Look at These Gorgeous Greens!

This just in…Stephanie Dell’Olio, president and fearless leader of our retail division, couldn’t help but notice the spike in orders for NEW AGED MUSLINS, and in particular this gorgeous selection of green tones along the center of the swatch card.  The muted, subtly shaded effect of AgedMuslinGREENSthese “not-quite-solid” muslins makes them perfect for life-like appliqued leaves and stems.

We already  know that floral applique projects are big now, so  in part that might explain it, but we always love to hear about your other creative uses for our basics. Applique? Backgrounds? Sashings? Fashion?  Do you mix them with contemporary prints or reproductions, or maybe use them in place of true solids?

In fact, that would be a fun giveaway:  Comment below to tell us how you’ve used our NEW AGED MUSLINS for the chance to win this swatch card (you’ll love this giveaway — the swatches are huge!)  We’ll hold a random drawing next Tuesday, February 3!

  1. Love the muted colors of these fabrics- good for applique and also a different look to an amish quilt – they need to be in everyones stash !!!!

  2. I can’t believe these fabrics aren’t in my stash. I need them. They look to be a great addition with those awesome colors…need to shop soon.

  3. I would love the chance to work with these beautifil muslins. The colors are beautiful!

  4. Oh my goodness, those are absolutely beautiful! I love 9 patches so I could see myself making a double 9 patch quilt with these fabrics. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  5. I’ve used them for stems and leaves too! I’ve been wanting a lot of color lately, so I mix it up with ok k for something bright in easy charm square quilts. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Love the new colors! Would enjoy creating with these for several different projects – applique, quilts, wall hangings – the list goes on and on!

  7. Marcus Aged Muslins have been one of my favorite fabrics for quite a while. I’ve used them for applique, piecing, and background combined with a Civil War repro fabric. I just purchased some to use in an effort to replicate an antique applique/pieced quilt I keep seeing on Pinterest! They are very nice to hand quilt, and can’t beat the price. I do have one suggestion, put the identifying number code in the selvedge. Some of the difference in several shades is very subtle, and since I have to shop online (can’t find them anywhere near where I live), it’s difficult to always get the shade I’m wanting. Love all Marcus fabrics, but these are my favs (at the moment!).

  8. WOW! Love the new colors. I’ve always been a fan of your aged muslin. Perfect for mixing with reproductions to get the vintage look. What fun to use one of the new colors for a background or piecing. Appliqué on it would really pop and be so fresh!

  9. What gorgeous colors! I’ve only used the tans and naturals for backgrounds but would love to use some of these yummy colors for applique.

  10. I have a “layer cake ” of aged muslins that I am combining with Paula Barnes prints in a rail fence design. Would love even more!

  11. Oh my, how did I miss these?!
    Love this subtle texture and colors shown are just so gorgeous! I would (and I will!) definitely use them instead of solids to get that subtle texture in quilts…but, oh yeah – some gorgeous blouses too…

  12. I have only used the tea dyed muslins, but would love to work with these gorgeous colors. Using them as sashings could really make the quilt pop! Thanks for the giveaway.

  13. I love the aged muslin’s and have mostly used them as backgrounds for stitchery, applique and occasionally in piecing. I also love the aged canvas–I’m using it for a background on a wool applique project and it supports the wool wonderfully. I’ve never tried the colors–they look yummy!
