Holiday 2015 - Always The Season

Marcus is pleased to introduce its 2015 Holiday BOM program, ALWAYS IN SEASON. Building on the success of previous holiday-themed BOM programs, this one combines a beautiful Strip-It pre-printed stripe design with coordinates by Faye Burgos and the creativity of Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek.

Vicki was inspired by the Christmas tree, her favorite part of the holidays. "I designed a simple Feather Tree that lends itself well to many types of embellishments, such as appliquéd birds or ornaments, buttons, rhinestones, glitter paint, etc." Surrounding the tree are traditional blocks accented with Faye's rich paisley. Creative cutting and piecing of the Strip-It design was also employed for several of the blocks. Quilters will create the project working from the center outward, adding pieced and plain borders each month. Final borders are added in Month 6 for the completed project.

Program begins May 2015 - Finished size 56" x 70"
