If you've been following my blog for a while ,you will know this fact about me...
I LOVE GREEN & RED together!
Need proof? Here's a small smattering of the 5-10 green & red quilts I make each year!
I love subtle Holiday fabrics, Fabrics that read Green & Red. So they can be red & green without being overly "Christmas-y." ...Although I do love me some Santa and reindeer fabrics too, who am I kidding? Need more proof? Click here.
But in general, I love the combo of colors. I also love vintage quilts and red, green and yellow here hugely popular back in the day, so this can work both ways... Modern vintage!
This wreath print can be used as a WHOLE cloth panel, or chop it up to make some amazing designs! Below using my Snack set template #6 from the variety pack to make this cute block! ( BTW: Snack Set Sew-a-long at Facebook! Come play along!)
"Come Together" by Victoria Findlay Wolfe with blocks by attendees of QuiltCon 2015. Quilted by Sarabeth Rebe. 83' x 71'
You might remember this project from QuiltCon in Pasadena. We asked Marcus booth visitors to stitch a simple Drunkard's Path block with My Mostly Manor collection. Well, with those blocks, I created this design, which was then quilted by Sarabeth Rebe. It was donated to the Hopes & Dreams Challenge, an ongoing effort spearheaded by Quilters Dream Batting.
And NOW, you can support ALS families and research by purchasing raffle tickets to win this designer masterpeice! Tickets are only $5 per chance (or 5 chances for $20) and can be purchased online now through the drawing date of June 19, 2017. A fulll 100% of the raffle proceeds will be split between family support and research funding.

Thanks to our raffle co-sponsors; Quilters Dream Batting, Aurifil, and Juki America,and thank you again to the many quilters who "came together" as quilters often do, to stitch blocks for inclusion in this quilt!
Please share this info with all of your friends and guilds... We need to do well here, and raise some funds, a way for all of use to help, $5 at time! Easy to do, you know you will spend that on fabric anyway!

Hey all you quilter friends looking for a fun easy challenge!!
MARCUS MUG RUGS!!!
Use at least ONE Marcus or Studio 37 fabric or more... to make a small MUG rug no larger than 9" on any side.
(I know this gal, she designs for Marcus, I think her name is Virginia Wolfe.... Wait that's not right...
hahaha! Do you ahve any idea how often I get that? seriously, Google it... TRUE FACT!
I like to tell people I am the one that's alive... besides correcting them that my name is actually VICTORIA, not VIRGINIA.
You think I'm kidding?
Just in case they didn't have it quite right, they included Virginia and Victoria....
It seemed I should show you my Mug Rug in action... I do tend to make tea then forget about it, and leave tea cups all around my studio... So this is an accurate picture... I'm sure I'm not alone in this tea cup game...
But you can't see how stinkin' cute my mug rug is, so.... Here's my MUG and MY MUGRUG! ;-)
Whether you're already a fan of the Mugrug, or aren't even sure what one is, you'll want to enter the Marcus Makers MUGRUG CHALLENGE! Help us to achieve our lofty goal of "A Marcus Rug for Every Mug," now thru April 30, 2017 -- here's how...
Follow the various inspirations we've gathered from our own Marcus Makers (instructions for these mugrugs are available online!)
Then, post your entry on Instagram using #MarcusMugshot
and remember to tag your photo
@marcusfabrics and/or @studio37fabrics
and me, if you use my fabric! @victoriafindlaywolfe
Did you know TAGGING the photo( not just in description) helps people see where they've been tagged? Tag you photo, don't just do @whomever in the description... tag the photo @victoriafindlaywolfe then it shows in my notifications... I miss people's hashtags and @ images all the time, as I can't find them in that long silly list instagram gives you... And I have to go search to see who's tagged me... So tag your photo and help everyone!
If you're new to mugrugs, be warned: mugrug making can be addictive, which is really not a problem, because they make great gifts, AND you can enter as many times as you like (one mugrug per photo, please). Each Tuesday during the Challenge, we'll choose random winners from the hashtagged entries to receive exciting fabric prizes and more -- Join us!!
...in layman's terms...
WIN FABRIC by using up a tiny amount of
MARCUS or Studio 37 fabric!
need inspiration, check out he submissions already at instagram #marcusmugshot
or click here.
and if you need more MARCUS fabric, remember, VICTORIA has MARCUS FABRIC.
I used fabrics from my newest line of fabric called, "LIGHT WORK"... Blur plaid, Vivid, birdsong, and dapple.
and my Snack sets or Variety pack templates would be PERFECT FOR THIS!!
