The Story Behind the Quilt... The Stargazing BOM Quilt was designed by Krisanne Watkins. "Color adds so much depth and texture to my world. My design inspiration for 'Stargazng' is based on that premise. The beautiful, rich colors of Aged Muslins served as the spark of inspiration to design a new project."
Aged Muslins What separates the Marcus Aged Muslin from look-alikes is a special dyeing technique that creates a faded, distressed, look. The result is an inherent overall shading that gives the cloth its rich, suede-like appearance. Aged muslin's weave is slightly tighter than standard quilting fabrics, making it an excellent background fabric.
Choose a Complete Kit or Flexible Block-of-the Month Program! This project includes the pattern, generous fabric cuts, and all fabrics for the top, including coordinating backing and binding. Please note that if you choose the Complete Kit option, you will receive the kit cut as a BOM project. We mention this because some stores just cut hunks of fabric. With Fabric Essentials, you will receive all the goodies you have come to expect with our programs - ample fabric in each kit, backing, binding and our exclusive cutting diagrams! P.S. We just found out that many stores do not include binding in their BOM programs. It pays to ask questions so you know exactly what you are getting!
Note: We cut all kits in advance - this means that your fabrics will be from the same shipment. When you sign up for our BOM programs, we put all your kits in a bag with your name on it. We cut your backing in advance as well. You are guaranteed to get all your kits! Less risk for you and no worries! Stargazing Aged Muslin Fabrics
