Adventure Waits with Bonnie Christine's "The Open Road" from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Have you ever been on a road trip that just inspired you so much? There's something just so exciting about packing up, jumping behind the steering wheel and heading out on an unforgettable adventure. Windows down, music up...observing all the sounds, sights, smells..as you drive through quiet forests, open fields, majestic mountains, serene deserts...welcoming spontaneity and the unexpected. Trips like this often bring new perspectives and creative ideas, and this is exactly what happened to our designer, Bonnie Christine!

Valori Wells’ new collection is used in Jenny’s latest tutorial, the Roadmap Quilt. This collection is perfect for the spring/summer seasons and just absolutely beautiful. With so many stunning collections under her belt, we got curious about the inspiration behind Valori’s lastest designs.

Here’s what she had to say about getting her start in fabric design and working her way to her latest collection, Murmur.

Murmur by Valorie Wells

“Murmur is my 41st collection of fabric, I have been designing for twenty-one years. My first collection released in 1998 and the fabric was inspired by my black and white photography ...

Sharon Holland's Latest Collection - Everlasting! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

 

Ever

"The story behind my new collection is definitely a love story inspired by my daughter,  Anna. She reminds me, in so many ways, of all the joys of summer. A large part of this collection celebrates her June wedding, so you'll discover several of the fabrics aptly reference marriage, but you'll also find some special memories from my childhood woven in as well. For example, the print called 'Summer’s Dream' plays tribute to my favorite bird—the swallow. I have sweet memories of watching the swallows follow and swoop around my father as he mowed the lawn ...

F

We love a fabric collection that tells a story. When you cut and sew with a collection of prints from a specific designer or whether you curate your own group of fabrics to make your new quilting project we love it when the fabrics provoke a feeling and take us to our happy place. 

If you're a fan of our designer Maureen Cracknell and her whimsical prints, well she's done it again and created another collection filled with gorgeous, mystical designs! Featuring unicorns, moons, shooting stars, hummingbirds, and celestial blooms, MYSTICAL LAND transports you to a magical forest ...

Dana Willard's "Summer Side" Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers!

With our latest collection and lookbook, all of us here at AGF have been using "summertime" as our main source of inspiration these days. When it comes to this season, I definitely think about hanging out at the beach and celebrating my birthday on the Fourth of July with tons of fireworks, but more than anything, I think about a certain kind of fruit that arrives only during summer. Living in Florida, one of the best things that happens during this time is mango season! You'll find hundreds of mango trees here with tons of ripe fruit ...

A Squared Approach: Grid Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

I remember walking into my "Sacred Geometry" class in art school and being so confused by everything our teacher was explaining for the first, few weeks. The class involved a lot of math and applying it to creating art, and well, math and I aren't the best of friends, haha! It wasn't until a few weeks when he started breaking down how artists during the Renaissance period used a special grid to create their paintings that I suddenly become super intrigued and wanted to know more and more! The special grid was called "The Golden Ratio" or also ...

A Nod to The East: Silkroad Fusion Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers!

If you have been following AGF for a while, you would know that we don't often focus on contrasting colors of black, red, and white in our collections. Well, we decided to do things a little different this time and this time, and bring them to center stage in our latest collection!

A Tribute: Legendary Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Often when you have a creative goal in mind, you just have to begin and start somewhere. Eventually, you'll learn along the way and get better at whatever it is that you're setting out to do! There's often no mentors to ask beforehand, no check list, no guidelines...just you and that gut feeling. However, with patience, persistence, and of course practice, you can achieve anything really! I'm sure all of us can relate to this because we've all started off somewhere. Just think back to how far you've come, and take a moment ...

Striking a New Chord: Sonata Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Thomas-kinto-1086141-unsplash

At the age of five, I began learning classical piano. Every week, I'd have a piano lesson with my piano teacher and learned to play songs from all "the greats" like Mozart, Bach, Chopin....but my absolute favorite composer's songs to play was "Ludwig van Beethoven." His songs were moody and felt like they just had soul (no offense to the other talented composers), I just connected to his music the most, and his "Moonlight Sonata" became my favorite song to play on the piano..still is today! One of the main reasons I love it so much ...

Falling for Fall: Autumn Vibes Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Happy Fall, Ya'll!

Hope you're as excited as I am with this new season that's finally here!

Hands down, fall is my favorite time of year, even though we're here in Florida where we don't really have seasons..minus hurricane season! I still like to pretend the leaves change color and force myself to wear "cozy layers" despite the humidity. There's something so festive about this time of year that's super exciting! It's that time when you get to gather with your family and friends, eat a ton of pumpkin-flavored foods, continue ...
