QM Scrap Squad Interprets Rhapsody in Bloom

QM_scrap-squadB

The newly-formed QM Scrap Squad's first assignment has been very exciting! Each of the eight members made her own scrappy version of Rhapsody in Bloom from March/April (No. 138), a design by Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Design.

The featured quilt (above) is elegant in subdued shades of burgundy, purple, gold and green. The fabric line is Ella by Kathy Brown of The Teacher's Pet for Red Rooster Fabrics.

Look what happened when Scrap Squad members dug into their stashes and created their own versions!

We got this:

Aren't they wonderful? And so very different from the original. That's the idea behind the Scrap Squad: to show you ways to combine the fabric you may already own with Quiltmaker patterns for stunning results.

Hop on over to QM Scrap Squad to see all of the quilts and to hear what these people had to say about this project.

Should you make your own version, you can use the group to share your own photos. We love to see what readers are making with our patterns!
