Welcome back to Design Wall Monday! The editors who make McCall’s Quilting, Quilters Newsletter, and Quiltmaker magazines enjoyed their weekend stitching, and we hope you did too! Here’s what a few of our team members are working on in their home sewing spaces:
Managing editor Paula Stoddard shares, “Ever since I planned my wall of small quilts for my home sewing space, I can’t stop making small quilts. I.can’t.stop. There’s nothing like making a quilt from start to finish in 3 hours- it’s like a quilter’s high!
So now I’m planning a wall of small quilts for my office at work – it just makes me happy!”
Acquisitions editor Lori Baker reports, “Sketch and I worked on a string-pieced pickle dish quilt. Sketch’s job is to hold things down so they don’t fly off of the cutting mat.
I love string piecing when I’m making scrap quilts. It uses lots of bits and pieces of fabric and you can turn the string-pieced fabric into anything you want.”
Editor Erin Russek writes, “We have a word-based quilt in an upcoming issue and I just fell in love with these alphabet blocks. I had some cute fabric that I just had to use to make a name quilt. I think it needs some applique though…”
That’s it from us for this Design Wall Monday. Check out our progress by reading previous Design Wall Monday blog posts here. And visit the McCall’s Quilting Facebook page and post photos of YOUR work to join the fun and the conversation. We’ll see you there! #designwallmonday
