Well, perhaps it’s not quite spring yet, but our newest issue of McCall’s Quilting will certainly help soothe any upcoming symptoms of spring fever!
Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith’s Gentle Dawn bed quilt pattern shown in the background of the cover is like a fresh spring breeze, and perfect for a wedding quilt or bedroom redecorating project.
Create your own early blossoms as you stitch up Erin Russek’s lovely Rose of Erin floral appliqué throw quilt pattern.
Looking for a fun smaller project? Gather up some new charm squares from your local quilt shop or scraps from your stash and make a few of my Les Biscornus pincushions. Step-by-step photos will show you how to make them from start to finish. With the Hourglass version, you’ll have enough scraps left over to make 3 more for quilting friends—try different buttons to make each one unique!
The cheery April in Paris lap quilt pattern by Rebecca LoGiudice will chase the rain away with sweet “parapluies” (umbrellas)! Rebecca used some of the scraps left over to design yet another cutie, Piccadilly Square—click here to download it now as a FREE Web Bonus.
