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.

Happy Sewing!

Cuddle Me Lux quilt from Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts Spring 2015 edition

Brrrrrrr!!!! If you’re shivering away in your neck of the woods right now, here’s a super warm & fuzzy quilt to cuddle up in!  The simple block design of the Cuddle Me Lux quilt, by Lorrie Franz, uses fabric from the first Clothworks release of Guess How Much I Love You with the addition of the Guess How Much I Love You Lux Cuddle fabric, also released by Clothworks. What’s unique about this quilt design is the use of the Guess How Much I Love You Lux Cuddle fabric.  With its luxurious pile in the allover print of the adorable bunnies from the Guess How Much I Love You book illustrated by Anita Jeram, this fabric adds some serious soft-to-the-touch texture to this cute quilt!

The Cuddle Me Lux quilt featured on page 86 of Fon’s & Porter’s Easy Quilts Spring 2015 is just one of the many simple quilt projects featured in this magazine, out now on news stands.  Cuddle Me Lux  is a fairly easy pattern that showcases the bunny rabbits in the Guess How Much I Love You Lux Cuddle fabric using some strategic fussy-cutting to make panel blocks.  If you’re snowed in and can’t get to your favorite local quilt shop, you can purchase the digital download of the pattern here at this link, from the comfort of your home.

Be sure to check your local quilt shop for the Guess How Much I Love You Lux Cuddle, that is, after the thaw.  And if you’re lucky, you might still be able to find some of the first release of Guess How Much I Love You by Clothworks.  If you weren’t as quick as the hare to snag it, have no fear–  Clothworks is releasing an updated version due out at your local quilt shop sometime this summer (well after the winter thaw) called Guess How Much I Love You II .

Now hop to it!
