In case you missed it, Series 3 of our popular Mondays with Marcus designer project series is now in full swing, following a fun multi-designer launch on Valentines’ Day! Then, the inspiration continued with Gennifer March’s ORANGE yo-yo embellished gift tags, and Nancy Rink’s cheery YELLOW stylized log cabin wall hanging. If you missed the debuts, no worries – you can get links all of the Series 3 projects throughout. And each Monday through April 18, we’ll have another new designer color launch (or two!)
And as this slideshow proves, our RED designer launch projects are perfect anytime, not only for Valentines’ Day…
Follow the series – with links to the free projects on each designer’s site — on the Marcus website, and watch for the Monday morning launch of each color on our Mondays with Marcus Facebook page. Finally, be sure to follow your favorite designers, discover new ones, and Like, Comment and Share them with your creative friends… All of the projects are FREE, and you can work from yoru own stash, or order a designer kit where available. Enjoy!

Each quilt design is paired with a fascinating historical account from the 1800s. More than 70 beautiful photos capture the style and sentiment of this unique era in American quilting history.
You’ll enjoy recreating their designs with your favorite Paula Barnes collections, including BALTIMORE HOUSE and her newest line (stay tuned for that one – it’s coming soon!!)

If you receive the great e-newsletters from AllPeopleQuilt.com like we do, you probably noticed this gorgeous wall hanging featured in today’s issue…It’s made with our own M FOR MYSTERY collection by Faye Burgos! Their editors chose the blue and gold colorway, and we think it would be equally pretty in the pink and black combo: What do you think?
