It's Summer Time and I love a good quilt-along! McCall's is hosting the Peace Cottage by designer Lynn Lister. And I'm all in for this one! I'll post my progress here on the blog each week and I invite you to quilt along with me!
This pattern was originally published in 2013 in a 3 part series. If you don't have your old issues never fear! You can go right to their website and get a copy of the pattern in a PDF download here: Peace Cottage Quilt Pattern by Lynn Lister
Now this quilt can be made in any colorway you wish, if you love the one pictured above, McCall's has a kit already prepared for you and you can make your quilt to look exactly as shown. You can purchase that quilt kit here: Peace Cottage Quilt Along Kit
McCall's has recorded 12 video tutorials to walk you through the process of constructing this quilt. They are free and are posted at the bottom of the page here: http://www.mccallsquilting.com/PeaceCottage Each week a new video will be released to take you through the next step in the process. The videos will be up for a limited time, so take advantage of them. They run from now through August 26th, with a new release each week.
Here is the introduction video...
Lynn's quilt has been made in a few other colorways to give you some ideas. Here are some of her quilts...
Above is the one that originally caught my eye in the magazine.
This is Marie Moore from Canada and her two different colorways, she is featured in McCall's article on their website. So there are lots of options. Don't you love her "winter" colorway!
I have sorted through bins, clearing out old fabrics to make room for new and plan to use them up in this quilt. It will have some surprises and some pops of interest in the scrappy bits and I think that will be just fun. It's going to be an eclectic variety.
I'll be pulling some more greens and blues but I think I have the rest sorted for now. As we go along I may add or subtract fabrics.
So I invite you! Come Quilt Along with McCall's and let's build our Peace Cottage quilts together! Feel free to post your fabric selection in the comments section below, I would love to see your choices!
