As you’ve noticed around here at the Works, we’ve been hyping one of our most recent fabric collection releases from this past year, American Made Brand solids!! Clothworks is excited to offer consumers a fabric that is literally rooted and anchored here in the USA! At no point in the process, from cotton fields to finished fabric on bolts ready to ship to your local quilt shop, does the production go off-shore! Clothworks will be highlighting the American Made Brand solid fabrics at the International Quilt Market in Houston, TX set to take place this weekend, October 25th- 27th, 2014. For those of you who won’t be able to make it to Market, here’s another sneak peek of what will be shown in the Clothworks booth. Pictured here, made in some gorgeous AMB solids, is a quilt entitled ‘Pinwheel Jam’ designed by Emily Breclaw of The Caffeinated Quilted.
You might remember Emily from this summer’s American Made Brand Blog Tour/ Roadtrip. She represented her state Texas and is quite a talented and prolific quilter! I’m loving the optical illusions that Emily has created in this quilt design by playing with the various hues and shades offered in the American Made Brand solid collection. Check out what Emily has to say about her inspiration and process in her blog post about Pinwheel Jam and head over to her site on Craftsy to purchase the pattern for download, too!
Before this quilt was packed away to be taken to display in Houston, I snapped one more pic–up close of the quilting- as it adds another layer of complexity to this vibrant quilt design. Emily’s beautiful quilt Pinwheel Jam was brought to life by the exquisite quilting of her long-arm quilter, Amy Jameson!
If you’re lucky to attend the International Quilt Festival this weekend in Houston, please stop by the Clothworks booth #244 to admire this lovely quilt and say hi! And while you’re at Quilt Market, be sure to view the juried exhibition of quilts on display in the Farm to Fabric Challenge using American Made Brand solid fabrics!
