Sheryl Johnson of Temecula Quilt Co takes quilters back in time with her collection, Material Madders from Marcus Fabrics. 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. This fabric features a geometric tile design in brown and red. 100% Cotton, 44" Wide.
