Quiltmaker Sneak Peek

So I mentioned earlier that I'm working with Quiltmaker magazine on their Scrap Squad. Well they've given us our first assignment and it's a FUN one!



This first quilt assignment is for a pattern called Rhapsody in Bloom. I can't wait for you to see it! It's a quilt designed by a teenage boy. It’s a clever block that seems to form sashing when joined to other blocks.



I can't show you much of the pattern yet, but I'll show you the colors I worked with. I used all scraps from many, many other projects. When you see my quilt, you'll hear Calypso music playing in the background.
Next week I'll be able to share a bigger sneak peek and then on the 28th I'll post the entire quilt top, with links to the other Scrap Squad members, a link to Quilty Pleasures, and I'm hoping to share an interview with the pattern designer on the 29th.


Cheers,

Dionne

Looks great so far! I'm anxious to read the interview and see everyone else's tops. Nice to see young men taking an interest too.
