    Hi, Shavonna!
    Betsy McCall was a long time before McCall’s Quilting began publication. We aren’t affiliated with that McCall’s magazine, but we remember her, too.

    I’m interested in making a scrappy batik quilt in blues, greens, purples. I’m afraid of it being too busy, however. Is there a way to give the eye a place to rest in a busy type of quilt? Are there patterns that would work? I don’t want it to look too chaotic, but I love the scrappy look. (An oxymoron of a dilemma?)

  8. Carol Hupp says:

    There are such an unlimited aray of color possibilities along with unlimited patterns. Where do you start and how do you stay focused on completing a quilt without starting on another that has caught your imagination?

  9. Do you think big prints are appropriate For Log Cabin Quilts?
