How about making this happy quilt to celebrate the new year?!
In my previous post, I proposed a Quilt Along (QAL) for “Charmville,” my quilt published in the Feb./Mar. 2014 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. I hope you will participate! The quilt is fun and easy to make and helps utilize those small bits of fabric in your overflowing scrap bin. If you cannot find the magazine locally, you may purchase it from the McCall’s website. My contract with McCall’s prohibits me from providing the instructions on the blog, so please purchase the magazine or simply use the photo above as a springboard for designing your own quilt.
Leave a comment below if you plan to participate in the Quilt Along. Feel free to modify the quilt design idea to fit your space and decor. For example, you could make a table runner, pillow, pincushion, potholder, vest, etc. The deadline for sending me a picture of your project will be 10 March 2014. Shortly after that date, I will post pictures of all the completed “Charmville” projects, and we’ll have a Viewer’s Choice vote of the favorite quilt. The winner will receive a $50 gift certificate for my longarm quilting service.
Happy New Year . . . and Happy Quilting!
