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

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

And the Modern Quilt Guild also got a nice 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…

    I so want to get to the point where my OCD mind will allow me to create something as contemporary as your Rectangle Blues quilt. It’s so beautiful. I just started my first string block and I love it, but my brain keeps telling me to “square that mess up!” Thanks for the giveaway and keep doin’ what you do!
