Fresh on my desk this morning: The new Jan/Feb 2015 issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine. And gracing the cover is their “Cottage Romance” design, made up of prints from AMERICAN BOUQUET and SIDEWALK CAFE, both by Faye Burgos. As you can see, her classic florals combine beautifully in this generous 96″ square quilt. This issue contains Part 1 of the 6-part series, resulting in this gorgeous quilt at the end of the year. Enjoy the creative process in two-month intervals, as well as the convenience of a Kit, available through the magazine.
Check out Charlotte’s or your favorite local quilt shop to sign up for this beautiful BOM project, featuring wool applique on cotton prints, both by The Quilted Crow Girls Designs. THE SEASONS wool collection started with 20 colors, and 6 more colors will be added in January…

A recent Quilter’s Newsletter blog postfeatures Faye Burgos’ frighteningly fun Halloween H’Owl panel design, and even offers it in a convenient kit. Check out all of its project picks for Halloween fun! Think it’s a bit late? Not really… Halloween has gradually morphed into an entire season rather than just one day, so it’s become popular to decorate with ghouls & goblins from the first touches of cool weather, right on through the autumn season. (Have you noticed people putting up orange lights and elobarate, spooky displays outdoors now, in advance of the Christmas lights?) Enjoy!
You’ll want to recreate this gorgeous felted wool and cotton print project designed and machine quilted by Deirdre Bond-Abel of Quilted Crow Girls Designs.

Instructions are in the new Nov/Dec issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine.
