#MondaysWithMarcus: UpClose with Dolores Smith!

To keep the MWM momentum going as we prepare for the next series, we decided to give a weekly glimpse into the lives of our designers each week. No kits or supplies are needed, just sit back and get to know them better by enjoying some of their most recent creative escapades…

This week, Dolores Smith of Timeworn Toolbox Designs shows off an exciting new project…

CEDAR SHAKE by Dolores Smith

I love the colors of burnt orange and teal, and I’m using my new CEDAR SHAKE collection to do a Block of the Month program for Homestead Hearth.  It is from a quilt pattern of mine called “Scrappy Churn Dash”.  The BOM starts in March and is made with different sized Churn Dash blocks — it’s one of my favorite blocks to stitch!  Want to join us? You’ll find all of the details at Homestead Hearth! Oh, and remember to check out the two new colors of Toolbox Basics introduced in this line, and the coordinating wovens, too!

So…Who Won the STASHBUSTERS Goodies??
