Reignite the Wild Forgotten with Bonnie Christine’s Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

WildForgotten_banner copy

By being a creative person by nature, I will always have a deeper appreciation for art! Textile designs are unique in the way that you can feel the fabric, feel inspired, and manipulate it to transform into something even more beautiful! Every time a new collection is released, I’m thrilled to be one of the first ones to see the fabric because I instantly think of all the patchwork projects that can be created with it. This time around, when I saw Bonnie Christine’s latest collection, Wild forgotten, its wondrous prints and earthy colors made me instantly swoon ...

IMG_1250 blog

Hi, Makers! 

 

The holidays are around the corner and it’s that time of the year where we makers really shine!

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 ...

Twenty_banner copy

When surrounded by such a creative team, I’ve gained so much appreciation when a concept is brought to life!

As makers, we can all relate to this, to think back to where we started off and how far we’ve come with our newfound skills. So, let’s take a moment and give yourself a pat on the back for everything you’ve accomplished!

Weaving: Multi-color Yarn Scarf on a Rigid Heddle Loom from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Now for something completely different (as Monty Python would say)! I’m usually blogging about a quilting project I’m working on, but I’m taking a little deviation from quilting to learn something completely new to me … weaving.

While my sister was visiting, she won (in a local drawing) a weaving lesson to make a scarf with two colors of alpaca yarn…thank you Fevolden Farms LCC. Seeing her weaving process sparked my interest.

So, we found a lovely weaving shop in Palmyra, The Hook & Shuttle. Jay (the shop owner) was so helpful, patient with all our questions, and ...

New Home… New Projects from Nikki, In Stitches

Moving (hopefully one last time) was always a possibility for us, but it had to be the perfect scenario: a little more house, in the same school district, in a neighborhood just as friendly as the one we would be leaving.

  • A little more house because let’s be honest, going in and out of lockdown the last 18 months has everyone wanting a little more space, right?
  • In the same school district because my kids love it here, but honestly…I love my town even more than they do. I can’t imagine calling any other place home.

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 ...

AccuquiltGo Sawtooth Star: Get Mileage Out of the Dies You Own from Mulberry Patch Quilts

You’ll see in my recent posts that I’m obsessed with learning how much mileage I can get with my Accuquilt GO!Cutter and the dies I already own.

I love the simplicity of the Sawtooth Star block and so I decided to see if I could design some pieced items with it using the dies I have.

Although I don’t own the 8” Go!Cube, I have almost all the shapes (see those in bold print on the list below). The only one shape I was missing was for the “flying geese” part of the star: the ...
