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 ...

FLOURISH QAL: Fabrics from Nestlings By Robin

 The first exciting step in starting a new
project....FABRICS!! 
YAY! YIPPEE! YAHOO!

I had a lovely floral print, 
"First Impressions" designed by
Mary Anne Henderson 
from Red Hen Fabrics 
for Northcott 
that started it for me.
The color is true in the pic above.
I used the colors in the print
to pull my applique' and other
piecing fabrics.

 I placed a ruler over the 
fabric so you can get 
an idea of the print scale.
This print worked perfectly 
with the size of the templates.
You want a small to medium
print so that the fun details show ...

Bramble Blooms from Nestlings By Robin

 The May issue of AQ Magazine is out and you will 
find my Bramble Blooms within its fine pages.

Let's talk fabrics:)

My fabric supplier was very
generous with this HARLOW 
collection from Northcott.
There is some truth to having too many decisions:)

Sometimes you need to try a new
technique, quilt style, or in this
case, a new block.

I have an affinity for pinwheel
blocks and tried something new 
this time by splitting one square of 
a half-square triangle set up 
before stitching together.  
It gives some fun extra movement.

Then you chain piece
every step of ...

Holly Jolly Christmas from From the Strawberry Patch...

You might remember those "Stitch Pink" blocks that were published daily by Moda back in October. I downloaded them all and stitched them up in Christmas fabrics instead, this wall quilt contains twenty five of them. The remaining five are destined to appear in a future table runner. After Christmas I got this loaded onto Snowbird and quilted it with a wonderful new (to me) pantograph by Urban

New Quilt Project from Quilting Stories

Fabrics leftovers

Panettone

It has been a long time since I started a new quilting project. Missing quilting...
After reorganizing my closet I found various leftovers, among which those solid colors, and I wonder wether they could match or not in a new quilt. I am thinking of a simple and quickly sewn quilt like a nine patch or a four patch.

I love the four patch quilts but I always found the most difficult to match the colors, and was often disappointed with the result. Sometimes the most simple things are the most difficult to succeed in.

As regards my fabric shelves ...

I'm back! from Grandma's Red Needle

Hello everyone! 
I'm back!  
You may wonder where on earth I've been?! A couple of days after my previous blog post (April 1, 2020), the I-net connection went down and later on the computer (windows-7) crashed! Very 'good' timing during the lock-down! NOT! To make a long story short; our dear friend and tech-guru got the computer up running again, now on Windows-10 and most files from W-7 are saved! For the I-net connection, we had to give up the ISP we have had for some years (worst customer service ever!) and hook up to another one. We ...

A new bad finish from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


A few days ago I mentioned that I'd started a new quilt top. Frustrated with one thing, I decided to try working on something new. It doesn't work that way apparently. At least not for me. If I could have the time back that I've spent anguishing over these two quilts, I'd be able to make one king. Ah well, c'est la vie.


At this point I have abandoned the front of the quilt. I don't like it. I've tried several things. I don't like any of them and am moving on ...

A new bad start from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

That worrisome thing on the design wall just doesn't appeal to me right now. It's been three weeks since I last looked at it. I'm suffering with a touch of CoVid19. It's not bad, considering people are dying. Nonetheless, I do feel yucky. I've managed to get out of bed. Some days barely. 



Today I'm trying to convince myself that I can do more, so I've dressed, sat outside to breathe in fresh air, and took a look at what was happening in the studio before this wretched virus turned me into a ...
