Spotted in the latest edition of Quiltmaker Magazine– September/October 2016, is this adorable quilt called ‘Georgie Giraffe’ designed by Deb Grogan.  Ever since grandchildren entered the picture for her, Deb has been inspired to design and create quilts for little ones.  What makes this quilt a stand-out is the mix of a traditional block design with a whimsical animal applique design that has three-dimensional features to it (notice those darling 3-D giraffe ears).

Quilt designer Deb Grogan not only has created a quilt oozing with cuteness, but has managed to make great use of the cheery colors found in the various Clothworks Basics color palettes.  American Made Brand solid cottons, Impressions Moire, and Everyday Organic Solids are just some of the Clothworks fabrics that breathe life into this sweet crib-sized quilt.

color cards clothworks

After a successful showing of the American Made Brand fabric line at Quilt Festival in Houston this past weekend, Clothworks is pleased to take part in The Sourcing District in Nashville, TN on Friday November 13 – Saturday November 14, 2015.  Nashville Fashion Alliance member Jay Arbetman will be showing various Clothworks fabric lines (some shown above) at this fashion & garment-centric show.  Soft, drapey cottons in vibrant & muted solids & tonals alike, are just some of the offerings that Clothworks hopes to appeal to this wider fabric audience.



Clothworks is especially pleased to offer American Made Brand solid fabric.  This 100% cotton woven is both grown and made, right here in the United States of America!  Not only will the vivid, saturated solid colors of this line visually entice you, but the tight weave, thread count, and soft hand feel will certainly lure you, too!


The best part is that American Made Brand fabric supports the U.S. cotton farmers and mills, restoring jobs back to a thriving local economy!
