Blue and white quilt

I finally finished this quilt after about five years!  Not that I was working on it for five years straight.  I finished several other quilts in between working on this one.  The problem was in all those triangle squares.  I used commercial marked paper to make the squares and making them was a piece of cake.  Then the problem started when I tried to get the paper off the backs of the triangle squares.  That took forever and I had to resew the edges of many of them.  I doubt very much if I will ever use that method again.  I will just put the two squares together, mark and sew them the old-fashioned way and save hours and hours of time.  Many years ago in an old quilting magazine I found this setting and put it in my file of quilts that I wanted to make.I love the way the blue and white paths go across the quilt.

Here's the finished quilt.
