Spring Quilt Market 2013: Clothworks – Penguin and Fish

Alyssa Thomas of Penguin and Fish has been one of my favorites since I met her at her first Quilt Market, three years ago. She was one of the very first to show modern embroidery patterns at Market and her whimsically wonderful, frequently oversized designs of critters quickly caught on—they’re simple enough for new embroiderers, [...]

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 [...]

I can see this going older or younger depending on the combination of prints, and all together it’s a [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Clothworks

The Clothworks booth really caught my eye. They were one of the few booths to showcase a modern, all solids, quilt and that choice allowed their organic solids to shine (ETA:  Lizzy pointed out that this is her mom Cherry House‘s City Scapes pattern … thanks Lizzy!) Clothworks’ Everyday Organic Solids are 100% GOTS certified and [...]

Well, not only do we now have a name (Safari Sweet), a preview, and a release date (August 2011), but also news that the collection is the first for a new organic brand that [...]
