Featured Fabrics

McCall's Quilting Editors used assorted Moda fabric collections to make this quilt.

Oops, We Goofed
The editors apologize for an error in the cutting instructions for Block H. The four #2 green print 3 7/8" squares should be cut in half diagonally to make 8 half-square triangles, not cut in half twice diagonally as was printed in the pattern.
The corrected pattern is available as a free download here.


This quilt is patterned in the McCall’s Quilting special issue below.  Click here to purchase a copy.

I too have not received anything only been told waiting for fabric. This is insane. Fatquartershop.com has the fabric, but you have to order a min of 1/2 yard. So its not very conducive to us who need less than that. Shame on you McCalls for wasting our time and money, we now have two several blocks of nothing!
RE: Sparkling Sampler
Patchworkqueen, I have passed your comment and contact information on to our customer service folks. You should hear from them directly. Again, we are so sorry for the long delays on this project.

Just talked to someone at McCall's and get the same answer.....trying to obtain the fabric!! Apparently my only option is to.....cancel the order. This is the most unprofessional company I have let with. Plus no one has been "in touch with me". Is anyone out there cancelling or just hanging tough? Patricia Muhy-Hupp
RE: Also missing Block fo the Months
Murphyhupp, I passed your information on to our customer service team just now. They should be in touch with you shortly. Many apologies for the delay on this BOM!
Also missing Block of the Monthsle
Wow! I thought it was just me. I also only received one block in July. I'm called them a couple of months go and they just said that everything would be sent soon. I guess I had better call them first thing tomorrow. I've never heard of such a thing! Order No 12271267
RE: Missing Months of BOM
Ann, I have passed your comment on to our customer service team. I am SO SORRY you have not heard back from them, but I'm sure you will after my email this morning.
Missing Months of BOM
Since I have never heard from your customer service I have to "assume" that you have no intention of filling my order. Therefore, I wish to cancel my order. I have learned my lesson about customer service at McCalls. Thank you. Ann
RE: Missing months
Jbdahmen, I have passed your contact information on to our Customer Service folks. They will get back to you directly. So sorry for the wait!
Missing months
I too have only received my first month. Also when I tried to log back in my email was not in the system. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Brenda Dahmen
Ann, I'm so sorry! Apparently when I passed Barb's info on to customer service, I didn't include yours. They have it now and you should hear from them very shortly. So many apologies!!
Dear Kathy and Barb, I have not heard anything about how my order will be handled. I am disappointed that the blocks are not arriving in a timely manner and am concerned that the fabrics will not be the same as originally pictured. I look forward to hearing from you if there is a solution to my problem. Ann Widmann
Barb, I have passed your comments on to the customer service team. They should be in contact with you shortly. So sorry you're still waiting for your block kits!
Sorry, I did not order the backing. Just the blocks. Barb Vogelpohl
Ditto comment below. Did not get backing. Rec'vd block 1 then nothing. Barb Vogelpohl barbvog22@yahoo.com for my address.
RE: Ordered
Ann, I have passed your question on to our customer service folks. Someone will get back to you shortly! So sorry for the delay.

My order # is 122384819. I ordered the backing with a disount offered. My order was placed on 7/21/15. When will my order be sent? Thank you for your help in this matter. AMW
