Check out the cover of McCall’s Quick Quilts, February/March 2014. My wall quilt, “Charmville,” is on the cover! I am beyond excited!
My inspiration for “Charmville” came from some interestingly colored homes in my son’s and his wife’s neighborhood. This photo was taken on a walk down a quiet street, but that yellow/orange and bold blue are anything but quiet!
Making each block from one color family lent order to the scrappy chaos. I selected a yellow “window” square for the center of each “Nine Patch” to represent the vibrant life within each home.
As for that very scrappy, patchy house in the bottom row . . . there’s one in every neighborhood!
