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! Inspired by what you’d discover while traveling the trading route that connected The East to The West, AGF created its latest collection, “Silkroad Fusion.” This fabric line celebrates the emerging trend of Asian influences in textiles with designs from ancient techniques of brushwork that ...

Kicking Back from Becca's Crazy Projects

I sometimes leave myself a mess do deal with the following morning.

This one was tiny. How tiny? Tiny enough to fit a Tiny Kitty Collier doll.
I picked up this doll second hand years and years ago on eBay. That was when I was a little crazy for Robert Tonner dolls. I still have many dolls hidden away in moving boxes. I suppose I should look to selling them off and putting that money into a retirement fund. Anyway, I decided to use some of the scraps from my Halloween sewing to make Kitty some fun lounge wear. It ...

Inspired by Rococo Art: Decadence Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers! 

Besides being all about fabric, are you also an "art lover?!" I'm definitely one! From an early age, my parents introduced me to many art museums near and far around the world where I had the incredible opportunity to see so many types of art. It was during this time I was introduced to the "Rococo Period." This art movement consisted of highly ornate and a extravagant style of architecture, art and music that flourished in Europe in the 18th century. I fell in-love with all of it!

As I grew older and went to art school ...

DIY Fabric Accessories from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello, makers!

    When I was growing up, I was never the one to dress up or put any jewelry. My mom always hated that I was a tomboy, haha! She would always make me feel bad for not dressing like a “lady”, especially if I walked out of the house without earrings! I guess now, that all grew on me because today I am the complete opposite. I feel weird not wearing any accessories and as you may all know from previous blog posts, I love to paint my nails too! Being such a girly-girl now, I really enjoy putting ...

Floral Hues ~ Pullover Top from Tea Rose Home


Have you already hear about Floral Hues designed by Sue Daley? She is a talented quilt and fabric designer. Also, she is well known for her amazing English paper piecing skill and knowledge. A few years ago, I had the privilege to meet her in person when she was in Utah. I will always treasure the night I spent looking at her beautiful quilts and talking with her.

I was given a chance to work with her new fabric collection, Floral Hue from Riley Blake Designs. I was so excited to find out that they are 100% cotton lawn. Lawn ...

Spring Cleaning, and a Blog Break from From My Carolina Home

Spring Cleaning came late this year, it just seemed like winter would never end.  But one of the effects of losing a bit of weight is that the closet needs to be purged, a good problem to have, isn’t it?  I went into how I do this in more detail in a previous post – What’s In Your Closet?  On the clean out day, I took about four hours to try on most of my clothes, and make a critical assessment of each one.  The bolero shrugs had to go, past their prime and out of style now.  Several ...

Quilted Fashion from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers,

Happy April and hope you are all off to a great start with all your projects, this month!

If you didn't know by now, I have an immense affinity for the fashion world. From listening to fashion designers talk about a collection’s concept to learning about how a certain movement or event in history shaped what people wore at the time, I find all of it extremely fascinating and the biggest source of my inspiration. Just like history, fashion tends to repeat and of course, reinvent itself. During the 1960’s, thanks to the influence of ...

It’s Spring (Almost) – Leave the House, Take a Workshop! from Cultured Expressions

Luckily, we’re making our way thru winter fairly well here in Rahway, so my thoughts have already turned to the approaching Spring season, and all of the opportunities we have to Create with African fabrics — Birthdays, Proms, Mother’s Day, Women’s History Month, and of course, the still-growing influence of all things “Wakanda Style”!  I’m looking forward to our second season here at the studio, and with that, we release the Spring workshop schedule ; )

In addition to our old favorites, we’ve added three new workshops…

Plus, you can enjoy three new “Drop-In Demos” (spontaneous opportunities to ...

New Year, New Attitude ~ Getting Organized from Tea Rose Home


In January many of us make new year resolutions. One of the things on my list this year is to get better organized and simplify my life. When I say "Organized", that included many things. My house all the nooks and carnies, but also my schedule too. When I think about it, it is a bit over whelming, but I decided to start small and keep working at it. This is one of the small(and CHEAP!) organization project that I started a while ago, but made such a difference for me, so I will share it with you today ...

Something for the Ladies from Romany Quilting

Looking through Transport World  museum packed full of cars and trucks was only mildly interesting to me, so I was delighted to discover other exhibits aimed at the female customers who accompany their husbands.  Such as a range of “Wearable Art” upstairs.  Here are some which took my fancy.  First was “The Phoenix” by Claire Maley-Shaw, and is made from fabric, feathers, sequins, beads, and interestingly, pipe lagging!  A little “over the top” for my taste, but certainly an eye catching outfit.

And in keeping with the transport theme, I thought these next two certainly fitted that theme ...

Pin It Weekly #227 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Although I haven't been blogging as I should, I have remembered that there was a time when I had plans. I'll revisit those later in the week. I'm curious about how I (and you) have managed the plans we made way back in the beginning of 2017.  I wonder what those were?!

Frank Malan is a follower with a board called "Fashion Illustration." At first glance it seems to be men's fashion, but there are other pins tossed in, so I'm not totally sure. However, there are some interesting men's fashion pins included.

Never Fear Lisa’s Here! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

Have I really been gone a little more than a month without posting on here? Are you kidding me? Being sick and trying to prepare for the Houston International Quilt Festival really through a curve ball into my dedication to blogging.  But I am now back!

The Houston International Quilt Festival was as always a total blast, no shocker there.  I’m sad to report that my redheaded assistant was not in attendance.  It appears she is a hot commodity and has a 9-5 job which prevents her from joining me on trips such as these.  The studio is not ...
