Baja sunset in McCall’s Quilting

Baha-Sunset flat 600px
I have another quilt published in McCall’s Quilting magazine!
It’s called Baja Sunset
(I named it Genesis 9:16)
Cover-200px
Here’s a link to McCall’s showing other quilts in this issue as well

And here’s MINE!!
Smile
Of course I designed this quilt in EQ7!!

McCall’s is listing the directions for some of the blocks as foundation pieced. I did all rotary cut, here’s my box with all of them.
P1010370
The blocks are done and don’t all fit on the design wall.
P1010956P1010957
then sewing all the blocks together
P1010982
Into rows
P1010986P1010987
One tip I want to share about joining the POINTS, is to have a pin STRAIGHT up thru the layers right on the point, then pinning normally around it on the edges, and then removing the STRAIGHT pin.
P1020005
The center is sewn together
P1020007
P1020008
and border added on
P1020009
And quilted and bound
P1020195
I did a curved quilting design all over
(which was also mentioned in the magazine by Sherri Bain Driver!)
P1020196P1020197
Now who wants a copy of this magazine??
I have TWO copies.
Just comment and let me know!
I’ll pick a winner Friday the 14th


The last few days I've gotten LOTS of NO-REPLY blogger comments, not sure if it's a blogger thing, but make sure there's a way to reply to you!
