I am on the new Quiltmaker Scrap Squad!

I am so excited to be selected for the 2015 Quiltmaker Scrap Squad.  Here is the blog posting announcing the new team.

I will say having my picture taken was difficult, and we took a lot of shots!

I have my first assignment and I'm excited about it.  My first thought in any quilt is always batiks.  They are my favorite fabrics as I love the colors and designs of batiks.  I dumped out my bin of batiks and soon discarded them and I'm going a different direction.  You will find that out eventually!

I'm so glad you are on the Scrap Squad. I have tried a few times to join this elite group, but they didn't choose me. I enjoyed my time Testing Blocks for the QM 100 Blocks Issues. I'll be watching and cheering you on from here!

Congratulations, how exciting. That's a nice selection of Batik scraps, but I'm sure your choices will be beautiful whatever they are.
