Thank you all so very much for your lovely comments!! I, too, really enjoy that collection and everyone at Clothworks is excited to see it getting doubled and rolled–one step closer to stores and your sewing machines!
The random number generator produced the number 4 so the 4th person to comment is the lucky winner!! I guess the early bird gets the worm on this one. Congratulations Lucy D.!! We’ll be in touch with you about your mailing address!

Though I could go on and on about all of what I saw at Quilt Market (my first one!), I think I’d rather share with all of you what others are saying. There have been quite a few lovely blog posts full of pictures, ideas and praise for designers, new collections, sewers and thoughts on what’s trending. I think I’ll leave it up to those folks to tell you more.
True Up: Kim has been featuring fabric companies, quilt designers and the like. Her posts all have tons of delicious photos and I particularly like this one about a quilt designer whose work is very striking, Carolyn Friedlander.
The Long Thread: Here’s a blog with lots of high quality content that is fresh on an almost daily basis. If you scroll down to the bottom of this one, you’ll read a little blurb on her thoughts about organic fabric. I second her on that one! And, she’d like to see magazines and fabric companies mixing collections in their quilt and project designs. I heard that more than once while at Market and it really resonates for me, too.
Generation Q: Despite having just put out a lovely first edition of their new print mag, Gen Q continues to pack their blog with great content. This post just happens to mention us (YAY!) and features the Picnic Pals FREE Quilt Pattern so I am, of course, partial to it, but there is also a really darling picture of pattern coming out of Oliver + S’s new branch: The Straight Stitch Society.
