Quilt With Us

Second Scrap Squad Quilt - AND GIVE AWAYS!!!!

As many of you know, I was lucky enough to be selected as a member of Quiltmaker's Scrap Squad and it's time for the reveal of Project #2.  The original quilt and pattern will appear in the May/June issue of Quiltmaker soon to be on the newstand.  Here's my version.

This pattern is Raspberry Dessert designed by Julie Herman of www.jaybirdquilts.com  Julie is a talented young designer and you will enjoy her site.  The original quilt was done all in pinks - hence the Raspberry name but we were asked to recreate it "scrappy".  Mine was made primarily from strips I cut down  from a Jellyroll I'd purchased some time ago.  Just like last time, the Scrap Squad members' quilts are all so different and you can see them all here by scrolling half way down the page and following the links to each members page or blog.  They will also be featured on Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures.  The ladies did an amazing job - some added borders, some followed the original pattern and didn't.  They are all really neat.

Here's the extra special part!!!  Julie has generously provided us with copies of a new pattern to use as giveaways on each of our pages or blogs.  So after you've had a chance to check out the quilts, leave a comment HERE by midnight April 3 and on Monday April 4 I'll do a random drawing to choose the winner.  There is also a fabric giveaway in conjunction with this project on the Quilty Pleasures site.  Enjoy the quilts and good luck - remember you can enter the fabric giveaway at Quilty Pleaures and the pattern giveaway on each of the SS member's pages or blogs.  Can't wait to see who wins here!!!

Carol, Your quilt is just beautiful.  The colors really pop against the white background.  Love it!

I've looked at many of the versions of this pattern.  While the raspberry is nice, the scrappy version is great too.  Congratulations of being chosen, what an honor!

I love the bold, crisp look of your interpretation of the pattern.
