(Keep reading the full post for the GIVEAWAY below!!)

Halloween might be just 2 days away, but here at Clothworks, we’ve been shipping the Valentines-inspired fabric collection, All My Heart by Iron Orchid Designs.  With a stunning color combo of pink, red, baby blue, cream, and black coloring a lovely print selection of adorable dots, sketched hearts, and typewriters writing sweet love letters, the new release from the dynamic design duo of Iron Orchid Designs is sure to steal your heart!!  Although October’s not quite over yet, and with Christmas on the way, we’re hoping by sending out All My Heart to your favorite LQS (Local Quilt Shop), this will nudge the procrastinators or inspire the early-bird crafty types to make something cute just in time for Valentines Day!  Make sure you click on the ‘Find a Shop’ button as circled in red in the picture above to find a list of shops that are selling these adorable fabrics.

Already feeling drained from a marathon Halloween costume-making session?  Leave it to Clothworks to help inspire you with some fun projects using All My Heart fabrics.  Just check out the selection of independent patterns we’ve chosen that fair well with the prints in this collection.  If you’re interested, be sure to click on each project to find information on where to buy the pattern and how much fabric yardage of All My Heart is required to make it.

Projects featuring Independent Pattern Designs. Scroll to the bottom of the All My Heart fabric collection page on the Clothworks website.


Perhaps the Happy Holidays Table Topper and Natalie’s Napkins by Atkinson Designs would make for a simple project to whip up just in time for Valentines Day using All My Hearts fabric?  These patterns use some fat quarters, so shouldn’t be too hard to make, right?

Did someone say Fat Quarters?!!  Well, you’re in luck, because Clothworks is hosing a giveaway with a sweet prize for one lucky winner!

Aubrey Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway!!

Aubrey Fat Quarter giveaway


Clothworks new release, Aubrey by Skipping Stones Studio, has been shipping to a local quilt shop near you!  Maybe it’s the gorgeous feminine floral bloom prints, the charming polka dots, or the old-fashioned tonal Paisley prints (from the coordinating collection called Paisley, also released by Skipping Stones Studio) that give this line a ‘Shabby Chic’ look! As this fabric flies off the shelf and some of the prints begin to sell out, I was lucky enough to snag some fabric to make a beautiful little bundle for a little giveaway.  Maybe my luck will carry over to one special winner of this contest!

To enter the contest, please abide by the following:

1)  Leave one comment only on this post.  Please tell me your favorite style(s) of fabric print design — are you a Shabby Chic Romantic?  A Modern Girl?  A Retro Lover?  Batik Enthusiast?  Or maybe I left off a category.  I’m dying to know!!

2)  Please only comment if you have a USA shipping address.

3)  Comment by Thursday October 23, 2014 at 11:59 PM, PDT

4)  One fat quarter bundle of Aubrey and Paisley fabrics (as shown above) will be awarded to one contestant chosen at random from the comments.  The lucky winner will be announced here on the Works this Friday October 24, 2014!
