AccuQuilt Loves AUNT GRACE, Too!

It seems everyone is rediscovering our AUNT GRACE 1930s vintage print collections by reproduction innovator Judie Rothermel, and interpreting them in such exciting new ways!  Recently we featured Laura Coia of Sew Very Easy, and now we’re pleased to share more fresh (and FREE!) inspiration from our friends at AccuQuilt.  This time they’re using Judie’s latest, AUNT GRACE BASKETS OF SCRAPS, along with their GO! Qube GO! Qube Mix & Match 8” Block (55776) and GO! Qube 8” Companion Set-Classics (55780), with fantastic results…

AccuQuilt GO! Qube and Autn Grace FAbrics - marcusfabrics.comWe love their mix of prints and colors to create the diagonal stretched stars motif across the 48″ square quilt.  It’s the perfect size for a baby quilt or chair throw.  This is a timeless look that epitomizes the current 1930s Vintage decorating trends, and it works beautifully in traditional and modern room settings alike.

And as we begin September as National Sewing Month, there’s no better time than  to start your own Aunt Grace quilt!

Fall ’14 Cover Quilt: Medallion Muse

MedallionMuse-HHQuiltIf you’re looking for a vibrant, trans-seasonal quilt project, check out Faye Burgos’ MEDALLION MUSE collection, shown here in the “Lapis & Marigolds” quilt by Homestead Hearth. It’s featured in the latest issue of McCall’s Quilt Quilts (that’s the October/November issue), and it even made the cover!  The fabric is available in this cool blue palette shown above, and in an equally vibrant orchid/gold combination.
