time to celebrate!

When there is a big event like a wedding, graduation, or baby, quilters make and give quilts. If you are like me, sometimes you don’t give yourself enough time to finish said quilt, but that is a conversation for another day! Today we are talking about quilts for gift giving occasions. This issue is packed full of beautiful quilts to make and give. If you love appliqué, don’t miss Garden Wedding by Barb Eikmeier. It is a classic that is destined to become an heirloom. Speaking of heirlooms, we have three quilts that are remakes of family quilts by Abigail Dolinger, Bev Getschel, and Connie Kaufman. Don’t misss the photos of the original antiques and their miniature versions. If you want an interesting twist on a memory quilt, take a look at…

• trends• tools• cool stuff Steam-A-Seam 2 Quilter›s rejoice! The Warm Company’s game-changing fusible web, Steam-A-Seam 2, is back and better than ever! It now comes in sheets (some even pre-printed with letters) and bolts, and is ideal for fabric collage. First, you fuse your fabric to the web, cutting the shape as needed. Then peel off the web’s paper backing and stick the shape to your surface. Until you fuse everything in place, it’s completely repositionable, giving you plenty of opportunity to tweak placement. Hello Gorgeous Eco Pouch Set Stow your stuff in these colorful zippered Eco Pouches and stay organized everywhere you go. Pouches are made of recycled plastic that is tough enough to handle even sharp quilting, sewing, and art tools. (They are also great for pens, jewelry, cosmetics, coins… the…

• your photos• ideas• stories Sydney Brown of Port Matilda, Pennsylvania was asked by a friend to make a wall-hanging for her daughter’s new home. Sydney used a variety of quilting cottons and batiks to make Winter Winds (McCall’s Quilting January/February 2018). Sydney hand pieced and hand quilted the wall hanging with a lot of love. Irmgard Lee of State College, Pennsylvania used over forty different fabrics in her rendition of Turning Leaves (McCall’s Quilting September/October 2018)! This beautiful scrappy wall hanging was quilted by Kathryn Park Miller. Mary Houlden of British Columbia, Canada loved Anniversary Gift (McCall’s Quilting March/April 2018) the minute she saw it. She gathered her batik fabrics and went straight to work on paper piecing the blocks. It went together perfectly! She had her quilt top quilted by Janice…

the silk road

From either end of the Silk Road, from the exotic lands of Cathay to the splendours of Byzantium, the rich patterns of Asia have inspired textile designers over the ages. Composed in mosaic like blocks of color these canvases are a joy to stitch and would look equally good in traditional or contemporary interiors. The kits themselves come complete with everything you need: the 100% cotton canvas printed in full color, all the 100% pure new wool required, a needle, a color chart and an easy to follow guide to get you underway. Only one simple stitch is used throughout. Needlepoint is a pleasant way to unwind and it’s a pastime that can give a lifetime of pleasure. If you haven’t tried it before one of these kits would be a…

• your questions• our answers Tricia Patterson Group Editorial Director I love the knowing look on my family’s faces when they receive a package with a whole quilt inside, simply wrapped, in plain paper with no box. They can already feel the love of the fabric. I have to confess, there are many times I gift my quilts as a design sketch with swatches of fabric, or partially-made blocks, or a stack of blocks. Those quilts are received with a “That’s my Mom. Lots of ideas and not enough time to implement!” Denise Starck Art Director When I box up the quilt I am giving, I fold it so that the label is the first thing they see when it gets opened. For me, it sets the tone and expresses the sentiment of the gift. I…
