Explore Katarina Roccella's Exotic World of Esoterra Fabrics

Hey Makers!

Guess what?! It’s time for another lookbook release! Pack your bags and join me on an exciting adventure to a faraway land where lush foliage grows in the wild, rugged textures surround us, and best of all you get to admire extinct creatures a.k.a dinosaurs. So, are you up for the adventure? Welcome to Katarina Roccella’s exotic world of Esoterra fabrics!

Once more, Katarina has knocked the ball right out of the park with another creative collection! Who knew that dinosaurs, magenta leopard print, and exotic plants could be so stylish and cool. Another great thing about this rage of fabrics is that it’s totally gender neutral. You can make boys fun button up shirts and cargo pants while girls can have funky dresses and tops.

Besides the things you can make for kids, I also think this collection is filled with mature prints that adults can wear and incorporate in quilts. My favorite print in this collection is the “Tropicalia” print because it reminds me of the tropical foliage you see around South Florida. Can you imagine a beautiful maxi dress made with this print?!

Fussy Cut, Appliqué, Repeat- Indie Style Sewing Patterns

Hello Makers, 

Have you seen the Indie Folk fabrics lookbook yet?  Words can't explain how amazing the appliqué projects are! So I knew I had to create a blog post all about different ways you can incorporate the art of appliqué into your sewing and diy projects. I am totally  in love with the bold, rich colors in Pat Bravo's new collection Indie Folk fabrics, which I think will go perfect paired with any sewing project this time of year! Take a look below at some of the great ways to add applique to garments and home decor projects for a indie style and boho flair.

Quilt Blocks and Cute Dino's - How to Make a Endless Squares Block

Hello Quilty friends, 

 Who is ready for Thanksgiving?! I know I can't wait to go home to Minnesota and spend time with my family and eat tons of amazing home cooked food! Another thing I am looking forward to is teaching my sister how to sew up some of the blocks in the AGF Quilt Block Collection to make her very FIRST quilt! I still remember sewing up my first quilt about three and a half years ago! I have learned so much since then and am so happy my sister caught the quilting bug! One of the blocks I will be showing her to make is the Endless Squares Block featuring Esoterra Fabrics! My favorite part about this block is the dino from the " Triceratops Pink" print that  I fussy cut on point for the center of my block! SO STINKIN CUTE!  I love the vibrant, dark colors in this collection and for all you dinosaur lovers out there this collection is definitely for you! 



Enjoy the video below to make a Endless Square Block! Make sure to share your quilt block creations on social media using the hashtag #AGFQuiltBlockCollection


Happy Sewing,


AGF Mood Monday - Holidays


So what do we do when the space for decorations coincides with the space for fabric? We find the balance.

With this upcoming holiday weekend it'd be awesome to start the week knowing: which is your favourite holiday, and why?

I love Halloween because I love dressing up.

Nevertheless, there is something indescribable about the end-of-the-year holidays. There is a calm and a warmth coming from almost everyone, with that nostalgia of another year that passes and another one that comes full of opportunities to start anew. Yes, it sounds corny, but there is honesty in saying "[we] need corny in our lives" (quote from the movie The Holiday).

So with that and this photo of the beautiful mess that our homes can become during the holiday season, I wish you a happy Thanksgiving weekend and may you start your week in a great mood.
