AGF Gift of Giving from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

IMG_1250 blog

Hi, Makers! 

 

The holidays are around the corner and it’s that time of the year where we makers really shine! Today, I would love to talk about something a little different, deeper than just sewing, and it’s about the wonderful gift of giving. What it really means to make something with your heart and hands and give them to the people you love and appreciate. Last year was a very difficult one, due to the pandemic affecting every one of us. Most of us couldn’t spend holidays at home with our families as some are sick and ...

Cutting Pieces – Terracotta Fiori Quilt Along from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Last week we decided on the layout we’re going to make and picked out our fabrics. This week, we’re cutting them up so that we can sew them back together. This is my favorite part of quilting. Well — if my favorite rotary cutter is working and has a fresh, new blade.

The prize this as we are week is a rotating cutting mat, ruler, and rotary cutter. 

Cutting Pieces for the Terracotta Fiori Quilt Along

Pre-Iron Your Fabrics

First, you need to iron your fabrics to get all the folds and krinkles out. For this quilt I only used a spray bottle of water.

Penny Sampler - Stitched in Color from Quiltmanufaktur

Jetzt haben wir schon bald das Ende des Jahres 2021 und den Penny Sampler, den ich nach dem Pattern von Rachel Hauser - Stitched in Color bereits letztes Jahr gemacht habe, ist hier noch nicht aufgetaucht....


Dieses coole Pattern hat Rachel als Pattern Club mit zwei verschiedenen Versionen in ihrem Shop angeboten. Man bekam jeden Monat einzelne Blöcke mit extrem ausführlichen Anleitungen per Mail geschickt. Die beiden Versionen - 'Nordic und Dutch' - unterschieden sich vornehmlich in den jeweiligen Blöcken. Das Layout, das Rachel vorschlug, war bei beiden gleich. Im Prinzip hätte man also zwei verschieden Quilts machen können! Der Aufwand an Arbeit ...

Blog-photos_01 IMG_9014-Modified copy
Hi, Makers! 

Spooky season is here! One of my favorite holidays is Halloween because we get to do so many fun projects here at the studio. This time around the marketing team and I were thinking about all the projects we can create this season so we started looking for inspiration at things we’ve done in the past! 

That’s when we came across a super sweet quilt block I sewed for Instagram! Where I pieced some strips of Halloween-inspired colors from our Pure Solids range, applied Decostitch Elements in “Stellar” on top, and reverse appliqued to reveal the ...

Zen Mode with Vert Fusion Fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Vert_banner (1) copy

Hi, fabric friends!

Here at AGF, we love coming up with innovative designs and pushing the definition of what low volume prints mean, so we added a little spice! In some of our past Fusions, we released collections like Ballerina Fusion and Serenity Fusion that were based on the same idea but with a twist. Ballerina Fusion had a hint of pink, Serenity Fusion had a tint of blue, and now with our latest release of Vert Fusion, our approach was sage and aloe tones. 

If you’re new to AGF, our Fusions are a mixture of prints from other ...
