Guess How Much I Love You III, the latest Clothworks release featuring the whimsical rabbits by children’s book illustrator Anita Jeram, has just delivered to our quilt shops.  Our multi-talented Clothworks employee & Shipper Extraordinaire, Debbie, had a project in mind when she spotted the new fabric in our warehouse and immediately got to work.  In just a few days, Debbie whipped up this sweet baby quilt!

ghmily3-debbie-quiltSix fat quarters from the GHMILY3 line were used to make the half square triangles, with additional border fabric and a soft flannel print for backing & binding.  Debbie followed this quick & easy beginner level quilt tutorial, and away she went– piecing and quilting her project on her home sewing machine!  A family member due with her first child will be the lucky recipient of this quilt.  Nice work and thanks for sharing, Debbie!

Be sure to stock up on the new Guess How Much I Love You III collection before it sells out.  Find a local quilt shop by visiting our online store directory.

One of our multi-talented employees here at the Works, Debbie from Shipping., brought in this gorgeous patchwork totebag and I just had to share it with you.   Using fabrics from an older Clothworks release, the autumn-inspired Wild Figs by Karen Roti, Debbie churned out this beautiful bag in just one weekend!go-everywhere-bag-collageFlipping through an old edition of Fons & Porter’s Quilting Quickly from spring 2015, Debbie spotted the Go Everywhere Bag project and was inspired to create.  The magazine may be a back issue, but thank Fons & Porter for archiving it on their website here.  Follow this link for to download the pattern, and better yet, watch the free video tutorial for helpful construction tips!

Nice Work, Debbie!  Thank you for sharing.
