Marcus Introduces LOVE AND INSPIRATION by Faye Burgos

Messages of inspiration and encouragement continue as a popular theme for quilters, whether traditional or contemporary.  With LOVE & INSPIRATION, Faye Burgos expresses beautiful sentiments not only with her signature pretty florals and coordinates, but also adds charm with inspirational words and six handkerchief designs.  Black lends an upscale, trans-seasonal look to the soft pinks, sage and white in this grouping of lush roses and lilies-of-the-valley, buds, vines. A thin multi-color stripe and floral wallpaper stripe complete the group, lending themselves to creative cutting and piecing techniques.  The words sing, play, hope, love, and laugh decorate the border, and inspire positive sentiments suitable for many occasions, whether used together or cut apart as appliqués.

As handkerchief themes are gaining in popularity for the Spring 2007 season, the Love & Inspiration handkerchief block is strategically designed for a wide variety of creative uses.  Running yardage allows quilters to make easy cheater quilts.  Or, blocks can be cut apart and trimmed with lace for a beautiful set of handkerchiefs, or highlighted in pillows, tote bags, wall hangings or jackets.  Sized at 12 inches, they also cross over beautifully into scrapbooking & memory crafting as beautiful background pages, complete with blank areas for personal embellishment.

Love & Inspiration's pretty flowers and life-affirming messages are sure to be a welcome addition to any quilter's fabric collection.  View it in its entirety now at
