    I love seeing all the different styles of projects offered. The “Sprockets” quilt has me intrigued as to how it goes together and the “Up” quilt has me wanting to make flying geese!

  2. Betsy says:

    Up. I struggle with flying geese so this would give me an opportunity to practice

  3. nancy lewis says:

    Oh wow, they all look like they’d be fun to make. The Hocus Pocus quilt has really caught my eye. I have been wanting to make a snail’s trail quilt, and this would be great for Halloween.

    “UP” is going to be on my to do list for sure, it is stunning!

    The moment I saw the Hocus Pocus table runner, I knew I wanted to make it! I have a bundle of fabric that would be perfect for it. McCall’s patterns are always so inspiring!
