouldnt suprise me… I stopped the car, jumped out and took pictures of a Mama bear and her two cubs! As for blue… I like the shade of my husband and daughters blue eyes… I also like the blue sky above a snow capped mountain and I really love the blue hues you can find in the Pacific Ocean… seriously, who can pick just one blue!!!?!

    My FAV blue … the gorgeous blue of the New Mexico sky … cerulean ?

    I love just about all blues, but indigo fabric is one of my faves. It always catches my eye at quilt shops, especially the indigo and white batiks.

    Sewing machine tattoo on her lower back? I can’t believe it!

    October 9, 2011 at 1:57 pm
  • Cheryl


    I would have to say my favorite blue is turquoise blue. I have to agree with Emily on the blueberry thing. I think that is the only berry I don’t like (“rule breaker” is my middle name) 😉 ..!! And I think that Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles is the lie. Thanks for the chance to win, and the mini blue interview was fun!

    October 9, 2011 at 1:58 pm
  • Instead of the most liked blue, I’ll tell you my most disliked blue: The colour of the babyphone lights when one of my two little boys starts crying… Happend already 5 times within the last 3 hours… aaah! You can’t finish a project with a sick little one ;o(
    The lie is probably the tattoo, isn’t it?
    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    Blue in all it’s variations is my favorite color. During the fall and winter, the blue of a “severe clear” sky is my favorite shade. Thanks for the chance. And, thanks for helping me with your UberFest block. Cheers, Marcia

    My husband was in the infantry so maybe I should say infantry blue but I really much prefer a slate blue unless we’re talking about the sky and then it has to be that color of blue when there aren’t any clouds and there is just a touch of nip in the air at about 7a on an October morning. (I don’t think that blue has a particular name.)

    October 9, 2011 at 2:29 pm
  • Pat V.


    Blue sky in winter, especially with snow-covered trees against the bright blue. The tatoo seems a bit out there, but I’ll guess the toenail polish is a lie.

    October 9, 2011 at 2:29 pm
  • Linda in PA


    I love blueberries! My favorite blue is pretty much all of them. I think the lie is the blue toenail polish.

    October 9, 2011 at 2:31 pm
  • turquoise blue is one of my absolute faves right now…so bright and cheery!

    October 9, 2011 at 2:37 pm
  • My favorite blue is turquoise – but not the rock. And I’m voting on the toenail polish being the lie.

    My very best most favorite is Periwinkle Blue… love love love it !

    Blue is my favorite color anyway, so it’s quite hard to pick and describe that one and only favorite blue of mine…

    Well, my favorite one is not really blue… it’s turquiose.
    But not the green-ish turquiose, rather the more blue shade of that color.

    I just love this color… it kinda calms me down whenenver needed (and yes, it’s needed 24 hours a day, I must confess…) – I don’t know why, but it has a real soothing effect on me… (one of the reasons why almost every room in my appartment is turquoise or blue? (5 times blue, 2 times turquiose, only one black/white/silver one…)

    Anyway: back to my favorite color. It’s the blue that you can see when you are looking for a postcard from the place where you spend your holiday… the “photoshopped” and way overdone turquiose-blue in which the sea appears on all those cards… I don’t like the sea… I just love the color 😀

    Nuff said.

    About the lie… the nailpolish-thingie doesn’t seem trustworthy… at least not to me…

    P.S.: wonderful giveaway!

    Soft warm turquoisy blue, like calm fresh waters. (I’ve really been wanting a trip to an island), I’m thinking the tatoo is the lie.

    I love the surreal look of a gray-blue fall sky when everything else stands out in high contrast against it.

    October 9, 2011 at 3:54 pm
  • My fave blue are my children’s eyes. Corny I know but we have 3 children with big, beautiful blue eyes and I
    wonder ever time I look at the 3 of them (3 children, that it; not 3 eyes)

    I don’t think that “We all live in a yellow submarine” would make her bluer than blue.

    October 9, 2011 at 3:54 pm
  • I just Love to take time out and relax laying on a grassy hill and looking up at the BLUE sky and think of all the things I am thankful for…….

    October 9, 2011 at 3:55 pm
  • Blue on blue……heartache….hmmmm hmmm.

    Blueeeeeeeeeeeee MOON….da da da daa

    Well actually my favorite is aqua blue!

    My favorite blue is the color of the sky just as the last traces of light disappear for the night!

    October 9, 2011 at 4:01 pm
  • i’m going with the sewing machine shaped tattoo as the lie =) ?!
    tell me about your favorite blue, however you interpret that!
    my fave blue? rhythm and blue{s}, blue like jazz, lonesome blue, prairie sky blue, blue{berry} pie, ice blue ..
    definitely a blue luver!

  • Laura


    i think the lie is the toe nail polish. i’m not super fond of blue in quilting. my favorite shade of blue would pry be the color of my niece’s eyes:)

    October 9, 2011 at 4:18 pm
  • I love blue and white and blue and yellow quilts, so my fav is all blue fabrics! And I think the lie is the tattoo, glittery nail polish rocks! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Weird! I agree with the poster above. My favorite blue is the color of the sky just after the sun goes down. My favorite blue song is the Eiffel 65 one 🙂 I think the tatoo is the lie. Thanks for the chance to win! Loved the post!

    October 9, 2011 at 4:38 pm
  • My favorite blue is the color of the Mediterranean Sea the day we decided to move to Spain. (It wasn’t the view that made us decide, however…we went to pastor a church and the decision was long in coming!). It was almost a cobalt. Gorgeous, and I’d never seen anything like it. Thanks for the giveway! I’ve been after that book for a little while now! …and the pattern too…

    October 9, 2011 at 4:51 pm
  • I think your two truths & a lie is exactly backwards of mine… I don’t think blue is your favorite toe nail polish – although it does happen to be mine 🙂

    My favorite blues tend to be children’s cartoon animals. In particular, I’m a fan of Pilchard from Bob the Builder, & Blue from Blue’s Clues. I know I’m too old for either of those, so I use my kids as an excuse to watch them 🙂

    October 9, 2011 at 4:54 pm
  • My favorite blue is aqua… a little green, a little blue.

  • Kate


    Favorite blue?? Periwinkle blue! Though I pretty much love any blue.

    And the lie? I am a terrible guesser- but I am going to guess the tattoo. A honeymoon in a remote area could involve photographing bears and while blue nail polish is not my favorite, I do know there are some who love it!

    October 9, 2011 at 5:41 pm
  • Favorite blue, interpreting differently, would be a grey rainy day. Such a good ‘blue’ feeling I get from that.
    I would have to guess the blue sparkly nail polish is the lie.
    Thanks for the chance to win, I really need to get a stash going, I just started quilting so stash to me is just a few fabrics!

    October 9, 2011 at 5:52 pm
  • Beccy


    My fav blue is the color I painted my living room…not too light or dark, just a hint of green, and changing moods with the light and time of day. I am guessing the lie is the blue sparkly toenails. :o). Thanks for the giveaways!

    October 9, 2011 at 5:59 pm
  • Melissa


    I was always dressed in blue as a baby and it is still my favorite color. My most favoritest blue is French or Periwinkle Blue (my sil says Periwinkle is French Blue, but then she would because everything French is “vastly superior.”) Our guest bedroom is painted this blue and it is very calming (helpful in a home with a teenage boy). Oh, yes, I think the lie is the tatoo.

    October 9, 2011 at 6:00 pm
  • Nancy


    I have always loved blue, maybe because I was blessed with blue eyes, I don’t know, so my favortie blue is the one that makes my eyes pop. I can wear anything from a deep sky blue to a teal, and I always get lots of comments from folks about how it matches my eyes.
    BTW, I think the lie is the tatoo…

    October 9, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    My favorite blue is aqua. I am now collecting aqua & red fabrics for a quilt. I think the grizzles is the lie.

    Robin’s egg blue is my fav. the grizzly bear photo is not true????

    My favorite blue is periwinkle.

    My favorite blue is cornflower , and I believe the lie is that you have sewing machine tattoo on your lower back.

    My favorite blue is peacock blue, it is so bright and sunny it makes me smile.

    Thanks for the great interview!

    My favorite blue is “ocean blue” or turquoise. I think the lie is the honeymoon grizzly search!

  • DeDe


    I think my husband’s eyes are the perfect shade of blue. Kind of like a sparkling clear water blue. I also like the color blue of a Tiffany box but I’m not convinced it’s about the color of the box. Oh, and I think the toenail polish is the lie.

    October 9, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    My very favorite blue is the one that appears right after dusk when the sky is darkening to midnight. Sigh.

    And I think the sewing machine tatoo is the lie…

  • Jodi Guerrero


    Sounds like a great book. I have lots of scraps and would love some great patterns to use them up. My favorite blues are the ocean, a clear sky, the blue in our American flag, mine and my Mom’s eyes and the song “Blue” sang by Patsy Cline. Now that I think of it there are lots of blue things to love.

    Thank you and all the sponsors for the great giveaways and lots of chances to win. Oh and I think the lie is the tattoo.. Or if she does have a sewing machine tattoo, it’s not on her lower back.

    My favorite blue are the Peacock Blue colors. I use to raise peacocks and when I would go outside they would come running and fan their tails. They knew I had food to feed them. Their different shades of blue are a part of nature’s beauty. I’d say the tattoo is a lie.
    We look for Black bears to take pics of in the Smokey Mountains!!

  • Rose


    I love any blue but a clear blue fall day without a cloud in the sky is my favorite blue but I have no idea what it would be called. I’ll have to check out some Crayola blues and match one up to it. I think photographing bears on your honeymoon is made up!

    October 9, 2011 at 8:46 pm
  • Emily K.


    my favorite blue *was* the Tiffany-ish shade of my living room until I was at TJ Maxx the other day. Now I love this velvet armchair in a grey-blue with underlying hint of teal. I’m sure this color has a name, and I’m equally sure I don’t know it.

    October 9, 2011 at 8:50 pm
  • anne


    Hard choice, I do love blue skies. I also love blue skies next to the ocean or perhaps blue skies with some puffy clouds to lie in the grass with my son and “contemplate.” Thanks for a great post and a fab book.

    I think I will have to go with the tattoo as a lie. Is it???

    October 9, 2011 at 9:02 pm
  • Mom C


    I finally got all my stash organized into colors and I have 3 times more blue fabric than any other color! Guess I like blue! I like the deep, jewel blue tones best. Navy is one of my favorite colors, I wear it alot and I like to sew with blue. Most of my quilts have blue somewhere and often it’s the sashing that ties it all together.

    October 9, 2011 at 9:20 pm
  • Lori


    Gotta be Blue cheese!! I love the taste and the sometimes steely shade of blue that runs through it. Blue cheese and triscuit with a glass of wine as a sewing snack!! Thinking the bear photography is the lie!

    Although I livein the ‘wrong’ Carolina, I would have to say Carolina blue is my favorite of all the blues! The lie-—Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles

    October 9, 2011 at 9:53 pm
  • Marcia


    I’m thinking the fib is the blue toenail polish!
    Blue is a popular color in my stash! I love it all… from a bright turquoise to a medium royal blue to a dark navy blue! Thanks for offering FIVE give-aways! You are so kind! 🙂

    October 9, 2011 at 10:39 pm
  • My favourite blue is my Brother sewing machine – it’s trim and stitch panel is blue.
    The first two seem quite adventurous, so I’m guessing that the tame blue nailpolish with rainbow sparkles is the lie!

    October 9, 2011 at 10:55 pm
  • I love blues very much. At the moment my favourite is turquoise. It reminds me of the sea in summer and gives me some holiday feeling, espcially when it is grey and rainy and cool as today! Have no clue about the lies. Perhaps number one?
    Have a great day!

    Aqua…and red..Just can’t get enough.

    Great pics of all the blue stuff at your house. Maybe we’ll pick a color and photograph things at our house too!

    October 10, 2011 at 1:19 am
  • Well I live in North Carolina, so Tarheel blue (sky blue). But really, all blues. I have more blue than anything in my stash except yellow. And my blue scraps runeth over. I love the Roy G. Biv threads and quilt. I’m kinda into rainbows right now. This book could totally tame a stash!

    My favorite blue….blue snowcones (rasberry flavored) on a hot summer day.

    My absolute favorite blue is my beautiful blue eyd granddaughter!! I would hope that the photos of the bears is the lie.

    October 10, 2011 at 6:19 am
  • I like the vibrant blue of the ocean, especially warmer oceans like the Caribbean or Mediterranean etc. Like in the glorious pictures of Greek villages… white plaster houses offset with brilliant blue sea, or lovely aqua waves rolling onto a pale beach.

    October 10, 2011 at 6:25 am
  • Shelley C


    My favorite blue….a blue sky reflected on the pond…such a beautiful color and so hard to replicate into fabric!

    Love me a gorgeous clear blue sky! Or an aqua blue lake. Or a US Navy uniform. Do I have to pick one?! And I’m thinkin’ the tattoo might not be true.

    October 10, 2011 at 7:00 am
  • I love turquoise blue and navy! Navy because it goes with anything, and it is part of the Auburn Tigers colors-:). I think turquoise might go with anything, too! I think the nailpolish is the lie.

    October 10, 2011 at 7:16 am
  • Cornflower blue is my favorite. And I think the lie is the tattoo… but if she really has one, I’d love to see a pic of it!

    The Lie would be about getting a tattoo of sewing maching. My favorite color of blue is Cerulean Blue in paints. Jade would be my thread favorite color of Blue.

    October 10, 2011 at 9:40 am
  • My favorite blue is the turquoise of an Alaskan summer sky. It’s not quite dawn and not quite dark, it’s just a perfect turquoise. I’m calling #3 a lie, although that was a hard question!

    October 10, 2011 at 9:43 am
  • My favorite blue is a teal blue, but I have loved the color blue as long as I can remember. I had a little BLUE wagon as a child as opposed to the “little red wagon.” I also have blue eyes. In high school I was dubbed “Blue Gene” because everything in my closet was blue. Funny thing, I didn’t realize it until a friend told me that I only wore blue. Now I wear almost every color but right now I have on a BLUE shirt!

    My favorite blue is the color of my pool! Swim season is basically over for us and I am realizing that we didn’t have an end of the season blowout like we usually do, and I suddenly find myself missing the pool.

    I am really into turquoise as well. Have quite a stash. Like it paired with red or orange. I am guessing the tatoo as well–although I can totally see somone getting a sewing machine tatoo.

    Aqua blue of course…Love..Love…Love it! Wow! So many blues …. I am not typically drawn to blues though, but just finished up a totally blue quilt for ny mom and dad though…. and they LOVED it! I bet the lie is the fingernail polish! Who knows???? Thanks for the chance…

  • Periwinkle blue is my favourite! It seems happy and almost translucent which makes it feel light. I think the sparkley toe nail polish is the fib!

    October 10, 2011 at 6:14 pm
  • I love the blue of hydrangeas.
    I’m guessing that the tatoo is the untruth, uh, lie!

    October 10, 2011 at 6:19 pm
  • Blue really isn’t my favourite colour. I also prefer red (or yellow or green). I guess my favourite blue would have to be the blue of the sky on a summer day. No clouds. No wind. Just blue sky and sun!

    I guess I’d have to go with the tattoo as the “lie” also…although it would be so cool if it were, in fact, true!

    without a doubt, blue is my favourite colour, if you look at my fabric stash, you can see it
    if I could “make” a fabric picking up a shade of blue, I would use the colour of the sky when it is between day and afternoon
    a lie? I think the tatoo, can’t imagine it 😉

    I love blue, its been my favorite color since I was a kid. I love blueberries, I love my blue square plates from IKEA, I love the blue on my bedroom walls, just for starters…
    My guess is the tattoo is a lie. I have blue fingernail polish and I can imagine trying to (safely) photograph a grizzly. But you never know!

    October 11, 2011 at 10:12 pm
  • blue skies, nuthin’ but blue skies up above!
    and the lie is the sewing machine tattoo on your back.

    October 12, 2011 at 2:22 am
  • I love the blue in my husband’s eyes. He has beautiful blue eyes! I think the lie is Toenail polish of choice: blue with rainbow sparkly sprinkles.. because seeking out grizzly bears on a honeymoon is just crazy enough to be true.

    Aquas are my favorite blues right now. Though I love a good navy, too! Thanks for the chance – btw, I think the tat of the sewing machine is a lie!

    Repeating many but the blue sky is my favorite. It is varied, season to season, and makes me at peace just looking at it.
    The lie: fingerpolish

    I love all shades of blue but my favorite would have to be cornflower blue. I’m going to guess that the lie is the tattoo, though I have wanted a small sewing machine tattoo for a long time. I just never have the guts to go through with it! Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

    Love petrol blue, but my little boy would take any blue, he’s obsessed 🙂
    Going to take a guess at the tattoo….

    OK, I’m “in”! Love this post – and your quilts too (so much color). The lie has to be about the toenail polish! And I love cobalt blue, reminds me of the sky out in New Mexico, so gorgeous! And yummy blueberries – I grow lots of them, dozens and dozens of bushes here on the property, and love to eat them warm in my hands as I pick them! Do you have a child named Maeve? So unusual to see the name in print anywhere. That is my first name also. Very Irish! Love your site, have bookmarked it today! And thanks for the giveaway opportunities!

    It has got to be sky blue, just love looking at the sky on a beautiful fall day

  • My alltime favourite blue would have to be ‘cornflower blue’….that whitewashed blue that looks wonderful ANYWHERE… it! Stands out alone or against white or yellow but cornflower blue is the star!!!!
    thanks for the chance to win

    Can I say I love your blue fabric pictured above? I love blue skies and the ocean when its clear blue. This book looks great! My guess for the lie is about the nail polish. Thank you for the giveaway.

    The Atlantic Ocean on a sunny day is my favorite blue… so many different shades in there! I’m going to guess that the sewing machine tattoo is the lie.
    Fingers crossed!!!

    This is the first time I’ve been to your Blog and must say, you are a very funny person. I’m sorry you didn’t get red as your color (I’m not usually a red person but did buy quite a bit of red/white fabrics lately) but blue is a beautiful color. I love to see blue skies (although we’ve had a lot rain lately), the ocean and forget-me-not flowers. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win something and I have added your Blog to my favorites.

    Well the blue I like has a lot of gray in it. And just to be different I am going to guess that the untruth is the part about the honeymoon spent seeking bears. Thanks for the chance to win an awesome prize!

    I just found your blog via twomoreseconds…WOW! How cool. I love the blues in your banner!!
    Just yesterday I was agonising over whether or not to throw out some teeny tiny scraps – glad I didn’t! Just in case I win the book:) Fingers crossed!
    As for blue, I love the New Order song ‘Blue Monday’ and most definitely the blue of the sky over the beach in summer in Melbourne, but for sewing…electric blue wins hands down.

  • BLUE everything. I have a blue kitchen, decorations, clothing and even at one time, my whole house had county blue carpet throughout! BLUE everything! Thanks for the giveaway.

    Blue is calming. Love blue. Thanks for the giveaway chance!

    I love blue, just about any blue will do. I am especially fond of the bright cheerful blues that are so popular right now.

    October 14, 2011 at 10:07 am
  • i really love the bright aqua blues that pop so well with red. i haven’t done a quilt in it, but one day i will.

    i’m guessing that the nail polish statement is a lie, because it makes me happy to think that someone has a sewing machine tattooed on their back!

    also, i LOVE the mug on the right! i’ve never seen a milk glass mug in that shape, it’s fabulous! i have the fire king mug on the right, and i adore it. i’m glad to see someone else using theirs as storage!

    I think the mug on the right is also fire king…newer maybe or older?? aren’t they both great!?

    You know, Scott, you can’t get to Heaven in a red canoe because God’s favorite color is Carolina Blue! :o)

    Fav Blue? We just returned from Moab Utah where the blue of the sky against all those red and gold monoliths is unbelievably stunning.
    Having just had my 30+ year old tattoo redone ( I forgot how much they hurt!) I have to choose that.

    My favorite blue is the brilliant blue of the sky after the rain framed with puffy white clouds. Never fails to make me smile.

    all blues from palest to darkest (with the exception of baby blue, not much of a fan) and …. the grizzly bear.

    My favorite blue is the blue of my son’s eyes. And I think #3 is the lie.
