McCall’s Quilting Associate Editor, Sherri Driver and Assistant Editor, Laura Roberts are both proud participants in the Quiltmaker 100 blocks issue. Take a look at their blocks below!
Sherri says, “I love stripes and try to find new and simple ways to use them in nearly everything I sew. I’m also crazy about Kaffe Fassett fabrics, so my block combines both. In this construction, the stripe fabric has bias on the edges of the units, but with careful handling, that won’t cause any problems.”
Per Laura, “Don’t you love ripples?! I do… especially when they start crossing through one another. I was the kid making waves in the bathtub to watch the ripples weave themselves together. So, that’s where I started, and somewhere along the way pink made an entrance into my block, with brown following quickly on pink’s heels. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out because I can visualize both the horizontal movement of the ripples and the vertical as well (as if they’re really lattice-like under the surface of the water). If I let my mind float away when designing, rather than try to force it in the direction I want it to go, I usually end up with something that I find pleasing.”
