MARCUS MERRIMENT

It's not midnight yet, so I wanted to squeeze this in under the wire! I actually did finish a UFO this month! I bought this pattern last fall while in Arizona and started it there. It is designed by Renee Plains. Pretty darn cute design! I had fun with it! I finally completed the quilting and hung it on the wall. My quilting isn't that great, so don't dwell on it. Lol! This one contains fabrics designed by my hero, Judie Rothermel. Most are from the Sturbridge Miniatures. The sashing is hers also from a few years ago. I felt happy to find it and incorporate it into a project with some of Judie's newer fabrics. I think I even said, "Oh look, you can live here with your new family". Do you ever talk to your fabric? Aren't they like old friends? By the way, I saw Judie's Merrimack line today (by Marcus Fabrics) while I was at the quilt shop. Be still my heart! I wanted that fat quarter pack sooo bad! Someday soon it will be mine! In the meantime maybe the anticipation will help keep the blood pumping through my veins. My own form of aerobic exercise! I gotta run...(don't take that too literally).

Such a cute quilt! I wonder if I'll be able to resist the new fabric lines?

Darcie said...

What a terrific finish! And I think that your quilting is wonderful!

Oooh...that new fabric line is yummy! Do you have a pattern/s in mind for this line yet?!

Enjoy your weekend!

Lovely wall hanging and great colours!

I am a Judie fan, too. I was disappointed to not find her at Road to CA this year . . . usually one of my favorite booths. Your little bird quilt is just darling *s*

Too darn cute!

Lust never really goes away, does it? As we age, it just changes direction a little bit! Love that quilt! Good job getting it finished!

Paula said...

Very cute quilt. Love the fabrics, of course!

Dawn said...

Oh yes! It is adorable and I love her fabrics! I could house that one here!

it is a very beautiful quilt and the quilting is just right for it.
Judie´s fabric lines are all to die for. Her last line is no exception. I have been looking for a strippy fabric for so long and now it seems I have found something I like at last. Thank you for the link. Take care.
P.S.: I don´t think your medaillon quilts look all the same at all!

What a fun question! I haven't had convo's with my fabric - yet - but now that you mention it, I see that happening.

I certainly have plenty of convo's in my little quilty corner of the world.

BTW, Judie is just...well we love her dont we?! The Scarlet Begonia I'm working on is all JR - Civil War Classics.

Oh, yes I talk to my fabrics, so far they haven't talked back.. at least I haven't heard them. The fabulous finish is just that, the Merrimack collection is great, you're so right!

Lea said...

Oh, Marcie, I love this quilt!!! This is so pretty and sweet.
I love your fabric choices also.
I'm looking forward to see your new creation with Judie's new line! :-)

What a darling little quilt. The quilting looks good to me. Judie Rothermel is one of my favourite designers too. She has her own box in my fabric cupboard! I had a look at the new Merrimack fabrics - divine. Love the stripes.

Hello from another Judie R fan. I shopped more than once at her Houston Quilt Festival booth a few years ago and came home with some gorgeous fabrics. Her booth was swamped with shoppers. Love your quilt.

Darling quilt! I did this one a few years ago and enjoyed every minute of making it!
