Wow! The order for the Fresco Fandango was in the mailbox when I got up yesterday morning. Well, almost - the mailman doesn't come until noon so that held it up a few hours - and I did get up before noon! It was so impressive. Thanks so much because it was exactly what my friend wanted and needed.

Rosalind is a contemporary interpretation of a classic design with the basic block being a rectangle rather than a square. Some of the rectangles are strip-pieced first, then cut into quarters and mixed into the design. The setting for the blocks is scatter style, rather than a traditional formal one. In the red quilt example, fabric A is the light background rose, and in the blue quilt it is the light medallion. Fabric B in the blue quilt is a dark stripe and in the red quilt it is a dark background rose print. The strip pieced blocks remain in the same position in both quilts.
