2016 Raffle Quilt: Rhapsody in Blue

Rhapsody in Blue

RSQ's 2016 raffle quilt "Rhapsody in Blue" is the product of a collaborative effort of the Rising Star Quilters Guild. This beautiful machine pieced 86" x 97" quilt is a geometric design that combines rich hues of blues and purples with an exciting "pop" of green accents. It is truly a "Rhapsody in Blue" with its deep jewel tones and and wide variety of fabrics. Quilter's Way granted permission to use their copyrighted pattern, "Twisting Again." The quilt is machine quilted using a colorful variegated thread in an all-over field design that is highlighted on the blue-marbled backing. The guild's signature rising star block and label are displayed on the back. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the charity "REACH - beyond domestic violence".
