Geometrical Delights: "Loved To Pieces" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

 Hi Makers,

Happy June and hope your month is starting off on a good note! 

It's been a busy couple of weeks here, since we settled back in from Quilt Market - Portland. It was at Market that I had the pleasure of finally meeting our AGF designer "Mister Domestic" a.k.a Mathew Boudreaux who has such so much personality and incredible talent! Oh, and if you haven't heard it in his videos or in person, he definitely has a contagious laugh as well! It was at his Quilt Market booth where I got to witness his creativity ...
