McCall's Quilting: Series Quilt Revealed! AURIfil GIVEAWAY!

I'm so pleased to announce the publication of the July/August 2012 issue of McCall's Quilting. My quilt, called Sugar Roses, is shown on pages 28-32.

Sugar Roses is a series quilt I designed specifically for McCall's Quilting, and the pattern will be featured in a total of 4 consecutive issues. Pick up a copy now for Part I of this 4-part series.

My favorite AURIfil colors, as seen in my interview on AURIfil BUZZ. See my free quilted pillow pattern!

Sugar Roses was made using Sugar Hill by Tanya Whelan, plus a few fabrics from Designer Essentials, all for FreeSpirit . . .

Fresh and pretty, right? LOVE Tanya's fabrics!

I made a second quilt using the gorgeous reds, tans, and grays combination of French General's Rouenneries Deux for Moda. McCall's Quilting generously provided it as a free Web Bonus (you'll need to purchase the magazine for pattern instructions). If you prefer the look of this beautiful French Country-inspired collection, look for yardage at your local quilt shop or favorite online shop.

Next week, I'll share with you a few snapshots of the progression of the applique border I did on the Rouenneries Deux version.

Stacey, thanks! These fabrics are so beautiful in person, too. I chose the more vibrant red colorways to pop. I'll be talking about the Moda cloth I used for the applique next week!
