The August/September issue of McCall's Quick Quilts is now in stores with one of my quilts! This is my first pattern to appear in a magazine. I am super excited! They took such lovely pictures of it as you can see.
They gave it a lovely name, Bed of Roses. I really love this quilt. It is a scrappy quilt made out of a nine patch block and an hourglass block. They complement each other so nicely. It is also really versatile. I made it out of fat quarters, but you could also make it out of a layer cake. The best part is that the squares for both blocks starts out the same size so you can start with any size square.
Of course, some sizes are easier to divide into thirds for the nine patch than others. The layer cake for example is 10" - not divisible by three, but you could cut 3" of 3.25" strips and have just a hair leftover with the nine patch block and you would just square up the hourglass block to the size of the nine patch and there you go!
The border print is a gorgeous pink floral from Aviary. I put wool batting in it. Love wool batting!
McCall's has the pattern (throw size) is available online as a web extra too, so HERE'S THE LINK!
Just an FYI about the pattern. I do make the hourglass a little different than they explain. The way I do it is explained in THIS TUTORIAL that has a horrid picture of the quilt on it that I haven't gotten around to changing.
Hope you like it!
