Ringmaster Quilt and Pattern in McCall's Quilting Magazine!

Photo by McCall's Quilting
Introducing: The Ringmaster quilt.  An intricate looking pattern made with two blocks and straight seams that gives an illusion of curves.

Disclaimer:  Products used to make this quilt were given to me by Island Batik and Hobbs Batting.
The Ringmaster quilt and pattern appears in the new issue of McCall's Quilting magazine.  It's the March/April 2022 issue.  Ringmaster is on pages 26 through 31.

This is one of the two blocks in the quilt.  It's made with a combination of half square rectangles and foundation piecing.

I was able to cut out the half rectangle pieces with my Accuquilt Go, but the pattern has another easy method, if you don't own this die. 

I used the new Interurban fabric collection by Island Batik.  This gorgeous fabric should be arriving in local quilt shops now.  Be sure to stop by Island Batik Ambassador Claudia Porter's blog on February 15th to see the full range of fabrics and the amazing quilt she made with this collection for the Row by Row blog hop.

  1. Neat! I love the blue in this. What dies are you using for the half rectangles? I've been wanting a half rectangle die and I thought there was one in the cube companion, but I think I was wrong.

    1. It's an older die, "triangles in square - 3" finished", #55027. Have a great day!
