Quiltmaker Scrap Squad 1st project

Since late December, when I was selected to be one of eight Quiltmaker's 2011 Scrap Squad members, we have been busy, busy, busy trying out the new pattern Rhapsody in Bloom.  It is a beautiful pattern designed by a teen age boy,
Doug Leko of Antler QUilt Design.

It is amazing to see how eight different quilters can take one pattern, choose their own fabrics and come up with eight different, beautiful quilts.

Here is how I choose the fabrics and made the pattern into a wall hanging or table topper.

Four Rhapsody In Bloom blocks
Fabrics I choose: Border Print and Batiks

Center Block

Mitered Corners from Border Prints & borders

This is how 4 blocks and 3 borders made the finished Rhapsody in Bloom.  This is before it was quilted.
40 x 40 inches.

I tried it as a wall hanging, there are some old pictures on the wall of my husband, Clarence & I in 1952, and one of our grandaughters, Lindsay and Liz when they were young.

The last is how the quilt looks as a table topper.

I was happy with this project and can't wait until we get our next assignment!
