Big Rig in Print - January/February 2012 McCall's Quilting

I am happy to report that my first quilt pattern has been published in the January/February 2012 McCall's Quilting Magazine.  If you subscribe to the magazine you should have already received it, if you don't subscribe it should be at local newsstands and your local quilt shops!

The wall hanging quilt is called Amish Glow and can be found on pages 80-81 of the magazine. I used a pack of Blue Lagoon from Cherrywood Fabrics for the blues in this quilt,  the other fabric (Black, Grey, Pink) are Kona Solids.

McCall's also offers an up-sized version for a lap quilt as a free web download.

Here are a few close-up shots of the quilt and the quilting from the front.

Here are some views of the quilting from the back.

I quilted this on my HQ 16. The circles were quilted using the Pro-Stitcher on my machine and the in-th-ditch and grid quilting was accomplished with ruler work.

Stop by your local quilt shop to pick up a copy. If you are in New York City or passing through, stop by The City Quilter and pick up your copy while supplies last (and see the quilt!)

Thanks again to everyone at McCall's for making this happen!


  1. Wonderful quilt - love the design, the colors, and the back's wonderful, too!

  2. John, great quilt and how very exciting! Can't wait to watch what happens with you!

  3. I just saw this quilt on V's blog today and tracked it down here. I have a basketful of Cherrywoods perfect for it. Glad it's still on the web.
