What is the most challenging quilt you have ever attempted? Do you enjoy a challenge, or shy away from it? These are the questions that we contemplated for this issue. For me, it’s a little of both. I was really curious to learn what other quilters think, so I asked our staff about the most challenging project they have ever attempted in McQ & A. Can you relate to their successes and failures? WIth challenging quilts as a goal, our pages are filled with quilts that look complicated, but many of them are easier than you might think. Filigree by Pam Boswell has a stunning woven look, yet it is made of simple patches and units. Connie Kaufman’s Walk Among The Stars also looks incredibly complex. Award-winning Claudia Pfeil graces our…

• your photos• ideas• stories Jeanet Wilson of Marion, North Carolina made a modern and enlarged version of Icicles (McCall’s Quilting January/ February 2019) for her nephew. She enlarged the pattern to be queen-sized, finishing at 96” x 96”. Crystal Dennis of Maricopa, Arizona revised Lotus (McCall’s Quilting March/April 2019) to a nine block setting to make a baby quilt for her friend Jane’s grandchild.

• your questions• our answers Tricia Patterson Group Editorial Director Although I love foundation piecing, English paper piecing, and hand appliqué, I’m really not a fan of quilts that require a lot of cuts using templates. I don’t have the patience for all that cutting, even with the help of a ruler and rotary cutter. I started a wonderful quilt with a favorite William Morris fabric a year ago. I stashed the project away for another day after cutting out the 20th template. Eileen Fowler Associate Editor One of my first quilts was full of feathered stars.

A test block is helpful for working through…
