Adventures in Hexagons Blog Tour & Giveaway!

Welcome to Day 4 of the “Adventures in Hexagons” Blog Tour!  Clothworks is excited to promote our friend Emily Breclaw’s newest book, Adventures in Hexagons, released this year by C & T Publishing.   Emily, also known as the Caffeinated Quilter, has a passion for hexagon quilts!  Read about how her love affair with the hexagon quilt developed in her post on the C&T Publishing blog.

You may remember Emily from our American Made Brand License Plate Quilt Blog Tour a few years ago.   Emily was our Texas quilt blogger contributing a license plate block that captured the iconic Lone Star state flag with hexagons pieced to resemble the state flowers.

Emily’s passion for hexagon quilts continued to blossom through the years and now she has just published her first book filled with beautiful hexie quilt designs, clever techniques, and loads of inspiration! Clothworks is thrilled that 2 quilts included in Adventures in Hexagons were sampled using our Laurel Burch Basics.

‘Fractured Kaleidoscope’ is Vibrant in Laurel Burch Basics!

front cover

We’re thrilled to see this gorgeous quilt made in Laurel Burch Basics grace the cover of the January 2016 edition of American Quilter Magazine!  In her quilt entitled, ‘Fractured Kaleidoscope’, designer Emily Breclaw made gorgeous use of the range of vibrant basic fabrics that Clothworks carries under the Laurel Burch line.  You might even remember Emily from the AMB Blog Hop tour— she was our Texas representative!

Head to your favorite newsstand to pick up an issue of American Quilter Magazine, Jan. 2016 edition, to see how to make this brilliant quilt.  I’m sure there are quite a few Laurel Burch fans out there that are collecting a stack of her basics in their stashes that would be put to good use in this quilting!  If you’re more of the digital type, you can even purchase the magazine online.  And if you don’t have the time to sift through your stash, it appears there’s a ‘Fractured Kaleidoscope’ kit sold online, too.  Make sure to stop by designer Emily Breclaw’s inspiration site, The Caffeinated Quilter, to see what other fun creations she has cooked up, too!


Clothworks Basics Shine in ‘Boxed Jewels’ Quilt


Boxed Jewels quilt from Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts Spring 2015 edition.

Besides carrying a range of eclectic printed fabric collections and the new line of made in the USA solid cottons called American Made Brand solids, Clothworks stocks a plethora of basic fabrics year-long.  From jazzy Laurel Burch basics in brights & metallics to watercolor-like batik tonals called Minerals, there’s definitely something to cater to everyone’s taste.  Just browse through our basics selection on the Clothworks website by clicking the pic below to see for yourself!

Yet another visually-stunning, but simple block quilt, ‘Boxed Jewels’ shown at the top of the post is found in the spring 2015 issue of Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts.  Designed by our talented quilting friend, Rochelle Martin, she makes wonderful use in her easy block design of those rich, jewel-toned Laurel Burch basics and lush Mineral Batiks that Clothworks offers in the Basics category.  Head to this link to purchase the digital download of this pattern or purchase the quilt kit!
