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

Modern Circle Quilt

This quilt made by Gerry B. is a study in modern circles. She created these wonderful scrappy circles and them appliqued them onto the black fabric. So much black fabric! So many choices. In the end, because she likes stars, I did a star motif in the black area with some feathers surrounding it. In order to keep the border simple and set off the interior, I did some straight line work. It was hard to photograph, but you get the idea.

Happy quilting!
