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.
That hectic season when all the behind-the-scenes prep takes place, resulting in the beautiful, well-oiled machine that is our Quilt Market Booth! Almost daily, new made-up items arrive here in the office for the booth display. Here’s a peek at some projects using PRIMO PLAIDS – CHRISTMAS, AMERICAN BOUQUET, and AUNT GRACE TIES ONE ON, from left to right. (We’ll follow up with Pati for specific pattern info on these projects later — judging from how quickly she’s racing thru the halls, clearly now is not the time… We look forward to seeing all of our quilt shop owner customers and associates in Pittsburgh, May 15-18.
