Oh ya, that's right, the very first taste of our completed Wallflowers fabric collection!!!
So here's a little bit of trivia for you. Our fabric is printed in a plant in Korea. Once the yardage is all printed and ready, we (as the designers) are air shipped some fabric directly from the plant. It arrives to us about 6 weeks before the rest of the fabric arrives at the Clothworks warehouse in Seattle. As we speak, the fabric is in a container, on a ship, crossing the ocean.
Once it arrives to to the Clothworks warehouse, it must be folded and rolled onto bolts, labeled and prepared for sale to the quilt shops around the world that have ordered it!!
In the meantime, we get to whip up a few things to take with us to Quilt Market, so other shop owners can be inspired by our collection!
Here is the very first quilt we whipped up using Wallflowers:
This is the FREE pattern that you will be able to download from the Clothworks website just as soon as the fabric is released and available! And if you are a store owner and going to Portland, Oregon for Spring Quilt Market, you will have a chance to WIN this quilt!! Thats right - visit the Clothworks booth, or our booth (1419) for more details!!
As well, we chose two of our very favourite simple patterns and made them up using more of the Wallflowers fabric!
Hopscotch is our best selling, most popular pattern. It uses 12 fat quarters and 1 m of fabric! Easy to make, everything is cut the same and sewn the same! It finishes at that perfect lap sized, 56" x 65".
It's a great way to showcase a collection or use up fat quarters!
The next quilt we whipped up is called Strip Joint. Again a great way to showcase fabrics!
We are very excited about this collection!! We think it's rich and delicious!! We adore the reds, Love the browns!! Think that the tone on tone fabrics are going to be a great addition to everyone stash (we ordered extra for our store!!) The large prints make amazing borders and backings and the small prints are perfect anywhere! We hope you love it as much as we do!!!
