When I hear the words a few of my favorite things. The Sound of Music comes to mind with Julie Andrews in the mountains singing. I love musicals. My daughter and I love to belt out Broadway show tunes. We can’t sing but we sure have fun. Recently I combined a few of my favorite things. Then stitched them up into a scrap happy quilt for McCall’s Quilting.
What did I include? There are pinwheels, friendship stars and nine patches. You may remember seeing my scrappy blocks. I did a post a while back that included tutorials. It will give you details on how you can make many of these blocks using your AccuQuilt Go.
I combined these classics with a giant scrappy heart and more scrappy traditional quilt blocks. Next I incorporated them into a jumbo log cabin style quilt. And called it Keep the Home Fires Burning.
My hubby was a good sport and helped me take a few photos after a recent snow storm. Winter is also one of my favorite things.
What are your favorite things? If colorful scrappy quilts are one of them. You’ll be sure to want to pick up the latest issue of McCall’s Quilting. It’s jammed pack with great quilts to make. Plus this issue has a quilted jacket. I think I may have to make me one of those.
