Holidays at Home 6-Month BOM Program
Fabrics by Faye Burgos  Quilt Design by Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek

Create an elegant home accent for the holidays, as Marcus introduces its Holidays at Home Block-of-the-Month Program. It's available from April through November 2010, so you can complete it at a leisurely pace in time for holiday entertaining, decorating, or even a very special gift! The fabric collection, by Faye Burgos, build on her popular "Holidays" collections of previous seasons with rich, festive red and green. Classic motifs include lush florals to cardinals, a beautifully detailed diagonal stripe, holiday greetings, and more.

This wonderful sampler-style quilt incorporates the entire collection including the large floral suggested for the backing. The project features Vicki Bellino's exclusive tricks & tips using the Strip-It print in the collection (shown above)! Her clever piecing methods are perfect for all skill levels, making it both fun and educational to complete, and the blocks can even be customized by the quilter for a one-of-a-kind look.
