I'm a "Cover Girl" with Wizard's Chess

Or at least my quilt is.



I designed and made this quilt in December for McCall's Quick Quilts. I'm excited to see that it made the cover of the June/July 2017 issue!

On a shop hop last September I searched for black and white fabrics to use in a someday quilt. They seemed like the perfect fabrics to pair with Kaffe Fassett blue-toned fabrics for this quilt. It would look great using Kaffe Fassett reds as well. I even played around with traditional Civil War fabrics (scrappy) in combination with a black and cream checkerboard. 


You will be able to purchase the magazine in shops about May 1. Or it's available online now at McCall's Quick Quilts

I quilted it with my HQ Avante equipped with HQ Pro-Stitcher. I selected the Damask 2 edge-to-edge design from Wasatch Quilting. Here are some close-ups of the quilting.




For those inclined to stitch up this quilt, a pdf of the pattern is also available from McCall's Quick Quilts. And, as the magazine name implies, it is a quick quilt to make.

I love what I have seen so far. I find layer cakes are my favorite cut to work with.
