Blooma Quilt & McCall’s Magazine

Last fall I was asked by Blend Fabrics to create a quilt for their booth at Fall Market using the Blooma collection by Jessica Swift.

I never shared the full quilt because at Market the quilt was picked up by McCall’s Quilting Magazine to appear in an future issue! I was so excited!

And that issue has just been released: this quilt and accompanying pattern are featured in the McCall’s Quilting May/June 2013 issue which is on news stands now.

Here is the quilt in full. It’s called Boho Girl and it looks so pretty in the magazine spread. Kits are also available for this quilt.
And while I was looking for the images I took of the quilt last fall before I sent it off to Blend Fabrics, I found this good “behind the quilt blog” shot of my minions helping me with a super-professional photo shoot. I think it was on a night when we had four other things going on, but I wanted to snag some quick pictures before I needed to send it off the next morning. They are such patient, good sports. I love my minions.

    I really like the colors in the quilt. Congrats on the magazine and I can't wait to see more of your work. I have only made one or two quilts and I know all the hard work that goes into it. Thanks for sharing!

    Well done Amy! Congratulations that is so great. I wonder if that magazine will be available here in Australia, I'd buy a copy just for your quilt :)

    Love the faces on those minions! :-) Quilt is really cute too! I usually just have feet or arms showing. :-) Like the full bodies shot better! K-

    I saw this in the magazine and thought, "Good for Amy, for getting published here." Great fabrics, but I also recognized that this would be a great quilt in many different fabrics. Congratulations!
