I'm officially published (McCall's)

I was so excited to see my quilt in the September/October issue of McCall's.   Here are the official pictures that I can share with you.

McCall's Quilting - September/October 2017

And do you want to see a picture of the quilt?  Here's a flat shot of the quilt that I call UP.


And here's the stylised shot which I love!  I think it's fabulous that the quilt is hanging on a staircase which of course will take you UP and see how the flying geese are pointing to the top right hand of the photo.

Fabulous shot of UP

After doing a couple of photo shoots with quilts myself, I can appreciate how hard it is to get a great shot of any quilt.  Whoever did the photography did an amazing job.

And if you haven't seen the magazine yet, here's the scoop -

Follow this link to check out the current issue of McCall's.

Here's the link if you want to check out my quilt specifically.    You can buy a digital copy of the quilt pattern.

Check out the spread in the actual magazine though because the editors tweaked my design for a couple of alternate looks and they really are fun!

And if you want to get the magazine, here's the information.

Subscription issues began shipping July 11, 2017. By July 25, 2017 the issue will be available on newsstands, as well as in print or digital download format on Quilt and Sew Shop

I'm thrilled to have my quilt appear in McCall's. The editors were fabulous to work with.  Thanks McCall's. 

The fabrics that I used in the collection are from Northcott.  The black background is Toscana 99.  The geese were made using Artisan Spirit Shimmer. There are multiple color ways available and a huge range of values/textures within each color way that it was easy to gradate the geese. 

I can't wait to get the quilt back to hang in my office. 

Have a super day!
