BOM Program by Jenifer Gaston
featuring LANACOT WOOLS by Marcus Fabrics and PAULA''S COMPANIONS II by Paula Barnes
In the Garden is Jeni Gaston's debut
project for Marcus Fabrics. She combines Marcus LANACOT WOOLS with prints
from PAULA'S COMPANIONS II (by Paula
Barnes) to create a beautifully detailed sampler style layered appliqu quilt.
And for a limited time, special put-ups on the wools will be available, making this
program the perfect introduction for shops that are new to wool. The Shop Guide will also include Jeni''s tips for merchandising and working with wool.
The 10-month program is available now and results in a 64" x 74" quilt.
"This sweet quilt has traditional patchwork,
with whimsical flowers in various vessels and more! One of my specialties is to combine cotton and wool, but the fun twist on this one is that I appliqu d cotton on top of the wool in some of the blocks, giving them some extra depth! You will also find a bit of fun embroidery in some of the blocks. I hope you enjoy this pairing of Paula's Companions and Lanacot Wools, which are yummy!"
