McCall’s Quick Quilts Feb/Mar
I have a great little snuggle quilt pattern in there. In fact, its called Home Front Snuggler. Its a fast pattern, fat quarter compatible, and finishes at 60″ square. Its the perfect size for the couch- specifically, for the kids cuddling up to you this winter on the couch. Kids don’t necessarily understand deployment, but hopefully this will bring them a little closer to their loved one while they are apart. Thank you for serving!

You’ll see this in the article- The quilt is quilted with the free motion flowers. Its really an easy technique and great alternative to meandering. Give it a try.
*Fabrics in the quilt are Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey + US Gov’t
