Monday's With Marcus II ~ Dolores Smith of Timeworn Toolbox

 Another Monday, funday!!!!  Today, we are spotlighting fellow Marcus Fabrics designer....

....Dolores Smith!  Her company name is Timeworn Toolbox and the fabric she designs is uniquely her own in her soft, muted palettes.  Gorgeous!!  Please visit her at Homestead Hearth (the quilt shop she co-owns with Sarah Maxwell) to download her sweet Simplify pillow pattern.

This week, I'm continuing to piece my new Primitive Traditions quilt.  I'm enjoying the piecing, and loving how it's coming out.  Can't wait until I can layout all the blocks.....we all love that part. 

I'm also working on piecing two more little quilts using my Tiny Baskets block....so there will be three quilts in the pattern - not just one!  I so adore that block that I haven't been able to stop making them!  Teehee....

The next fabric line after Primitive Traditions is called Country Meadow, and my sample fabric has arrived.  I can't wait to show it to you!  If you'd like a sneak peek of Country Meadow, click here

I try to post to my Instagram and Facebook pages five times a week, so if you'd like to see a lot more, please follow me on social media.  

Stay safe, everybody and be well!

Primitive Traditions Quilt Collection Pre-Orders!!!

 It won't be too long now until my Primitive Traditions, Folk Art Stars and Primitive Plaids fabric collections arrive in quilt shops everywhere!  We've waited so long!

Primitive Traditions Quilt ~ Designed by Pam Buda
Primitive Traditions is my feature quilt for this collection.  It's a beauty with how the black fabrics offset the colors and make them just POP!  

I'll bet you're saying it looks very difficult to piece.  WRONG!  The units in the blocks are made larger and trimmed down...honest!  

For this block, there are Half Square Triangles (trimmed to size), Flying Geese and the kite unit in the corners of the block.

Intimidated by the kite unit?

Don't be....it's made larger and trimmed with a really cool ruler.

I'll bet the pieced Pinwheel block worries you, too.  Nope...not a problem.

You know the Half Squares are trimmed.  But, what about those Shaded Four Patch units.  

Hard to piece?  Not a chance....

Make the unit on the top.....and it becomes

two Shaded Four Patch units!!  Easy...I promise!

Primitive Traditions is made using three rulers: Bloc-Loc for Half Square Triangles, Tucker Trimmer I for Shaded Four Patch, and Corner Beam for Kite unit.

See....I told you....you can do this!

Hickory Sticks Quilt ~ Designed by Pam Buda
Hickory Sticks is the easiest of the four quilts I designed using the Primitive Traditions fabric collection.  

The block center is full of the Folk Art Star fabrics in every color!

The stars are surrounded by the Primitive Traditions fabrics, creating a Window Pane block made from strip sets.  Fun to piece and pretty quick, too!
Folk Art Stars Quilt ~ Designed by Pam Buda
My Folk Art Stars quilt was designed to really feature the Folk Art Stars prints.  Stars, stars everywhere!  Love it!  

The Ohio Star block (a favorite) is made of the Primitive Traditions fabrics, and has a fussy cut Folk Art Star in the center of each block.  

Framed by black, green and red sashings and borders adding lots of color, and finished with the blue Folk Art star print.  Just love it!  

Last but not least is Tiny Baskets.

Oh, I have wanted to make this quilt for a very long time....and now it's here!  

Using only the Primitive Traditions prints, this scrappy quilt makes my heart sing.   Why?

...because every block is cuter and irresistible when tiny!  

And, this basket block is just the cutest! 

With all of the fabric collections coming soon to your local quilt shop, please, please ask for the fabrics and the four quilt patterns there first.  I always want you to support your LQS!  

If your LQS won't carry these collections (sob, sob) then consider my pre-order offer.

I am kitting all four of these quilts and they are available for PRE-ORDER right now. 

A non-refundable deposit is required to hold your kit.  (Deposit is applied to your balance when the balance is paid.)


I will only be making kits for the quilters who pre-order them.  They will not be available after April 1st.  I plan to only order enough fabric to fill the pre-orders I have, so you have a few weeks to think about it.  

You can find all of the details about each quilt on my website here.

I'm so excited!!  

Stay safe and be well, my quilting friends.  Thank you for your support!

Monday's With Marcus II ~ Vicki McCarty of Calico Patch Designs

 Welcome to the first Monday With Marcus in our second series event.  Vicki McCarty of Calico Patch Designs begins our event featuring her Butterfly Getaway mini quilt.  Vicki made a wonderful video tutorial that you won't want to miss.  

You can still order a kit for the quilt if you like right from Vicki's website.  Her free pattern is available beginning today.  Click here to visit Calico Patch Designs.

Don't forget to visit our Monday's With Marcus Facebook page, and LIKE/FOLLOW/SHARE for a chance to win some fabric from Marcus!!  Yay! 
Don't ya love giveaways?!

I thought you would enjoy seeing this photo sent to me by JoAnne Shull.  She originally made my little 10 inch quilt, Tess of the d'Urbervilles, found in my first book Vintage Patchwork.  Then, JoAnne wanted to super size Tess to make a quilt for her daughter for Christmas.  Notice the 10 inch mini Tess in the cute wire hanger and the big version on the chair....hubby hiding underneath ;-)  JoAnne followed the directions in the book and used much larger Half Square Triangles.  So fun!  Thanks for sharing the photo with all of us, JoAnne.  And a shout out to her LQS, Olde City Quilts, for the beautiful quilting on the lap size quilt.

Monday's With Marcus ~ Spring Project Reveal!!

 Monday's With Marcus Spring Event!

Back In Time Doll Quilts

Welcome to a brand new Monday's With Marcus Designer Event.  Today is an exciting day as it's the BIG REVEAL of all of the Marcus Designers' projects!  

I designed a sweet doll quilt for my project, called Back In Time, and it's available in two colorways.  
First up is Back In Time done in a lovely red floral, with a really gorgeous light print background, and an historic repro blue.....which is one of my absolute favorite prints from my ForeverMore fabric collection.
Second is Back In time featuring the same blue historic repro print, paired with a pretty neutral tonal print background, and another of my favorite prints from ForeverMore, the black chain flower print!!  They look so, so great together!   

I have a limited amount of kits for both versions of my Back In Time doll quilts. 
Click here to order a Back In Time kit.  Your order will ship to you right away.  Quilt measures 19 x 25.

There are several benefits to ordering your kit now....I will include the cutting instructions so you can have your quilt cut and ready to go on March 15th when the pattern and video tutorials are available.  AND - you can shop around my website as you won't pay more than $8.95 for shipping!  So, you may as well add to your order- there won't be additional shipping if you do!  (Pssst....I highly recommend ordering the Seam Align Glue as I used it when I made the quilts.  Wonderful stuff!  I will demo on my project video.)

The beauty of this is that by having the kit ahead of time, you can sew along with me on my spotlight day, March 15th.  That day, you will also be able to download the pattern for free!!

I'll bet you would love to see all of the other projects my sister designers have waiting for you!  Click here to see our Big Reveal slide show!!! 

The same idea applies to all of my Marcus Fabrics sister designers!  So, as you watch the slide show video, and if you love other projects, visit the designer's website, and buy the kit(s) NOW while supplies last!  Then, be sure to visit them on their spotlight day for video tutorials, and their free patterns.  I will remind you each Monday of our featured Marcus designer.

Now...what is not to love about Monday's With Marcus?!!!  We're making Mondays a good day!
