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.

Show & Tell: Some Inspiration for the Weekend

Faithfully Yours- Tina

Our quilting friend, Tina, emailed this stunning pic of one of her recent creations using the new collection from Clothworks by Barb Tourtillotte called Faithfully Yours!  Not only did Tina’s email brighten my day, but with the vibrant colors, gorgeous flowers, and inspirational sayings in the fabric prints in this collection, it gives me faith that Spring is just around the corner!

Tina followed no pattern to create this small pieced quilt top.  She simply added one of the coordinating tonal prints in Faithfully Yours for the sashing around the block print blocks, then added two borders.  Do you notice the yellow inner border fabric?  I love how Tina used the paw prints from Dogs & Doggies by Laurel Burch.  It works very nicely with the bright palette in the Faithfully Yours collection!

Well done, Tina!  Thank you for sharing your project with us.  Here’s hoping you feel sew inspired to create.  Head to this link to find a local quilt shop that stocks Faithfully Yours today.

Happy Sewing!
