I Become A Color Whisperer from The Snarky Quilter

After years of avoiding color theory practice (the practice means you have to make a color wheel) I finally broke down and signed up for Jane Davies’ downloadable class, “Unlocking The Secrets of Color.” I have to say that color … Continue reading

Matching Fabrics Part 3: Using Elements (blenders) from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi, fabric lovers!

Elements-2020 BLOG

Welcome back to my “Matching Fabrics” series! This has been quite a ride, with such an overwhelming response since the start, I am very excited to be continuing and sharing my knowledge. In my last blog post, we spoke about how important scale was and how to use it. In the last part of that blog, we spoke about the small-scale fabric prints and in this section, I wanted to dive deeper into what that is and how they are also considered a blender fabric.

First, let's talk about the definition of a blender fabric. These ...

Color and Design from Where Art & Life Meet

When I was working as a contributing editor at Elle Magazine, the Fashion Director called me out loudly in front of the entire staff. She asked me if I was color blind, not in a concerned way, but as an accusation meant to humiliate, and demonstrate just how awful she thought my sense of color… Continue reading Color and Design

Matching Fabrics Part 2: Scale from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Welcome back, fabric friends!

I just want to quickly say thank you for everyone’s kind comments and feedback on my last blog post, Matching Fabrics Part 1: Color, it makes me so happy that you found it helpful.

Well, you have to think about it like colors, the busier a print is, the more dominant color will be visible, which means you have to visually balance it with another fabric print that ...

Matching Fabrics Part 1: Color from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Welcome back, fabric friends! 

One of my favorite things about my job is being able to step into the warehouse and grab a variety of different prints to create a new group that excites me to sew something together. I'm lucky enough to step into a warehouse of fabrics, but I’m sure everyone here has their fabric warehouse of their own (haha) and you may be struggling on how to use it up together. 

Being able to work here at AGF, I’ve gotten the opportunity to work with such talented people and watch a collection from start ...

Fat Quarter Quilts! Tips for Choosing Fabric … watch Stephanie do a fabric pull from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Scrappy and fat quarter quilts are so much fun to make, but choosing fabric that looks nice together can be one of the hardest parts of the process.

In today’s bonus video, Stephanie turned the camera on while she narrowed 42 fat quarters from Tula Pink’s True Colors collection down to 14 for a quilt she is working on for her next book.

The video is a little different format than we normally make because I literally only have an idea of what I want for color when we start, and you get a peak into my thought ...
