“Chevies on the Levee” Published!

Cover sept oct 2014 mccalls

My subcription copy of McCall’s Quilting Sept./Oct. 2014 arrived in my mailbox last week. I was happy to see my quilt, “Chevies on the Levee,” pictured beautifully, draped over a boat with flipflops in the foreground and a lake in the background. The staff photographers at McCall’s are awesome; they imaginatively stage each quilt, inviting quilters to read the instructions and make the quilts!

McCall’s graciously sent extra copies of the magazine issue for me to share with my blog followers. If you would like to be in the drawing for a copy, “follow” my blog and leave a comment below saying which quilt in the issue most appeals to you. I’ll draw four lucky winners on August 2, 2014.

Alternate construction method: Instead of assembling the strip-pieced blocks in diagonal rows as the magazine shows, you can try an alternate and innovative piecing and cutting method. I’ll describe this method in my next blog post.
