Moccasin Block of the Month Club - December

Dec 1, 2015
Pin It
Fabric is Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for my version of the BOM.
Today the last pattern for the Moccasin BOM goes out.  All the blocks are done. It is time to take those ordinary blocks and turn them into "Shazam!"  A quilt top that gets your attention.  :)
I truly am in love with this quilt.  I gave a talk last week at a guild and mentioned that this quilt is my fourth child.  Your feelings don't need to be nearly that intense, but I sure hope you love this quilt and have enjoyed the BOM.  I am sad it's the end.  But never fear!  There are two more Moccasin posts before this chapter closes.
Late December 2015 - Full frontal of my Moccasin quilt.  The finished shots.
January 2016 - Highlights of your work.  I'd like to feature some of your Moccasin quilts, so be sure to take pics of your quilt tops and hashtag #moccasinbom on Instagram or add your top pic to the flickr group.

Sunday Sunrise Table Runner in McCall's Quilting Magazine

Nov 24, 2015
Pin It
This cheery table runner is called Sunday Sunrise and it is featured in the Jan./Feb. issue of McCall's Quilting magazine.  It even made the cover!
This fun little project is easy to sew up and utilizes one of my favorite block making concepts.  For this runner, a traditional quilt block is modernized by inverting the colors in adjacent blocks.  An entire sampler is dedicated to this block fun in my book, Sister Sampler Quilts.
RJR Cotton Supreme Solids in warm and sunny shades of yellow bring this small quilt to life!  Pick up your copy of McCall's to see this pattern and others starting today 11/24/15 on newsstands.  Sunday Sunrise is also available as a kit.
I had some fun with the photography on this one...
