Marcus Fabrics Material Madders 10" Squares




Sheryl Johnson takes quilters back in time, inspired by the reddish-brown roots of the Rubia tinctorum plant, a very important source of dye since the 1500s.  The plants of the genus Rubia contain small yellow flowers, whorled leaves and reddish brown roots.  Madder's vintage warmth pairs beautifully with a pop of purple, a cool green print, or a slice of cheddar, to create a multi-colored scrappy quilt design with wonderful "modern vintage" appeal
