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.
Just in from Homestead Hearth…a sneak peek at their latest project for McCall’s Quilting magazine (August 2014 issue). They’ve mixed fabrics from the MOLLY B’s CLASSIC WOVENS IIcollection to capture the very essence of the comforts of hearth and home. The Great Outdoors design is perfect for showcasing yarn-dyed woven plaids and stripes like Molly B’s. Instructions are in the issue, and a quilt kit is available. Size approx 84″ x 101″
…The first issue of 2014 (Jan/Feb) just hit my desk, and we’re thrilled to see Nancy Rink’s quilt made the cut! It’s on the chair, third from the left, and it features PARTY OF TWELVE by Judie Rothermel, PIN MONEY by Pam Buda and PAULA BARNES COMPANIONS. Check out this full view of the quilt, called “Clara’s Pride”...with just two block designs and a beautiful range of repro prints, we think it’s a great way to begin the quilting year! Congratulations, Nancy! — lisa s
