“Summer Safari” Published

_CoverFULLHave you picked up the June/July issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts? If you have, turn to page 18 for my “Summer Safari” baby quilt design.

If you need a fast and fun project, this is it!

Click here to link to the McCall’s blog to read about the origin of this design; I am the guest blogger today! Click here to find free instructions for making the block, called “Rail Fence” by McCall’s editors.

“Rail Fence” or “Simple Pinwheel” looks great in many colorways. Click here to see Krystin’s quilt in pink and purple. Click here to see Stacy’s patriotic quilt. Click here to see Marjorie’s scrappy version. Click here to see Rachel’s “Peachy” quilt on her blog stitchedincolor.com.

And now for the give-aways:  McCall’s graciously sent me several complimentary magazines. If you would like one, leave a comment below stating what colors you would use when making this quilt. The drawing will be May 6, 2016.

  1. Beautiful quilt! If it were for a baby, I’d probably do primary colors, but I have so many nursery prints, I’d pick some of those.

  2. I have a bug fabric that would make a good border so it calls for bright green, red, sunshine yellow and chocolate – or I might use the bug fabric for a row like you did. Summer seems like an ideal time to get out the bug fabric!

  3. Such a nice quilt pattern. I would make 2 – one in boy colors (blues/browns/greens) and one in girl colors (pinks/yellow/oranges).
