I’m so excited…!!! Crystal and I did it again- we are on the cover of the newest McCall’s Quick Quilts! Woo hoo! We did have to share the honors- ours is the pink and green quilt.
Crystal did an amazing job quilting this quilt- we talked about the basics and she went and did her thing.
And her thing is amazing.
There is a close up in the magazine- you have to check it out! Page 20.
I had so much fun making this quilt- it is in Quick Quilts so you know it is pretty easy. Some strip piecing, a little fusible appliqué and voila! A beautiful quilt for the spring.
McCall’s even has a kit with the fabrics from RJR- beautiful fabrics from Patrick Lose’s line. Easy peasy. (Click on Just Arrived on the left and you will see the kit for this quilt and others from the magazine.)
I chose to stitch around the appliqué shapes, but you don’t have to depending on the fusible you use. I love to do that, and of course, I used my trusty Aurifil thread. So many pretty colors to pick from!
A couple of products that I like are:
Wonder Under– doesn’t gum up my needle if I am doing the stitching.
Steam a Seam Lite 2– this product makes it really easy to reposition and get the pieces just right with them falling off or shifting around.
The magazine is out on newstands today- so go grab a copy or order it here!
