Its such a thrill when you get a project published in a magazine...my 'Welcome Spring' wall quilt
is in the March/April issue of McCalls Quilting..
This magazine is packed with a wonderful variety of quilting projects, there is something for everyone inside.
I had just started planning and sketching the design for McCalls Quilting when I injured my finger and as you know I was out of action for a few months. Donna one of our store tutors kindly came to my rescue and made the sample for me. I selected the fabrics from an assortment of my RJR fabric collections, the background is pieced cream tonal prints which gives a lovely scrappy feel to the quilt.
Donna and I played with the final layout of the shapes on the background.... we quite liked the bunnies at the top...
but settled in the end for the layout from my original sketch.
Donna chose to do fusible machine blanket stitch and she worked with Aurifil threads.
