It may be only September, but this is a great time to start planning your holiday sewing projects. The McCall's Quilting November/December 2015 issue is shipping subscription issues now and will be available on the newsstands at the end of this month. This festive issue has 15 holiday projects and one of those projects is a quilt I have designed with my Gossamer fabrics.
The Snow and Shadow quilt is a 70-1/2" x 80-1/2" quilt made with Gossamer fabrics and Pure Elements from Art Gallery Fabrics. This is a great quilt for year-round appeal. In the winter it takes on a frosty look with angles and points. For spring and summer this has a more nautical look of beach glass and waves. McCalls Kits are available for this quilt while supplies last.

Cloth napkins are great anytime of the year but especially fun around the holidays. With all the fabulous printed cottons out there you can easily make napkins to go with any holiday or home decor look.
