A Star is Born

We know you love the Marblehead prints, but have you seen Ro Gregg's ''A Star is Born'' fabrics? They're in the Marblehead family, rich with texture and color.

"I wanted to design a Marblehead pattern with the true look of artisan-quality quilts, using bold, beautiful marbles,'' Ro says. ''I added the 'Midas Touch' metallic overprint for an updated look."

What does this effect create? Star quality that combines geometric motifs with an upscale, contemporary look.

Ro's favorite: the starburst tile, full of depth and illusion, which comes in four colorways.
Hollywood Star: Vibrant multidimensional hues of
caribbean turquoise, orange flame, sunny yellow,
lime green, and dramatic black

Sundance Star: Sensational shades kissed by the sun in
fuchsia, bright pinks, orange flame, sunshine yellow,
and jungle green

Star of Valor: A salute to our armed forces!
Red, white and blue never looked so good

Tiffany Star: Even a Tiffany window doesn't compare to
these hues of cobalt blue, palace purple, lime, caribbean
blue and mediterranean blue

If you love these prints as much as we do, check out the quilt Terry Albers made using the Sundance Star colorway. The quilt uses large squares of the starburst print--fussy cut it and it will do all the work for you!
