McCall’s Quilting: Pine Burr Made Modern

I am so excited to show you my version of the antique quilt pattern, the pine burr.  It is in the May/June McCall’s Quilting that arrived in my mailbox Saturday.  This quilt has been as long time coming.  (The quilt is shown in miniature on the bottom left of the cover.) At least a dozen years…

Modern Mini Quilt Entry
