    You can always tell when we're coming up on Quilt Market... because the new designs get posted on the manufacturers' websites! This one is designed by Linda Quigley of The Rabbit Factory, and it's supposed to be shipping to stores in September. As always, Clothworks does have a free pattern available, and this particular one would be very easy to adapt to work with whatever you have in your stash. http://clothworks.com/pdfs/patterns/...ardenquilt.pdf

    Here come the pictures. Let me know what you think of this group!

    You know, I have to agree. Though I sort of like them, they remind me a lot of the fabrics I first purchased in the early eighties. But Clothworks is not the only company doing this sort of return to ditsy calicoes.

    In all fairness the country look is not my favorite, but the bee fabric is quite fun.

    If I were a buyer, I would probably take a second look at the focus fabrics and skip most of this collection unless the shop sold quite a bit of the Thimbleberry style lines.

    I think I'd pass on these. Tired of peaches and rusts, etc. Don't care for the bees either. Does look like Thimbleberries stuff.

    I was thinking that the larger flowers on the brown and the dark red are nice. I like the bee print, but they don't show up on the brown, the coral-pink is a hard color to love, and the green is just to wishy-washy.

    I really just like those two sunflowers! I think they stand well enough on their own.
