We've been waiting patiently and it has paid off - Red and Green Quilts - has arrived!  This is Martingale Publishing Co. newest compilation. Fourteen top designers were selected to submit red and green quilts and we were so excited to be one of them!! We are definitely in good company with this one! You are going to love these beautiful red and green quilts and as you see from the cover there's even a touch of cheddar in some of them. There are big quilts and smaller quilts and both pieced and appliques. Our quilt "Christmas Star" is just perfect with the holidays just around the corner. (Bet you could finish this just in time for Christmas!!) and our kits are available on our website!

It's Coming!

 Are you looking for some new projects? Have you sewn everything in your stash, finished up all your UFO's or just want something new to work on? If so,  Mondays With Marcus may be just what you are looking for. 12 designers from Marcus and Studio 37 Fabrics have joined together for this new program. The program begins October 5 and runs through December 14, 2020. Each Monday, one of the 12 designers will share a free downloadable pattern for their project. Yes, that's right, a free pattern AND each designer will also share valuable tips and techniques - maybe even a video or two! 

Many of the designers will also be offering optional kits that you will be able to purchase from their websites or you can just dig into your stash to complete these great projects. Watch for a preview of the projects and the opportunity to begin ordering your kits on Monday, September 21st!

We are so excited to be part of this program and can't wait to see the projects too. We've kept all the projects a secret and won't get to see them before you do, so it's just as exciting for us. By combining the Marcus and Studio 37 Fabrics designers into one program, you will have the opportunity to "experiment" with fabric styles that may be out of your normal wheelhouse. If you're a reproduction fabric kind of gal, then you may want to check out the batiks of the Material Girlfriends or something more modern from Designs by Sarah J. Here's your chance to "expand your horizons." You my also want to do one of the projects in your style of fabric - it's why we have those stashes! I know I'm going to check out some of these projects. I'm always looking for something new to try and a small project is just perfect for that! I see some kit purchasing in my future!!

Our kits are ready to go - thank heavens for a daughter who owed me some favors!! We're up November 16th, but our kits are ready to begin shipping on Monday. We'll have more info on ordering your kits on Monday. Get your kits as soon as possible and you'll be able to have them all prepped before we start on Monday, October 5th.

Here's the official info and schedule of designers:

What a line up of designers! We're looking forward to having you join us on this new adventure. Remember to Like, Follow and Share on social media. Oh and did you see the part about FREE FABRIC DRAWINGS along the way - who doesn't love the chance to win something for free, especially fabric.


Until next time,happy quilting,
