Color Love Block of the Month Coming Soon-The Quilt!

Okay, so a while back I showed off my upcoming Color Love fabric collection from Marcus Fabrics with a sneak peek at an applique block. Since we leave tomorrow for Spring Quilt Market, I thought it might be a good time to show a few images of the Color Love BOM quilts. The reason I say "quilts", plural, is because there are two versions of the same quilt: an applique version and a pieced version....color love applique quilt

Color Love Block of the Month Coming Soon

Color Love --that's the name of my newest fabric collection with Marcus Fabrics.  Here's my sample yardage all laid out on my cutting table, ready to be put to work. Oh, my pretties! So there is already a plan for Color Love--a block-of-the-month quilt also called Color Love. Yesterday I worked on the  applique' blocks.  It was so easy to just peel and fuse the shapes in place and then buttonhole stitch around the patches....color love fabric photo
