    Goodness! Doesn’t it just seem like there is always so much beautiful fabric available and we just can’t create quickly enough to use it all? I have been feeling that way lately (maybe that’s why I have suddenly started making small quilts). The new fabric collection, Wonderful Things, designed by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics, […]

    Have you seen the new Garden Dreamer fabrics by Maureen Cracknell (Art Gallery Fabrics)? I am loving the jewel tone colors and basic prints in this one. Just plain beautiful. The collection is pretty well rounded with a set of darker prints in fuchsia, teal and indigo, plus a bit of mustard. Then there is […]

    A brand new collection has landed from Art Gallery Fabrics! Here Comes the Fun, designed by Caroline Hulse (@sewcaroline) is pretty much irresistible to a color lover like me. These are my kind of fabrics: basic prints, a few with text, lots of clear colors and geometric designs. The scale of the prints is ideal […]

    When I saw the Lagom fabric collection at Spring Quilt Market in May, I instantly loved the minimal prints and colors! Lagom is a Swedish word meaning, “just the right amount”. That pretty much sums up the perfect fabrics! Lagom is the latest collection from the designers at Art Gallery Fabrics…a perfect combination of black […]

    Some fabrics just grab you. I subscribe to the Uppercase magazine, so I saw early last spring that Janine Vangool had designed a fabric collection for Windham. This news made me very excited! The colors and prints are so fresh and basic, I knew from the pictures that I would want this collection. It does […]

    Pat Bravo (Art Gallery Fabrics) has a new basics fabric collection out, and it is perfection! As you may know, basics are my favorite to work with: prints with simple patterns, tone on tone, and small scales. Add to that Pat’s color sense, and Essentials has my name all over it! The collection consists of […]

    For the Love of Fabric: Paperie

    In my humble opinion, the new fabric collection, Paperie, by designer Amy Sinibaldi for Art Gallery Fabrics, is pretty much pure perfection. The soft colors and sweet prints make these a must have for any project you want to be ultra feminine, light and spring-y. Above I have them mixed with some linens, cream and […]

    One of my all time favorite quilting fabric collections is “For You” by designer Brigitte Heitland (Zen Chic) for Moda. These fabrics came out last summer, and I was lucky enough to get a layer cake (10″ square precuts) of them right away, which I made a quilt with…I can’t wait to show you that […]

    I haven’t done a lot of fabric shopping lately, but I had to take advantage of some black Friday sales to get some favorites I have been eyeing. The Imprint collection by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery fabrics is one that is so me! I am always drawn most to the basics in designer collections: […]
