Fall Quilt Market 2012: Clothworks

As we saw with many companies this Market, Clothworks featured solids. Their goal is to offer their collection, Everyday Organic Solids, at an affordable price. Their organic fabric is surprisingly soft to the touch!

The Clothworks booth featured two quilts made from their solids.  I love the colorful sawtooth stars of varying sizes — especially the larger ones.

The orange, white, purple and green “squares within squares” quilt feels a bit like an optical illusion.

Did you know that Laurel Burch Inspirations is a part of Clothworks? Well, neither did I! The two geometric quilts presented made with Laurel Burch fabrics and accented with a black solid are quite modern.

Clothworks generally produces fabric designs by painters and fine artists and also feature modern novelty designs. Among their new collections was Chinoise, a sweet collection of petite flowers and birdcages, and a modern, novelty collection geared toward boys called Little Surfer Boy.

And yet another surprise — Clothworks works with a Japanese design house called Kinkame.  Their new collection featured at Market is called European Taupe IX.

Last but not least, Clothworks is currently running a Pinterest contest on its website.  Good luck!
