Blogger's Bar Hop Quiltalong

My friend Scott of Blue Nickel Studios has organized another quilt along this fall and it starts next week. The "Blogger's Bar Hop Quiltalong" features fabrics generously supplied by Clothworks from their European Taupe VIII collection by Kinkame. And the "bar" name derives from the fact that Scott has asked each designer to create a block that focuses on rectangles, or bars, in it's layout.  It's not that kind of a bar hop. ;)

Each designer was given four fat quarters from the collection and we could add one solid and one print of our choice OR two solids if we wanted to. The other requirement was that we had to use at lease one rectangle (bar) in the block somewhere. All of the blocks will finish to a 12" x 12" size (unfinished blocks will measure 12 1/2" x 12 1/2"). Please feel free to post your blocks to our flickr group as you create along with us.
