A 3-Hour Quilt and Another Free E-Book!

McCalls has again inspired me with their free e-Book, Modern Quilt Patterns. The quilt you see above is one I made from this little e-book and is called Lemon Squeezy. (The one in the book is much prettier, but I used strips of scraps I had in my scrap bin.) I made this quilt in 3 hours from start to finish! (Most of my strips were leftovers and already cut.)
Sugarplum was fascinated with this quilt. She thought it was hers!
Your quilting is done as you sew, so after sewing all the strips, all you have to do is square up and bind! Need a quick crib quilt? This is a good candidate!
This little book is only 10 pages long, but the three patterns inside will inspire you with the spring colors and easy, modern designs - Baubles and Beads (a modern square within a square design), Rainbow Rhythm (a contemporary take on half square triangles) and Lemon Squeezy (the quilt as you go strip quilt).
Here is where you can get your free download! Give it a try! You have nothing to lose!
  Until next time..... Bee Blessed!


  1. I think your quilt is beautiful, nice warm colors with that perfect binding, well done. Jane

  2. Linda thanks for the link on that e bock -- those are great patterns. But I prefer your version to the one in the directions wit the scrappy look. Great job.

  3. What a cute little quilt and it seems your "friend" likes it too. I just downloaded the free ebook. Thanks for the link. I see a "Lemon Squeezy" quilt in my future ;)! Perfect for leftover jelly roll strips and other scraps.

  4. I agree..... your fabrics are prettier! Thanks for the link!

  5. Wow....a quilt in 3 hours!! It would take me that long just to cut it out!! ha!

    This is cute and colorful!!

  6. Hi Linda!!! Beautiful quilt!!! Love your Lemon Squeezy and your Sugarplum!!! Thanks for the link up!!!

  7. Sugarplum is uber cute and really does love this cheerful beautiful quilt. Thank you for sharing this free ebook link. Your work is fabulous. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

  8. I love the colors you chose for your quilt! Well, done....=)

  9. I love your quilt much, much more than McCall's version and I think Sugarplum agrees. The colors you uses are very happy. I would smile every time I looked at it. Thank you for the link to the e-book. Love the idea of quilt as you go.

  10. I like your quilt a lot better than theirs. ;-) I think it looks better with the smaller prints and "solids" and the pops of red are great. Actually, I'm glad I saw yours first, otherwise I might not have been inspired to download the e-book. I did download it, though, and now I have a mental note to know the types of prints that I prefer it done in. :-)

    That's a cute cat too, btw. :-)

  11. Thanks for sharing the free download quilt link - since I'm a new quilter I need all the simple quilts patterns I can get!

    All the best for a great Sunday,

  12. I love everything about this sweet quilt! I want to quilt, it's on the to-do list - now I just need to DO IT!

  13. I so want to make one for a fundaraiaer raffle.. And a quick quilt is right up my alley. :)
    Unfortunately I am not able to get the link to work. Since others have been able to download it, it must be operator error.

    If I can't get this link to work, I will make a biscuit quilt instead. I KNOW I can get that link to work. lol
