Pati's Block for Week #4 & New Aged Muslins


Did you know that Marcus Fabrics has this collection of "New" Aged Muslins?  This beautiful array of colored, overdyed muslins is a feast for your eyes to be sure.  Marcus was the first company to bring you overdyed, aged muslins in the warm beige tones seen in the collection at the far right of the color card.  They are all made from the highest quality goods and subtly bring that aged and worn feeling that we all love right into your quilts.  

Recently, Marcus took aging their muslin collection a giant step further by dying the muslin in colors and then giving them the aged look the beige fabrics have.  The results are stunning!  

Just think of all the things you can do with these fabrics!  I'm not a fan of working with solids in my Civil War repro quilts because they're too "flat" for me, but these New Aged Muslin fabrics have that gentle shading and texture that is anything but flat!  I'll be cutting them up and working them into my next scrappy quilt for sure.  Just wanted to share a really  good thing with you!  Ask for them as your local quilt shop.  

It's Friday!!!  That means another block is ready for you in our Friends & Companions Sew-Along!!  

Click here to hop on over to the Marcus Mentions blog and get to know Pati Violick, Director of Marketing.  You're gonna love her block!

Have a great weekend stitching!

  3. Pam, I had no idea these fabrics existed. I can think of so many ways to use them! You are right they are perfect for combining with your repro fabrics! Does Marcus sell that swatch card? It would be a great design tool.
