Oh Clementine!

Oh Clementine Fabric
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.


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.  ;)


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.
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!

    These are adorable fabrics, Allison — I especially love the sunflowers with button centers. And I know what you mean about having Mom close by. Grammy to the Rescue is a wonderful thing! :-)

    Congratulations on your new line. It's lively, fun, cool full and yet has a good grounded feeling with the softness of the brights. It looks great.

  11. Melissa Miller April 22, 2014 at 6:07 pm #

    Sweet fabric. My great great grandmother was named Clementine. Her granddaughter (my grandmother) shared it as her middle name.

  40. Johanna April 23, 2014 at 12:48 am #

    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.

  41. SeaBreeze Quilts April 23, 2014 at 1:09 am #

    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!

  64. Sallie B. April 23, 2014 at 1:56 pm #

    Congratulations! Your fabric is beautiful–definitely worth waiting for! Especially love the towels with double frills; only problem is, they're too pretty to use. ;-)

  102. Sarah May 12, 2014 at 2:10 pm #

    Lovely fabrics, and your Mum has done a great job sewing up some accessories. I moved to live five minutes from my parents, and now they go on so many more holidays too! What's with that?!

  103. terrieannie September 4, 2014 at 10:10 pm #

    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!

  104. Mary Clark March 13, 2015 at 1:09 pm #

    Hi, Allison, I recently read through your blog, pinning as I went. I ordered Clementine fabric and did a copy cat of your Mom's beautiful kitchen towels. I'd like to write a blog post along with the tutorial I put together, and of course will link back to you as fabric designer and this post … with your permission, if that's okay.
    Thanks, Mary

  105. allison March 13, 2015 at 9:37 pm #

    Mary – I would love that! Go right ahead and send me the link I'd love to see it when you do!! Happy sewing – Allison
