New Year, new quilt patterns! Start 2015 right with all the fresh, inviting quilts featured in the January/February issue of McCall’s Quilting. These designs range from on-trend to classic, miniature to big bed size, and beginner to advanced skill level. There’s something here for every quilter!
Our 2015 series quilt pattern, Cottage Romance, begins in this issue with the Pinwheel Galaxy Block. This 24″ block centers the medallion-style bed quilt and gets you started on the project in grand style. A limited number of kits are available for this gorgeous quilt, which features Marcus Fabrics from 2 different collections by Faye Burgos.
This issue also marks the debut of two new regular columns, Mini Madness and I Love This Quilt! A new miniature quilt design will be featured in each issue, complete with pattern and gorgeous photography. And the back page of each issue will showcase a quilt selected as a favorite by a McCall’s Quilting staff member. First up in I Love This Quilt!…art director Ellie Brown discusses why she loves the vintage Sunny Days design. The pattern for the quilt is a FREE download!
If winter weather has you feeling blue, imagine the smile on your face as you work on the cheery Rows of Posies quilt! Neither sleet nor snow nor gloom of night will be able to dampen the spirits of anyone cuddled up in this adorable quilt designed by Christine Stainbrook.
Emerald Dawn is one of those wonderful quilts that looks super complicated, but is actually really easy to piece. Fussy-cut special prints give the look of pieced panels, and our pattern walks you step by step through fabric placement to achieve the ombré effect of the sample quilt, designed by Patti Carey of Northcott.
I could go on and on about the beautiful projects in this issue, but better yet, why don’t you preview all the quilts for yourself? I think you’ll agree this is one magazine you definitely want to add to your collection! And don’t forget to download all of this issue’s FREE web bonus quilt patterns for your personal library.
