"Tokens of Thyme" --
Our First WOOL COLLECTION BOM
Made with PRECUTS!!

Marcus is thrilled to introduce its first WOOL COLLECTION BOM program, "Tokens of Thyme", designed by Darci and Lacey Schipnewski, the mother-daughter team behind Pastthyme Patterns. The cheery, colorful sampler style appliqué design is suitable for all skill levels and created with a single pack of (20) 10" x 10" WOOL PRECUTS! Marcus wool is a premium quality, rich and luscious, and designed to work beautifully for appliqué.

The seasonal appliqué motifs are worked on a cream wool background that is supported by a base cloth of craft felt, flannel or heavy sew-in interfacing like Timtex. This version is shown in a wooden frame, and the 6" x 6" blocks can also be displayed individually on wire racks, made into a calendar, incorporated into other quilt projects and more! The small block size and hand stitching make them the perfect take-along project. The instructions include diagrams for basic embroidery stitches, so they're beginner friendly, too.

Darci Schipnewski of Pastthyme Patterns shares her inspiration for the design:
"Tokens of Thyme reflects what I think of as the months of the year unfold. In the business of life, I wanted to offer something that was quick to stitch. Quilters will find the project to be versatile, with options for various finishing methods. With a manageable finished size of 18" x 24" this seasonal sampler will surely bring joy to your home, as you reflect upon the seasons of thyme."

Finished Size 18" x 24" (Block Size 6" x 6")
