Brrrr…It’s still barely hovering around 40 degrees here in New York, not quite spring yet, but on the bright side, that only gives us more time to snuggle under our PRIMO PLAID flannel quilts. Still, the calendar moves forward, as does the April edition of MarcusFabrics.com! Be sure to check out our latest from MOLLY B’s STYLE SERIES, including the prints and coordinating WOVEN YARN DYES and Indonesian BATIKS!
We were there, and we had a blast! We loved meeting old and new friends over the weekend at QuiltCon in Austin, TX — the creative energy was contagious, and the mood was “joyous”, as described by our president, Stephanie Dell’Olio (that’s her on the right, dwarfed by the towering QuiltCon entry sign – Pic 2) Here are some pix from our booth…
- Our QuiltCon booth (Pic 1) featured OMBRE HAND DYES (Pic 6) and STRIP-IT fabrics (Pic 4)
- Visitors loved our circle garland, made of coordinating CENTENNIAL SOLIDS circles fused together, then joined by a single running straight stitch to create the desired length. (Pic 3)
- And thanks to Paper Pieces for supplying English paper piecing sampler kits for our attendees – everyone enjoyed this fun technique! (Pic 5)

Happy New Year to all of our quilting friends!
