fall for quilting

Fall is my favorite season. The crisp air, the leaves changing colors, I enjoy the way the air smells and I love Halloween. I certainly love the quilts! There is something so cozy about preparing for winter by making quilts. This issue has many cuddly quilts that you will want to make immediately. Two of my favorites utilize specialty fabrics that I personally cannot resist. Harvest Festival by Tailormade By Design is a quilt that has a lot of wow but is easy to make. They used those large metallic florals that I purchase and then wonder what to do with them. Do you do that too? This classic design is perfect for showcasing those delicious fabrics. Speaking of delicious fabrics, if you love ombré prints, then you will adore Divided…

• your photos• ideas• stories Susan Winkelstern of Mulliken, Michigan, has made Snowman Party (McCall’s Quilting January/February 2019). These cheery red, green, and white holiday fabrics are sure to bring warmth to the holiday season! Lindsay Ryder of Worthington, Ohio, made Vino Row (McCall’s Quilting May/June 2017) as a Christmas gift for her sister. Lindsay was inspired by batiks resembling red, white, and rose wines. As the mother of an infant, Lindsay enjoyed how quickly this pattern came together and was able to complete it during nap times! Trudy Lindermann of Cleveland, Wisconsin, was in need of a new fun and festive Christmas quilt.

• your questions• our answers Anissa Arnold Managing Editor I collect old blades in a spare plastic case that the rotary blades were initially packaged in and throw it away when its full. Vanessa Lyman Senior Content Developer I use a Ball jar to store my own dulled rotary blades, partially because I have a green one that is wide enough to hold them and is pretty. One day, when I have a stockpile, I’ll figure out how to recycle them. Tracy Mooney Editor After getting this question from Mavis, I looked into recycling options and found three options. First, to lengthen the life of your blades, you can mark your blades with a “P” and use them for cutting paper. Next, check with your local municipality to see if they accept and can recycle your blades. Finally, you…

Quilt Designed & Made by Jen Daly Skill Level Intermediate Finished Size 14" x 28" Finished Blocks 4 Block Y 7" x 7" 2 Block Z 5" x 6" NOTE: See Pattern Pull-Out Section for foundation sections. Planning Bring some happy charm to your décor with this homey piece that will look lovely on a table. Simple piecing and charming fabrics make this a project with a lot of heart; make one to keep and one–or several–to gift! Jen used scraps from her collection to make this table topper, so we offer yardage requirements for light and dark fabrics, rather than specific colors. For many of the patches, charm squares and fat eighths will be sufficient. Study the photo carefully if you want to recreate the quilt exactly. The piecing is basic, but there are lots of small pieces…

quilting cozy

It’s getting to be that time of year, when we start thinking about hunkering down under our cozy, comforting quilts, and I for one start to think longingly about flannel, Minky, and wool. These fabrics offer great texture and warmth for the season, but they may need a few modifications to your quilting style to make them look their best. These fabrics are so cuddly because they have a delicious fuzzy nap. The very thing that makes them perfect for cool weather can cause some problems while quilting. The nap itself can create greater friction with the thread. In order to avoid breaking thread, lengthen your stitch length a bit, between 10 and 12 stitches per inch. Fewer stitches per inch means fewer times that the thread has to punch through…
