Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well! I am happy to share a little about my I’m Blue For You quilt that is featured in the Feb/March 2017 McCall’s Quick Quilts magazine!
This is a super easy quilt to put together as you can easily use 5″ charm squares as your starting point. But fun thing about this is that with the very basic squares and half-square-triangle units, you can create a striking check mark effects with the quilt layout! :) You know me, I hardly ever design quilts with difficult to piece block elements.
I used the blue fabrics from Windham Fabrics’ Atlas collection. Check out the entire collection here, as they also have the same fabrics in tan colorways. And if you use the tan fabrics, your quilt will end up looking like this.
I quilted random straight lines at various angles across the width of the quilt using Aurifil’s Mako 50wt. The good thing about that is there is really no planning except for the plan of filling the quilt top with straight lines.
McCall’s Quilting blog features a post about my I’m Blue For You. Click here to find out my suggestions on different (and hopefully fun) ways to use this quilt design.
I have actually designed two more quilts using the same line for Windham Fabrics. You might check if your local quilt shops are selling the kits. If not, they might be able to order the kits for you from Windham Fabrics.

And now for the GIVEAWAY – Windham Fabrics are generally giving away three charm packs to US addresses. Leave a comment below between now and next Thursday, and I will pick three winners on Friday.
Thanks for stopping by, Friends! I hope you have a lovely rest of your week — can’t believe the weekend is already upon us!
