Paula Barnes

With the Summer 2008 release of PAULA BARNES BASICS and BACKGROUNDS, Marcus introduces its first collection designed by noted reproduction quilt specialist Paula Barnes. The fabric line is a natural progression in a long-standing collaboration that has developed over the years between Marcus Fabrics and Paula. She has now created the perfect palette to accompany all of the reproduction fabrics quilters love to use.

Paula has nearly 20 years of teaching experience in Dallas and Houston quilt shops, and enjoys numerous distinctions and guild affiliations throughout the state of Texas.

Paula designs beautiful reproduction quilts, incorporating today's simplified quiltmaking tools and techniques. She also designed the twelve quilt blocks for the Web Sampler Celebration II, featuring Marcus' Civil War Classics collection by Judie Rothermel.

Paula's workshop and lectures include "Designing a Quilting Studio", "Exchange Quilts," and others.
