There’s no better gift for a special occasion than a quilt made by a group of friends. The McCall’s Quilting team shows 2 such quilts in our new magazine America Quilts Together, given as gifts in support and well-wishing. Both are scrappy, with color schemes controlled by group guidelines agreed on before the cutting and sewing began. If you want to make a “team effort” quilt, why not start with the recipient’s favorite colors? Your circle of friends will be on their way to a successful gift quilt.
For the Cascade quilt, each staff member pieced a number of strippy, scrappy 10 1/2˝ squares, which were used to make the blocks and also cut into segments for the pieced border.
Acts of Kindness quilt is another strip-pieced beauty, made with cheerful fabrics, sure to please. Both patterns are in this issue now on newsstands.
