Sewing with AGF Canvas! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Let's talk AGF canvas! Okay first off, have you ever sewn with our canvas?! 

I remember the first time I touched our canvas, I was instantly surprised by the softness and lightness of it. It didn't feel like your typical rough and heavy material that often comes to mind when you think of this substrate! 

Canvas_FINAL

Our canvas fabric comes in a wide selection of colors and designs, and is ideal for upholstery, home decor, garments and much more! Did you know AGF canvas fabric is sturdy enough for structured projects yet soft enough for apparel?! From classic florals ...

Murphy’s Law of Fabric from Quilt Paint Create

It’s not much, but it’s something.
The main section of the 30s top is together.
30s centerNext comes a narrow border of the background fabric, which is already cut. You can see the mock-up in the upper right hand corner.
After that comes a wider border. I’ve auditioned at least 15 fabrics. Nothing looked right. All that fabric and not a 30s reproduction print in sight. I hate it when that happens.
We have more family fun this weekend, and I won’t be able to go to the quilt shop until sometime next week. Good thing I ...

I Stopped at the Thrift Shop Again from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

Remember that thrift shop that had  the jelly rolls and the charm packs? I had to drive out that way again on Wednesday and look what they'd added to the sale basket....


I was only going to buy a few of these, but they were three for a dollar and fabric was half price and I took that as a sign that I needed to restock on novelty prints for baby quilts.  I didn't buy it all, but at six for a dollar I bought everything I reasonably thought I could use.

The blue floral print in the ...

Jessica Swift's Collection: LUGU from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers,

I'm super excited to share with you our designer Jessica Swift's latest collection, LUGU!

LuguLogo

If you're not familiar with her designs, she often features lots of playful, folkloric and whimsy designs mixed with strong storytelling. Her collections definitely evoke a sense of nostalgia and childhood wonder that make them perfect for kids or adults that are young at heart! I especially love this collection because of the cute, little owls in it with their big eyes! They're one of my favorite birds and I love that they also represent "wisdom." :)

This time around with ...

Too Many Choices from Quilt Paint Create

A new quilt project will begin in April, and I’ve been searching the stash for the perfect fabric. There are so many choices, I don’t know what to pick.
I considered and eliminated the Fig Tree polished cottons because I didn’t have enough.
I pulled out my cat fabrics, Japanese fabrics and a coordinating fabrics I bought at a guild sale. I probably have enough cat fabric for three quilts.
collectionsI also pulled out my bin of 1930s reproduction fabrics.
1930s printsSome of the pieces are small, but I think there’s enough larger pieces to get by ...

I Am Enough Quilt Along Top Finish from A Ditchin' Time Quilts


Finally finished this quilt top!  I have loved making all the squares. I am using all my mom's old fabric from her stash that I inherited when she passed away.  Every time I look at this quilt it reminds me of her.  It reminds me of all the things she made of these fabrics.  It gives me such happiness to see this come together.  

Check out Havel's Sewing Blog for their wonderful sewing tools and batting! There you can find this pattern, designed by Melanie from Southern Charm Quilts. Just such fun! Details here!

Fabric Pandemonium from Life in the Scrapatch



Pink Pandemonium
I asked my hubby for a word to caption this photo using the word color,
and he said "Pink Pandemonium."
Good choice,
so I am using a variation of it in my post title, too.

I did point out to him that there are a lot more colors than pink here.
The blues on the top are my background fabrics,
intended to cool down the palette.

These fabrics are my stash pull for the

A Creative Homage: Art District Fusion from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Have you ever spent a day exploring an artsy neighborhood?! You’d probably start your day, grabbing a cup of coffee at a cute cafe, wander in and out of art galleries, browse small shops that are filled with unique, artisanal crafts, and of course, spend some time photographing all the amazing murals you’d unexpectedly find in alleyways. In Florida, if you're looking to see some street art or explore some unique shops, galleries, plant stores and delicious cafes, our biggest art district here is "Wynwood" which is a fun place to head to!

a few (mostly fabric) additions from Charm About You

City Nights by Lewis and Irene quilting fabric

One of the things I love about visiting a quilt shop is getting to see fabric collections you've seen online, in real life. I was teaching at Patchfinders the other day and, after ogling City Nights by Lewis and Irene on my laptop, some had to come home with me! It has lovely touches of metallic, just enough sparkle without being too much. I fell for, from left to right: Architectural Blender in copper on light and City Buildings in copper and copper on multi. The copper glistens so beautifully and the colours are totally my style.

While I ...
