The new issue of McCall’s Quilting is here! As thoughts turn to warmer weather, the bright colors used in these quilts will inspire you to be creative with our featured designs.
The Conceived in Liberty bed quilt pattern is a traditional quilt inspired by the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg address. You can also get the look of a much-loved antique with the Indigo Trail lap quilt pattern.
The bright colors in the Summer Breeze lap quilt pattern inspire you to add to the sense of movement with spiral quilting. Does a fun, cool, colorful kit sound good to you? Boho Girl is the epitome of on-trend style! A limited quantity of kits for this gorgeous design is available now at our Quilt and Sew Shop.
Are summer picnics your inspiration? Our Crab Shack place mat and napkin patterns are just the thing to brighten summer meals. If you’re an appliqué fan, you can bring the garden indoors with Every Bloomin’ Thing. Looking to make an instant heirloom? Harlequin is a stunning quilt and is available in a kit, too. Lady Violet, a beautiful feminine lap quilt, makes everyday a bit more lovely. This is another of our fabulous kits, available while supplies last.
