For my Hoffman Challenge entry for 2011 I used Ricky Tims’ Rhapsody technique.  I really intended for it to be much simpler than it turned out.  It’s one of those things that once it was started, just kept evolving.  I hadn’t planned to do any quilting on the applique, but it looked sort of bland, so I tried just a little bit, and what a difference it made!

That’s the name of my 2010 Hoffman Challenge quilt. I saw an antique quilt of this pattern and thought it would be good to try it in a small piece. Piecing a large quilt like this would be daunting, to say the least! I’m not a big fan of paper piecing, but that’s the only way to do this one.  Background fabric is hand dyed, as is the gold.  The light blue is the Hoffman challenge fabric.
