Another Daisy Mae and a giveaway!

Cover full

McCall’s May/June issue 2014.

One of our patterns is in the recent McCall’s Quilting magazine! Woo hoo!





Daisy-Mae-flat-600pxThey called her Daisy Mae- isn’t she cute?


We used fabrics from Robert Kaufman Fabrics- I just love how she came out!





When we designed the quilt, we wanted the flowers to spin a little and the gray squares to form a pinwheel, but you can change the rotation of the blocks and make it look different. Play with it!


And, McCall’s gave us two magazines to give away! Leave a comment at the bottom of this post and tell us what color you would make your flowers and you will be entered into our drawing to win a copy of the May/June McCall’s Quilting magazine. There are lots of great quilts in this issue. And a bonus CD with 18 scrappy projects! How cool is that?
