Bloom
Michelle was inspired by those wisps of colors here and there as blooms start to come alive after a winter’s sleep. Bloom has a whimsical layout of Spinning Bloom V Stars and Five Diamond Blocks that create Ohio Stars when set on-point.  She alternated the two blocks and set them on point, so they come together to create blooms and greenery popping here and there!  Whether you go with pastels or bright batiks, light, medium or dark background, this quilt will look fabulous!  
Bloom comes together easily with S180 V Block™ and Square²™ (or Large Square Squared™)

Be Dazzled
A modern merging of Ohio Stars and Shaded Nine-Patch comes together to dazzle!    Be Dazzled is a splendid combination of traditional and modern.  Creative use of those blender fabrics!  The negative space amongst the Shaded Nine-Patch create a unique secondary design, which provides an excellent space for custom quilting to accentuated your design.
Be Dazzled comes together easily with the S180 Tucker Trimmer™ and Square²™
Quilt Sizes: Throw, Double, and Queen
