Sue Zipkin’s Tangier Give-a-way and More!

The universe must be in a giving mood this week!  We’ve got the ‘Home is in the Kitchen’ FQP give-a-way currently going on here at The Works, and this just in….Designer Sue Zipkin is hosting a little giveaway on her blog with a gorgeous bundle of Tangier fat quarters up for grabs!!

Sue’s recent Clothworks fabric release, Tangier, has hit the shops and the demand for it has not ceased.  Maybe it’s those beautiful bold colors used in the prints that attract your eye:  cobalt blue, brick red, aqua, and lime all grounded together with white.  Paired with Sue’s sweetly whimsical flower illustrations, multi-color dots, ethnic-inspired stripes, and tonal scroll prints- Tangier is a real winner!!  As I got to talking with Sue, she shared with me that her artwork used for Tangier has also been released in other forms of media besides fabric.  I was so curious to see how it translated, I begged her for pictures!!

Sue was very kind enough to share all of these beautiful photos that she snapped so I could show you, our faithful Clothworks blog followers, how well her artwork translates into other markets besides fabric.

For instance, there’s a whole dinnerware collection that’s out now in shops, using the same artwork and similar colors to Tangier.  So when you’ve finished making your Tangier table runner, napkins, and place mats, why not buy the matching dinner set?

This one below is my favorite…but I don’t think the kitty’s for purchase!

There’s also a lovely stationery line just released called ‘Home is Where Our Story Begins’ which uses Sue’s artwork for Tangier.  So when you’ve stitched that gift for someone special made from Clothworks Tangier fabric, you can pair it with a matching note!

As you can see, Sue is extremely gifted- her illustration, photography, and use of color!  Seeing her gorgeous artwork used in the Tangier line of fabric by Clothworks, as well as in dinnerware and stationery, just goes to show!!

  1. Hey, I enjoy making applique kitchen towels and hate buying off the bolt. Sometimes fat quarters just seem too darn expensive, but I like a wide variety of colors and patterns for the work I do.
