You’ll find this quilt in the May/June Quiltmaker which begins mailing to subscribers today. The Scrap Squad got the pattern February 1 and took off like wildfire! I am so excited to show you what they’ve done. There is a giveaway on each SS member’s blog: you could win one of Julie’s Herman’s new patterns, and they are awesome!!! Please click on each quilt to read more and enter that giveaway.

First, a refresher: QM Scrap Squad is eight select readers who make scrappy versions from one pattern in each issue. The idea is to give you inspiration to use fabrics you already own so you can bust that stash you’ve been building!

And now, drum roll please, here are Scrap Squad versions of Raspberry Dessert; each photo links to the maker’s blog or webpage where you can read more and leave comments for giveaways:
