Thirties Prints in a Charming Setting

Judie Rothermel’s new collection, Basket of Scraps by Marcus Brothers. is featured in an upcoming book by It’s Sew Emma.









This Block of the Month style quilt book is due to arrive next month – perfect timing to wash away those Winter blues.

The setting stars which frame the blocks are simply stunning. The quilt can be made in two sizes – queen and king – so you can finally make a quilt to fit your bed. And, since it is a block of the month, it can be pieced a little at a time so they have removed the intimidation factor.

Here is just a sampling of this fabric line which is due to arrive later this month:




















Conversational prints combined with mini coordinates – and a check threw in (which would be an awesome binding) – who could ask for anything more???

Judie Rothermel and Crabapple Hill Combine for the Perfect Fall Display

Fall is just around the corner – and it is time for you to set up those seasonal displays!  For those of you who procrastinated, Crab Apple Hill had the most beautiful booth at Spring Market.  (Meg assumes that we are always working a few seasons ahead so our projects are done in time for each holiday – oh, if I lived in that perfect world!)

Item #CAH316 Retail $9.00                     Item #CAH313 Retail $25.00 

For those of you who prefer to enjoy the seasons as they evolve – and are always working on a project the EVE of that holiday – we have just the ticket! After all, I prefer to think that that unfinished project in my basket is just a part of the decorations.  The colors even coordinate! 

Meg created a whole new line of fall patterns – to add to the favorites we’ve enjoyed in the past.  Just set up a display of these patterns, pull some black and cream fabrics from your shelves, add some pearl cottons – and you are ready for fall!

But, if you don’t have fabrics in these colorways – Judie Rothermel has come to your rescue.  She has a new line of reproduction fabrics called “Ink Well” that are perfect for these projects!  In fact, great minds think alike!  Marcus Brothers sent this line to Meg and she is considering using it for her new Fall patterns – that will be released at Spring Market! 

If you buy this line NOW, it should arrive by the end of September-beginning of October – just in time for this season – and you’ll actually be prepared for next!
