You’ll love this pretty wall hanging by our second MWM designer, Deirdre Bond-Abel! Entitled “Betty’s Blooms”, the look is shown here in 1930s prints, yet would translate equally well in your favorite Marcus collections, including prints and basic texture lines for a more contemporary look! It’s a fun mix of piecing and applique that will add charm to any room setting.
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 ; )
Her 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 enterthis 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??
Aside from the sheer chaos that takes place here in the NY office as we prepare for Market season after season, another sure way to tell that the big show is approaching is the arrival of gorgeous quilts in the office. Pati usually displays them for a day or two before packing them up. Today, the view from our hallway includes the new AUNT GRACE SIMPLER SAMPLER BOM quilt (Fabrics by Judie Rothermel, Quilt & Program by Vicki Bellino). The program begins January 2015 – visit your local quilt shop to reserve your space now! Next to the BOM quilt is Vicki’s charming miniature design (28″ x 28″), entitled First Bloom – it’s also done with the new Aunt Grace collection.
If you’re attending Quilt Market (for the trade only), you can see these up close & personal in BOOTH 1802 – see you soon!
