McCall’s Magazine Winner

The lucky winners of the May/June 2020 issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine are Lyna W. and  Connie G.! I have emailed these ladies requesting their USPS addresses.

Thanks everyone for your compliments on my “Star Baker” table runner and also for your suggestions for other colors and fabrics for the project. It really is fun to envision the runner in other fabric combinations. You suggested patriotic, Halloween, blue and silver, pastels, as well as purple and green.

If you didn’t win this time and your newsstand is sold out of the issue, you can purchase a digital copy from Quilting Daily. Click here to link to the online shop.

  1. Aby, I am sorry to bother you, but I am having a problem with a pattern from your web site. It is the Saturday Scrap Strategy #8 from May 2018. I am ready to add border #2 and don’t understand the corner blocks. Your directions say 21/2 strips to 2 sides of a 41/2 square, but that seems to leave a 21/2 space at the bottom of the row. What am I missing? Please help.

    • You need to sew 2 1/2” wide white strips to adjacent sides of the colored corner square, making an “elbow” of white on one of the corners. So, one strip would measure 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” and the other would measure 2 1/2” x 6 1/2” (for each of the 4 1/2” corner squares). I am sorry for the ambiguity. I hope this clarifies the instructions. Thanks for asking the question, and good luck with your quilt!
