Back to Basics!

Well, technically, we're not going Back to Basics, because at Marcus, we've never actually left the Basics! In fact, our line of top-quality staples and newer "novelty basics" is one of our biggest strengths in the market season after season, including:

AGED MUSLIN -- These faintly textured cottons provide the perfect backdrop for appliqué (especially wool appliqué!) and pieced quilt blocks whether traditional or contemporary. You'll love them for dolls & soft crafts, home décor and fashion, too! Available in neutrals and newly added fashion colors.

CENTENNIAL SOLIDS -- The ultimate basic regardless of the quilt style, our solid range has grown over 20 years to include 1930's classic colors, fresh palettes for the Modern quilter, and everything in between!

THE SEASONS WOOL COLLECTION -- Woven quality wool felts beautifully, giving it a soft, plush hand. The plush feel and rich colors of felted woven wools add lots of dimension to appliqué on cotton prints, as the Quilted Crow Girls have shown us! Now in 26 gorgeous colors!

PRIMO PLAID FLANNELS / PRIMO SOLIDS --New colors and patterns keep the "touchy-feely" enjoyment going from season to season, including specially themed palettes for the holidays. It's the right look and feel for the entire family, pets included!

SUEDED HAND DYED FLANNELS -- Subtle shading is created through hand dyeing, giving this plush flannel an even richer hand and gorgeous visual effect.

PAULA BARNES COMPANIONS -- These stashworthy basic collection has extended availability, making them a great choice for custom BOMs, workshop samples and other serial quilt projects. Watch for Paula's newest editions in January 2015!

MOLLY Bs BASICS -- Another great choice when you're looking for beautiful prints with continuity. Molly B's collections offer vintage colors with a folk art feel, blending nicely with 1800s repros as well as classic prints and plaids.

MARCUS TEXTURES -- What began as a simple crosshatch coordinate in a single Faye Burgos collection has evolved into its own collection, with a color range that spans almost all Marcus print collections.

SHOT-CEE -- Shot cloth is yarn-dyed from threads of two or more colors, for a subtle yet interesting iridescent effect. Mix these with prints as you like.

108" and 60" WIDE QUILT BACKS -- While we highly recommend our wide width fabrics for convenient one-piece quilt backings, they're great for so much more! Refresh your memory with Creative Uses for 108" Fabrics.
