New from Nancy Rink for Studio 37 Fabrics: ON PLUMBERRY LANE
Her recent blog post shares a bit of her inspiration for the group, and how she’s used the collection so far. By coincidence, I spotted this pretty little quilt on Pati’s desk yesterday — it just begged to be Instagrammed, and it bears repeating here. (Be sure to follow us on IG @marcusfabrics, if you don’t already…) And look for the fabrics in quilt shops beginning January!
Well, Pati just celebrated her first Halloween as a new grandma, and of course, she had to share the results with us ; )
“Last minute mama –getting Celine’s first Halloween costume ready for the big day. Of course, Grandma had to step in and finish up — “no sewing involved”. If you remember the baby quilt she started earlier this year, you’ll notice a distinct theme in the color palette… Nice work, Pati!

Were you among the lucky recipients of a signed copy of Tributes and Treasures? The new book by Paula Barnes (seated right) and Mary Ellen Robison (seated left) has won rave reviews already, and we enjoyed hosting a book signing in their honor today at Booth 1022. Fans stopped by the entire time to meet and greet the new Martingale authors. ..I hope Mary Ellen got a cool pen for the occasion as I suggested ; )
