I am so excited! My “Trip to the Farm” baby quilt has been published in the Feb./Mar. 2015 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts! If you are not yet a subscriber or your fabric shop doesn’t carry the magazine, click the icon below. You can see the projects included in the issue, and you’ll be linked to the McCall’s online shop; you can order the magazine directly from McCall’s.
This big-patch quilt was super fast and super fun to make. It’s 49 1/2″ square, the perfect size for “tummy time” or for decorating the nursery. I hope you’ll give it a try.
I purchased most of the fabric at my local quilt shop, Loving Stitches in Fayetteville, NC. The farm theme print and the coordinating green print with flowers and little chickens tempted me beyond resistance! Click on the picture to see the background fabric . . . a chicken wire print.
The quilt pattern is versatile, not just for baby quilts. I made a wall hanging as a wedding gift that turned out very nicely. Read more about this project here.
As a design variation, you can rotate the half square triangles to achieve a star design.
Please let me know if you make “Trip to the Farm.” I would love to share a picture of your quilt with blog readers.
McCall’s sent me two complimentary copies of the magazine. If you would like to be in the January 6th drawing for a free magazine, leave a comment below.
