Take a Peek

I have been blessed again to be featured in McCall’s Quick Quilts magazine, April/May 2010 issue. This is a “Layer Cake” friendly design or a great way use up pieces in your stash! 
I originally named this design, “Square Dance” but McCall’s renamed it “Mom’s Bouquet”. The beautiful fabrics I used are from Moda called “Eden” designed by Lila Tueller.
This is a super fast project and can be cut and sewn up in a day...REALLY! We have made up this quilt in several different fabric lines and it looks great with any fabric. Hopefully you have a subscription to McCall’s Quick Quilts but if not, this issue should be on newsstands now.

I want to thank my staff as well...Donna, thank you so much for being my “sewing angel” and always there to sew up the things I can never get to. And Janet, thank you for your beautiful machine quilting! These two ladies are the backbone of my business!!! Also a big thank you to Beth at McCall’s!
If you happen to make this quilt, please send us a photo of you and “Mom’s Bouquet” / “Square Dance” to I’d like to feature you on my blog and also Gidget will send you a quilting gift from my quilt shop. This offer is good through the end of July 2010.


  1. This looks like such a great pattern. I'll have to pick up a copy next time I'm at the book store. Thank you for sharing the name of the mag you're featured in....and congrats. That's a real honor.

  2. What a beautiful quilt. Looks like the pattern would be something I could do. I'll have to pick it up.

  3. So pretty Jere'e! . . . (I like your name for it too!)
    I love the fabrics. . . & can't wait to see what other come up with too!
    xo, Bren
