Rectangle Blues

Have you all seen Quilt Scene?? So much great stuff in here!

Quilt Scene

I was lucky enough to have a quilt pattern published in it!

Rectangle Blues on Couch

Rectangle Blues in Mag

Rectangle Blues in Mag2

And the Modern Quilt Guild also got a nice mention!

MQG Mention

I made this quilt a while ago… so nice to finally be able to blog about it! I used a lot of Moda Crossweaves in it.  They are so beautiful!  A couple more photos…
