Are you a subscriber to McCall’s Quick Quilts? If so, you may have already received your April/May 2015 issue by mail. If not, you can order it online; click the magazine icon below to link to the Quilt and Sew Shop for ordering.
Why would you, a reader of abyquilts.wordpress.com, want to purchase the most recent issue of Quick Quilts? Because my quilt, “Cozy Up,” is featured on page 28.
I began this quilt last March while visiting my friend Deb in Nebraska. Uninterrupted time in her cozy sewing room was the impetus I needed to transfer my design idea from paper to fabric. Incidentally, most of the fabrics were designed by Denyse Schmidt. Don’t you love the fresh, yet retro, appeal of the colors and prints?
Last summer, prior to sending the quilt to McCall’s for photography and publication, I snapped some pictures of the quilt at Holden Beach near a neighbor’s cozy vacation A-frame.
At 60″ x 76,” it is just the right size for a beach blanket or a cozy sofa quilt.
Mary Ann H. snapped a picture as I “advertised” the magazine at my guild meeting.
