Have you found a copy of McCall’s Quick Quilts April/May issue? Besides containing instructions for my quilt, “Cozy Up,” the magazine boasts more than 10 other lovely quilts. On a recent shopping trip to JoAnn’s on Skibo Rd. in Fayetteville, NC, I noticed multiple copies of the magazine for sale. They are on an end cap disply near the garment patterns (rather than on the magazine rack near the cash registers). Another option is ordering a magazine from the Quilt and Sew Shop online.
Prior to sending directions for “Cozy Up” to McCall’s for editing and publication, I asked Karlyn to test the pattern. Here is her beautiful result – a wedding gift for her nephew and his bride.
Karlyn purchased a print with tiffany blue, yellow and a hint of orange for the border and interior patchwork squares. I love the vibrant tonals she selected to coordinate with the border print! She enlarged the quilt by adding a border.
The instructions given in Quick Quilts are for a lap size quilt. If you’d like to make a larger quilt, McCall’s editors have posted free instructions for a queen size “Cozy Up” as a Web Bonus. Click here to access the instructions.
