Marcus Fabrics: H&D Grand Sponsor charity quilt!

Marcus Fabrics is thrilled to be a part of the 2016 Hopes & Dreams Quilt Challenge to support the fight against ALS.  Having quilters take part by creating individual blocks for our own Lucy Boston block challenge at our Road to CA booth in January proved to be the perfect tie-in.

We provided a variety of stripes from our current collections, mostly from our best-selling designers like Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts, Judie Rothermel, Faye Burgos and others.  Show attendees took the fabrics and supplies from Paper Pieces, returning to our booth with their finished Lucy Boston blocks, which became their official entry giveaways. 

Vicki Bellino, owner of Bloom Creek and a long-time Marcus design partner, took on the task of creating a quilt that would unify the blocks beautifully, and we know you’ll agree that she has succeeded!

Marcus’ Director of Marketing Pati Violick looks on as our retail division President, Stephanie Dell ‘Olio chooses among all of the Lucy Boston block entries for our TEN lucky gift basket winners.

    Now, look at what they won!

Thank You again to all of our participating quilting friends, to Paper Pieces for donating their paper piecing supplies, to Vicky for donating her quilting artistry, and to Quilters Dream Batting for bringing this important cause to everyone’s attention.

To learn more and to see the quilt in progress, catch up on the related blog posts at MarcusMentions.com.  While you’re there, subscribe to our blog posts, and join the conversations for a chance to win other great giveaways!
