Marcia Derse is one of my favorite fabric designers. And despite the tongue-in-cheek title of this post I am delighted that she’s starting to get some well-deserved attention. We used some of Marcia’s fabrics in our Acadia quilt (above) and also made a different version of our Party of Four pattern, which we’re calling Marcia’s Party of Four (below) in a more masculine palette.
Marcia has four lines out with Troy and we are fortunate to live just a few miles from Troy’s warehouse so we have been able to combine prints from all four lines. We have yet another quilt coming out in a few months also with a muted masculine palette to stay tuned.
The repeats are large so this fabrics works best in big pieces. If you want to use it, look for patterns that have pieces that are at least 3″x3″ so you’ll be able to see her lovely patterns.
We’ve also started selling towers of 8 fat quarters of Marcia fabrics for $18 because her lines are not easy to find in stores and have a few left. Should you too decide that you can’t live without some Marcia, give us a call at (708) 445-1817 and we’ll send some Marcia your way.
