McCall's Quick Quilts

Many of you may read McCall's Quick Quilts.  In addition to the articles and patterns in the magazines, they offer free additional patterns at their websites so check out your favorite magazines sites for these offers.  Terry Albers of Hedgehog Quilts has a quilt she designed and sewed in Quick Quilts and here is a link for a free pillow pattern that matches it.  The quilt was quilted by yours truly, just tooting my horn a bit.
I think many of you will remember Terry when she came and did a great presentation of her quilts for our guild, probably a couple years ago now.  She has designed for quite a number of years and has recently been really busy designing patterns for many major fabric companies including Thimbleberries, which this featured quilt was made from. 
As a really informative feature of this pillow pattern, Terry shows you how to make your own chenille for the fuzzy part of your pillow or quilt, way too sweet and soft, and you can apply this method to many other quilting projects.  Think babies, or young people or anyone who loves soft fuzzy stuff...

As a tip for those of you read this blog and others, if you want to go back in time and read posts that you may have missed, just go to bottom of the page and see Older Posts or sometimes it says Archives and you should be able to access those posts.
