Set Sail and a Giveaway!!

Ahoy!!  Here's a fast and fun project that's perfect for all of you nautical types...

It's my Set Sail pillow, and you can find the pattern in the August/September 2018 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts, available now from The Quilting Company or wherever magazines are sold.  And look, there's my pillow in the bottom left hand corner of the cover!

This simple pillow was inspired by my family's summer vacations in Maine.  I love how the horizon line between sea and sky can be conveyed so simply by using two different shades of blue for the background fabrics.   And the little paper pieced sailboats are a breeze to make! 

I'm also excited about this issue of McCall's Quick Quilts because it features my short essay—"Back to School with Each New Quilt"— about what "back to school" means to me both as a mother and a quilter.

To celebrate, I'm giving away two copies of the August/September 2018 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts.  To enter the giveaway, head over to Instagram, then like the postfollow me and tag a friend in the comments section of the contest photo.  Make sure to enter by 11:00pm EST on Friday, June 29th!

Good luck!
