McCall's Quick Quilts February/March 2016

I have a quilt featured in the McCall's Quick Quilts February/March 2016 issue, called Sunset.


Most of my quilt designs are made first, then I find fabric to fit it, but for this one, I designed this quilt specifically for the fabric. I wanted to take a modern approach and thus why I choose to define each row for a specific color. I felt this defined the quilt boldly.

Other ideas to consider when choosing a fabric for this quilt... You could still use this design to place blocks at random or perhaps make two-color quilt. Even reverse the tone by making the triangles of the block light and the background dark. You could pull out your low-volume stash of fabric and scrap in the background. There's so many possibility to make this quilt unique to you.

If you so choose to make this quilt, then I would love to see it! Feel free to share/tag me on facebook and/or instagram.

Meanwhile, don't forget, I'm running the Block of the Week.
