#MondaysWithMarcus Week #8: Sarah Maxwell

Week 8 of our #MondayswithMarcus series brings us “Simply Squared,” a quilt design by Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J. It measures approximately 30″ square, perfect as a wall accent or table topper. Sarah’s free project includes tips for quick and accurate piecing and features her DANCE AT DUSK collection — and who doesn’t love that beautiful blue paisley? You can download the free pattern and order kits by visiting her MWM page. That’s where you can also view her detailed instructional video, where she also discusses the unique inspiration for the fabric collection!

Be sure to continue your Likes, Follows and Shares of Marcus Fabrics across Facebook and Instagram, and all or our featured designers for the chance to win weekly fabric prizes, and a Grand Prize at the end! You’ll find all of their social links on our Mondays with Marcus page.

Next week: Cindy Staub of Quilt Doodle Designs!

#MondaysWithMarcus Week 5: Dolores Smith!

Week 5 of our Mondays with Marcus series begins with neutral-toned pieced pumpkins styled as “Harvest in a Row”, a framed art piece from Dolores Smith of Timeworn Toolbox Designs! We love her minimalist approach, allowing you to go further with various embellishments if you like, including embroidery, beadwork and more. Go with her more modern color palette, or choose more traditional autumn colors.

You can download her FREE PATTERN starting today!

#MondayswithMarcus Week 2: Deirdre Bond-Abel

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.

To get the FREE PATTERN, just email deirdre@hatcreekquilts.com.au. Then, check out (and be sure to bookmark!) her companion video of applique tips and techniques!

Next Up: Pam Buda – October 19!
