Oh Clementine!

Print

I finally get to show you some Oh Clementine

This is my second fabric collection for Windham Fabrics.  It will be showing at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh, and shipping in early September.  I’m really, really happy with this collection…the colors and prints have that “fresh farmhouse” feel that suit me perfectly.

Ruffle Dishtowels

Oh Clementine Dress

My Mom saved the day and swooped in to make a few things for me to photograph for the Look book (link coming soon!).

Did I mention having my parents 5 minutes away is the best thing ever?  It might also be the reason they take so many vacations now.  ;)

Stack o' Quilts

I have some quilts to show you in the next couple of weeks…and a recipe for the Lemon Cheesecake I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner yesterday.

Oh Clementine, Windham Fabrics

I turned my artwork in for this line the end of last summer after working on it for months, little by little.  I knew what I wanted with this line…and Windham let me roll with it and have free reign…which is amazing for a manufacturer and I’m so grateful to them.

Just looking at these colors makes me ready for summer…now!  Happy Quilting!

As always, I love everything you do! How do you do it, do you stalk me or something? I'm sure you would have plenty of time to do that with the kids, patterns, fabric, etc. Curious, will the scraps from these go well with Wallflowers? Oh wait, I need actually cut into the Wallflower fabrics to have scraps.

It's such a pretty line, Allison! 30s prints are my favorite but I love updated fresh modern 30s inspires even better! I like the name of the line--my sister and I had two dogs when we were growing up, Rosebud and Clementine. My birthday is September 10th so you know what I'll be asking for:). And kudos to windham for letting you be the designer!

Just saw this new fabric line over on Hawthorne Threads website and the lookbook. I like it even better than your first line! Great to see the ditsy prints and blenders in the line, along with that splash of red. Excellent!
