The Lucy Boston blocks just keep on coming, and over 75 have been returned to the Marcus booth at Road to CA so far! Among them is a block made by our youngest quilting friend, Shayla Adams, 11, shown below. Coming to the show on Sunday? There’s still time to jion us! Not only have each of the participants earned a chance to win one of 10 quilter’s prize packs, but all of these pretty blocks will be joined into a quilt to be donated to ALS…stay tuned for further details..
We’re pleased to once again sponsor Road to California Quilters’ Conference and Showcase, taking place January 22-25, 2015 in Ontario, CA. This year, in addition to our usual showcase sponsorship of one of the quilt prizes, we’ll be exhibiting as well!
Be sure to stop by the Marcus booth for demos on fussy cutting, English paper piecing (EPP) and more, all featuring our specialty stripe fabrics like PAULA’S BORDER COMPANIONS. Plus giveaways & handouts while supplies last!If you’ve never tried English paper piecing, Lucy Boston blocks and similar techniques, you’ll want to visit with Pati Violick as she demos her techniques using Paper Pieces, as shown in the beginnings of this gorgeous block above. And if you have tried it, learn how Marcus specialty fabrics can give you rich and intricate results every time. BTW, Pati is our Director of Marketing — you might remember her love for EPP from last summer’s Designer Sew-Along.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
