McCall’s Quilting — Carnaby Street
Today in the mail came McCall’s Quilting’s newest issue — January/February 2012.
Inside this issue is a quilt that I love — Carnaby Street!
I love to see what McCall’s does with my quilts!
Here’s a picture of the full quilt from McCall’s.
The fabric is England Swings by Rebekah Merkle for Timeless Treasures.
It was a fun design challenge to work with this fabric. I first worked with the digital images and came up with a design that I loved. Then I was told that the fabric was a much larger scale than I thought I was working with. It took a few more designs before I came up with this finished product, but working through things like that is part of the creative process. I love the result!
This is a large quilt. It’s almost 88″ square. Because of the large scale fabric, the blocks had to be large, and the quilt is actually fairly quick to make.
So . . . do you know where Carnaaby Street is? I had to look it up. I’m not cool enough to know things like that.
