Nature instills wonder and awe. Join Annette in creating a "Mark Maker" quilt that captures the freedom of the outdoors in pattern, color and texture. The imagery for the sample quilt evolved from Valori's hand carved blocks that are carefully layered and printed on fabric. The result is a unique esthetic effect available in three different fabric colorways. Learn how to use templates, cut the shapes and its mirror image as well as follow the layering of the templates.

A limited amount of "Mark Maker" kits are available if you choose, or you can follow the supply list in the pattern and pull your own palette for the "MARK MAKER" quilt design.
