So many gorgeous new collections!!!

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!12-Days-of-Xmas

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.

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.

AvalonB1Last, 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.

  1. I love the new happy camper collection best! It is unique to all the other fabric I have.
    Urban Landscapes would work up well with some of my stash. All are good.

  2. I really like the diggers and dozers. I love to make quilts for children, because they are bright and fun and when they look at them, their expressions are just precious.

    Thank you.

  3. Urban Landscapes is my favourite pick of the collections. The colour combinations are just what I have been looking for. Now I will be sidetracked creating designs in my thoughts instead of organizing this sewing room of mine.

  4. Oh my GOODNESS! I’ve been a HUGE Kathy York fan for ages and dye all my own fabrics. I have quit buying commercial prints at all except for some batik but those are AMAZING!! What can I buy?

  5. Into the Woods! Beautiful! I’ll be waiting for this collection to come out to make throw pillows and a lap quilt for the living room.

    Everything looks lovely though, nice work designers & Clothworks!

  6. I love the 12 Days of Christmas by talented Sharyn Sowell. Wish we could get it in Australia – We have Christmas here, too! Do you stock any shops Down Under?

  7. Wishing I didn’t have to wait for “Avalon”. What a wonderful grouping to tell us that winter is ending and color will fill our world again. I will have to have it for next winter to remind me of summer.

  8. I LOOOOVVVVEEEE the new Avalon collection by Pamela Mostek!!!! All the purples and pinks and yellows = SPRING!!!!! After all of this winter/snow I am deffinitely ready for some flowers and some Spring!

  9. How can anyone choose as each one has their own stamp of personality, But being that Spring is just around the corner and I’m making Springtime quilts right now , I would have to choose Avalon . as it has that POP to each print and would work well with so many other fabric lines as , I always look for fabrics that work well in conjuction with others , and Avalon has that versalility to it and the prints dont overwell any of the others ,This is what I look for when choosing prints to be used with other fabric lines when I am in need of a print and or 2 to complete my fabric choices. and AVALON is that fabric line .

  10. I love all of the collections. But I would have to choose the Diggers and Dozers as my favorite. My grandson loves anything to do with trucks or any type of transporation.

    A lap quilt would be fun to make using these fabrics. He loves to cuddle under quilts and blankets.

  11. Kathy York’s Urban Landscapes fabric is just great! I’ve been admiring her quilts for years and it is awesome to know I can have some of her fabrics so very soon!

  12. Love Avalon and Toy Poodles …brings Spring to mind after living with lots of snow for several months now. My grandson would be thrilled with a quilt made from the Diggers and Dozzers. Then of course, some of the rest would go great in my stash.

  13. Urban Landscapes!! I cannot wait to get this collection! I see a fun, summer applique, with big suns smiling on funky houses below & flowers pointing to the heavans in glee!!!
    Delicious & so fun!!!

  14. Just love all your fabrics. When Jeff came to visit, I bought more than I had intended. Love the 12 Days of Christmas, Diggers and Dozers, Happy Camper and the rest of the groups I bought! Can’t wait to see what’s new at Spring Market!!
