Shoo Fly Quilt

So I was able to whip this out today and absolutley LOVE the pattern! Not so impressed w/my own work but I'm working on that lol! 

I love this pattern so much that I'm making one with Christmas fabric as we speak!

This is from the McCall's Quick Quilts magazine, current issue and it truly is a breeze!  My older daughter liked it so much that I'm making one for her for Christmas in her favourite colour, purple.

Still trying to decide whether or not it needs a border but in the magazine it only had white binding and backing and that's it!  Btw, I made this with one Moda Jelly Roll in the 30's Repro fabrics, my FAV!  LOVE the 30s Repros!


  1. I love 1930's fabrics too. I am making the pillowcases and the circle quilt from the 30's fabrics. I got a whole bunch of layer cakes from someone on Etsy. As to your finishing your UFOS, that is a good thing to do. I normally do that before I start a new project. Good luck!

  2. Oh! I saw those layer cakes and when I went back to get them they were GONE! Must've been YOU, Micki! LOL! I can't finish a project and then start another, I have several going at once, then finish them at once then start several more ... I have Quilter's ADD LOL!
