Do you ever leaf through quilting magazines or books prior to purchasing? I do! On a recent trip to JoAnn’s, ostensibly to purchase a skein of navy embroidery thread, I picked up the Winter 2014/2015 edition of America Loves Scrap Quilts published by McCall’s Quilting.
The specialty magazine contains lots of lovely projects! I noticed that the instructions are not interrupted by ads – a plus for someone like me who’s easily distracted. So, I’m turning pages, oohing and aahhing . . . and come upon a quilt I designed, “Pinwheel Panache!”
This quilt first appeared in McCall’s Quick Quilts, February/March 2010. Perhaps you have a copy . . .
It was fun to see my quilt reprinted – proof that it is still a great design assembled in the time saving method of layering four fat quarters, cutting through all four layers, swapping pieces and sewing the pieces into pinwheels. Intrigued? You can purchase a copy of America Loves Scrap Quilts directly from the McCall’s website. Click here for the Print Issue. Click here for the Digital Issue.
