McCall's Quilting July/August 2016

May 27, 2016

My heart rate increased when I got the following notification:


Hello Rachel,

We'd like to use your quilt in the McCall's Quilting July/August 2016 issue.




You'll find my quilt, Dandelions, on page 34 of this issue.  It is a simple design I created in Electric Quilt (EQ) software using only two simple blocks. I know quilters sometimes struggle with fabric choices, so for my quilt, I made it easy for you- only two fabrics with some white accents. One 8" block is made from half square triangles, and the other is a simple cross block.



Once I had the quilt designed in the software I did my "squinty-eye" test to get a feel of what the whole quilt would look like.  Dandelions!   

Thank you McCall's for publishing it!
