Be prepared to be “WOWED”, because the latest batch of new collections is up on the web, and they are simply dazzling!! September took some wonderful photos of our sales boards and strike offs, so sit back, relax, and take in the latest beauties from the fabulous Clothworks designers!
Here is Twelve Days of Christmas by Sharyn Sowell, delivering to quilt shops near you June 2010. I LOVE IT! Did you know that Sharyn is a paper artist, and she cuts all of these delicate designs out of paper with little tiny scissors? Let me tell you, she is one talented lady. She is also a very gifted photographer and has a beautiful way with words–check out her blog for some great inspiration!
Here is another one by Sharyn called Into the Woods. What a great collection to make a guy quilt! Isn’t it impossible to find good fabrics for guy quilts that aren’t too girly, yet sophisticated enough to make a beautiful quilt that looks gorgeous in your home? This collection is both elegant and beautiful.
Next is a new artist to Clothworks, the award-winning art quilter Kathy York! Her debut collection with Clothworks is Urban Landscapes which is inspired by her own hand-dyed fabrics. Stay tuned for an interview and photos later next week when I introduce this extraordinary artist! Urban Landscapes comes out June 2010. In the mean time, catch up with Kathy on her blog!!
Now for some fun in the sun with Happy Camper Too by Richard Neuman. The first Happy Camper was such a huge hit, and I love this newer version even better! Aren’t the little fireflies adorable?!! This one comes out in June 2010.
This next one is also by Richard Neuman, and it’s called Diggers and Dozers. It comes out July 2010, just in time for my little one’s first birthday!! I think I’ll have to make something super adorable for him–maybe a little baby baseball cap, pants, and a basic quilt using the panel to throw out on the grass for him to play on?
And here is the lovely Avalon by the lovely Pamela Mostek! What heavenly colors! I can think of endless possibilities for this one…starting with a new tote bag! Mmm…and maybe a new quilt for my bed for a change–all the quilts I’ve made lately seem to be for other people!! Avalon delivers to quilt shops in July 2010.
Last, but certainly not least, is Toy Poodle by our Japanese distributor Kinkame. Ok, seriously have you ever seen anything cuter? I just adore the little kitty faces and duckies! SO SO SO CUTE! This fun one will be delivering to quilt shops in April 2010.
