Does anyone have a specific area in their home that brings them bliss? For me, it’s my backyard where every time I need to relax or make important decisions, it’s the first place I go to.

I bring this up because when I read ...

Quilted Hat Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello, my fellow makers,

Today I want to take you on my journey of making a quilted hat. Like most of my design stories, it started with scrolling over Pinterest and Instagram.

When the soft and feminine Rosewood collection came out, I decided to look for a bucket hat tutorial and jump into the adventure. I realized that I could just use my love for improv piecing and the Dresden technique to replace the small brim of the tutorial for a big ...
