“Mr Swirl E Bones” Wins Again!

Please join us in congratulating Victoria on winning the Third Place INNOVATIVE PIECED award at Quilt Festival, sponsored by IQA and Tin Lizzie!  This is the fourth award for the fabulous “Mr. Swirl E. Bones”.   You might remember that her intriguing design (which featured skulls, in formation, wearing top hats!) also grabbed Judges’ Choice and Viewers’ Choice honors at QuiltCon earlier this year, as well as First Place at MQX in April. Impressive!

Another Quilt Market Begins!

The office is quiet today as several of our Marcus-ites are traveling to Houston for Fall Quilt Market 2014! Looking forward to their pictures!

Quilt Market is now in its 35th year (and Quilt Festival, the show for consumers, marks 40 years in 2014!)  Marcus has been attending since 1987, when we debuted with Judie Rothermel’s first collection of Aunt Grace 1930’s repros.  Here’s a peek at the Judie Rothermel collections we’ll be showing this weekend… AUNT GRACE SIMPLER SAMPLER and JUDIE’S ALBUM QUILT.  Check out the details of these gorgeous BOM programs.  No wonder she’s still the leader in 1930’s reproductions and historic fabric prints for quilters!
