Scrapalicious Quilt in McCall’s Quick Quilts

Hand in Hand QuiltScrapalicious Quilt (formerly known as “Hand in Hand”)

Good things do happen at my Scrapalicious class! This quilt was a collaboration with Chris Daniels during one of our classes. Once we decided on the design (and a big thanks to Wanda for helping us do the math!) she pieced it all together. Then I got the opportunity to quilt it up, and we both like it so much I asked Chris if I could submit it to a magazine. Well, the rest is history and here it is in full color in the December/January 2015 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts.

Once we receive the quilt back from the publisher, the quilt will go home and live with Chris. But next year I plan to teach a class on this one so stay tuned for that! Or if you must get started right now, check out McCall’s website for the pattern.

Subscription issues will begin shipping October 14, 2014. By October 28, 2014, the issue will be available on newsstands, as well as in print or digital download format at QuiltandSewShop.com at the following link: http://www.quiltandsewshop.com/category/quick-quilts

 

My Quilts in McCall’s Quick Quilts!

McCall's Quick Quilts 2014December/January 2015 Issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts

I am thrilled to have two quilts in this issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts! One project is the quilt that came about during my Scrapalicious Class with Chris Daniels, and the other is the Kapow! Flower (which the magazine is calling “Just Bloom.” How exciting! I love seeing stuff in print….and they take such gorgeous pictures! So over the next few days I’ll put in photos and links to these two projects.

The Fall/Winter 2014 issue of MIY Magazine is here!

So many great ideas to explore. So much fun to have. And it’s almost winter, so it’s time to hunker down and get some crafty time. Cuppa coffee anyone? Head over to the Make It Yourself Magazine Facebook page and check it out.

And while I like many craft and quilt magazines, this particular issue holds a special place in my heart because Sheila Sinclair Snyder of License to Quilt and I teamed up and created several of the upcycled sweater projects for this issue.

Last Fall we did a shopping trip to gather old sweaters. It was a hoot and a half! If you haven’t visited Value Village in Springfield, Oregon….then put it on your must-do list. Then we were off to the races designing and laughing and creating.

So over the next few days, I’ll feature a couple of the projects we submitted. So as part of your winter cleaning, you can clear out your closets of those old sweaters you aren’t using any more and turn them into fabulous things!

They also sell magazines in Barnes & Noble and some other bookstores, but usually you would see them most often in grocery stores—either at the checkout or where all of the magazines are together in the newsstand.

Happy quilting….and crafting!
