One of the bigger takeaways from QuiltCon was the profusion of color to be found in trending rainbow quilts, with quilt designers going “full-spectrum” within a single quilt. Case in point: the latest from our own Studio 37 designers:
Sarah J Maxwell’s new line, a SHOUT, a Whisper, a text, and her accompanying quilt design were a highlight of the Studio 37 booth at the show! The group of prints is all about how we communicate and relate to one another, in a palette of subtly-softened brights. Motifs include Morse code, shorthand, texting terms and others. The quilt also incorporates several CENTENNIAL SOLIDS. Available in quilt shops in May.
At the VFWQuilts booth, Victoria Findlay Wolfe featured her new Snack Sets, a fun mix of shapes and CENTENNIAL SOLIDS in smaller “snack-sized” projects. Here she mixes various Snack Sets for a bright, colorful effect: Available now thru her online store.
And of course, Nancy Rink’s new GTKH: Getting to Know HUE fabrics and BOM quilt also stopped quilters in their tracks! The upscale look and feel of these “modern mixer” motifs set them apart from other blender groups, making them the perfect new basic for contemporary quilts (as Pati was explaining to some of the enthusiastic admirers at the show.) Join the BOM now at your favorite local quilt shop!
Thank you sew much to all of the willing “suspects” we rounded up at QuiltCon for their #MarcusMugshots, in honor of our ongoing Mugrug Challenge! Some were extremely willing, in fact; we’ve never seen a happier, more cheerful group of mugshots…maybe the free fabrics we gave away had something to do with it, and we’re already seeing lots of mugrug entries as a result, so keep those Instagram posts coming for a “shot” at one of our weekly random drawing prizes, now thru April 30.
In case you missed it, these are just a few. Look for more on our Instagram feed @marcusfabrics and @studio37fabrics.
The Mugrug Challenge is in full effect, and this is just one of the prizes you could win in our weekly drawings! We’ve got a limited quantity of the Marcus mugs, but no shortage of great fabrics to award to Challenge participants!
Winners will be chosen at random every Tuesday now through April 30, so read these few simple guidelines, enter often, and post regularly using #MarcusMugshot.
Mugrugs are great little stashbusters, thoughtful gifts, and the perfect way to try out new techniques. Choose at least one Marcus and/or Studio 37 print from your stash, or visit your local quilt shop to choose from the latest designer collections. Participating shops will also offer tips, events and more, so check back with them often throughout the Challenge.
And catch us in Savannah, GA at QuiltCon in just a couple of weeks, where you can have your #MarcusMugshot taken, pick up a few fabric freebies and more!
