When summer winds down and the kids go back to school and that first autumn nip is in the air, you know what you’re going to want to do? QUILT! That’s right, fall is quilting season and the new September/October 2016 issue of McCall’s Quilting magazine is packed with 14 fabulous quilt patterns for fall stitching. Let’s take a look:
Sharon Denney Parcel is our “cover girl” with her colorful Carnival lap quilt. I become a more ardent fan of Sharon’s quilts with every design she submits. Her color palette tends to run deep and strong, and Carnival is no exception. Plus, she has a unique way with patchwork, turning relatively simple blocks and units into absolutely stunning quilts. Sharon’s machine quilting on this one is awesome, too!
House of Blue by Christine Stainbrook is as traditional as can be, with a sweet bit of color whimsy that totally sets this design apart. Would you want to live in a red house, or the blue? Either way, you’ll enjoy every minute working on this fun pattern.
If you have a stack of fat quarters and no ideas for using them, consider the Crossing Paths lap quilt designed by Sandra Clemons. This beginner-friendly quilt pattern changes 20 fat quarters into a tempting sofa quilt in no time!
There are 11 more unique, exciting quilt patterns in this issue. You can preview all of them on our website, or in a fun all-quilts video we hope you enjoy.
