What a Great Looking Quilt!
I can hardly wait to start on this wonderful looking Quilt! I've only just seen it so I'm a little behind, its a good that I can do them at my own speed. :)
RE: How many different fabrics?
Johanne, as the title of the project suggests, you can make this one YOUR way! If you want to limit yourself to 8 fabrics, you can do so. However, most versions of this quilt feature many, many fabrics, since it's fun to pull coordinating prints from your stash as you sew along.
How many different fabrics?
Hi, I am not sure of how many different fabrics might be use. I have listened Second week and you have showed 8 differents colors for the outside borders. Does it mean that 8 color pattern are enough? Thank you.
Response to lezknit
The optional pattern for the larger version includes 4 blocks more than will be covered in the video. Complete illustrated instructions for the larger version are included in the America Quilts For the Home, Spring 2011 special issue, available at our Quilt and Sew Shop:
Love this quilt!
I love this quilt, and I really like the larger version, will there be any videos or help on how to make the outer blocks?
Make It Your Way
I just watched the first video of this series. I have been making quilts for a long time but I always welcome new ideas. The first free video has impressed me. I plan to watch all 12 episodes and keep the workshop videos in my e-library. The production is good and simple and the ladies are experienced. Thank you to McCall's for always providing quality products and responsible and well-known sponsors.
