New from Kansas City Star Books…

There’s something about seeing our fabrics in print that still excites us every time – it never gets old!  This time, Kansas City Star Quilts announces their upcoming book, Kindred Spirits, by Jill Shaulis and Vicki Olsen, which features LOTS of Marcus prints!  their quilt shop and pattern business, Yellow Creek Quilt Designs, is known for its warm 1800s reproduction prints and wool fabrics. Now they celebrate their love of classic quilts in this diverse collection of 13 projects, including bed-size quilts, wall hangings, table runners and a wool appliqué table mat. While paying homage to the past, sisters Jill and Vicki also put their own twist on tradition, in a variety of quilt designs.  As a leader in reproduction style prints, we’re happy to be a part of KC Star’s newest release, and we hope you’ll love their interpretations of our fabrics as much as we do!  Check out an excerpt here.
