@lanakuehne Showed Us Her #MarcusMugshot, and Won!

Our third random #mugrugchallenge winner took inspiration from her group of 1930s Aunt Grace prints by Judie Rothermel, with the contemporary touch of striped binding.  And we love her embroidered “Place Mug Here” instructions, just in case you weren’t sure how to use this thing  ; )

MugPrizeHer efforts earned @lanakuehne one of our official Challenge mugs filled with fabrics — she might even be inspired to whip up another and enter again!

And for the rest of you, there’s still time to enter this fun and easy challenge, and your entry is included in every weekly drawing now thru April 30 (unless you win earlier, of course…)  Bst of all, you don’t even have to send us the actual mugrug, just post the photo  with #MarcusMugshot and keep it to enjoy (or give as a gift).

So, the sooner you enter, the more chances you have to win!  What are you waiting for??

Behind the Scenes: The Story of ELIZABETH’S DOWRY

Look at what literally just arrived on my desk…it’s Today’s Quilter, our favorite UK quilting magazine, with a big BONUS!

todaysquiltersupp1Issue Seventeen was packaged with a special supplement all about our ELIZABETH’S DOWRY fabric collaboration!  With input from The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles and Karen Styles of Somerset Patchwork, it not only outlines the journey of how this unique collection came to be, but also offers great projects and insights to help you make the most of this historic collection.todaysquiltersupp2

Like the magazine, this special publication is beautifully done — a true collector’s item.  Of course, having contributed to one of the articles, we knew it was in the works, but it’s always sew exciting to see the finished product in real life!
