Quilt in McCall’s and giveaway

_McQ button

I’m in McCall’s quilting magazine again Jan/Feb 2015

_COVER Full

This quilt was inspired by my own Sweater!

I designed it in EQ7

Sweater-Weather-FLAT-600px

and used the 2 1/2” square GO! die to cut out all the pieces, including all the blue in the background. it was a LOT of pieces!!

GO! Square-2 1/2" Multiples (55059)

I quilted a wavy zig zag to look like it was knitted.

Fabrics are  the mirage mottled fabrics from Connecting threads

I will pick a winner next Wednesday the 26th

 

(Today is hubby’s birthday BTW)
