A Modern Kids' Collection: SISU!

Happy Friday, Makers - 

Hope you all had a fabulous week!

We were super busy here at AGF Studio, putting the final touches on our latest lookbook for our latest collection, SISU! This bold, bright collection is so so soooo cute and was made just for kids and their imagination. While designing this collection, we collected a lot of inspiration from our own childhood with primary shapes, colors, and memories! We love putting our own little personal stories into our designs, and this time around, one of the prints that feature a little dog flying on a glider is based on one of our Design team's real dogs named "Cinnamon!" See if you can find him! :)


Sisu Fabrics 4

These youthful, hand-drawn designs were inspired by children's playtime fused with all the fun and discovery that comes along with learning. In case you were curious, the word “Sisu” comes from a Finnish word that translates into strength, determination, and perseverance, and we felt it really resonated a positive vibe with a line for kids. This collection offers 20 prints with two different colorways from cherry reds, sunny yellows, vibrant greens and cobalt blues to calming purples, citrusy orange, and tranquil teals. In addition to our 20 cotton prints, we have 3 knit prints available as well since we know little ones want to feel comfortable as they explore.

Kids Fabric- How to Make a "King David's Patchwork Tutorial - AGF Quilt Block Collection


Hello Makers, 

I don’t know about you but when I am looking for fabrics to sew for the little ones in my life I always have a tough time finding the right fabrics. I either find prints that are to gender-specific or the colors are just not quite what I am looking for.

Becoming an Auntie for the first time 14 years ago and then becoming a God Mother 2 ½” years ago has been such a rewarding honor. As I watch my brother's kids grow up I think back to when I was that young and I make sure to teach them everything I learned and more, so they can grow up to be confident, full of passion and motivated to make their dreams come true. When I first saw the final prints that were going to be included in our AGF Studio fabric collection called Sisu I was super impressed with this colorful, impactful and playful group of fabrics for kids. The word “Sisu”, is an untranslatable Finnish word; it is the mindset that allows us to keep going just when we think we are about to give up. As adults, we have encountered this moment many times but as a child, you are experiencing things for the first time so this mindset is important for them to learn at a young age. All the prints in this collection translate this essential message with prints of children exploring and playing, motivational phrases, and primary shapes and colors to inspire them to their fullest potential.

For this collection, I decided to sew up the “King David’s Crown” block. I took advantage of this block’s fussy cutting capabilities and fussy cut a section of my favorite print in the collection. In this block, you will learn to make HST’s using the eight at a time method and how to create an hourglass block. Join me by watching the video below.


Make sure to check out all the prints in the collection here and let me know what your favorite print is in the comments!


Happy Sewing,



The Lone Star

Hello my Dear Makers,

Don't you love to mix traditional quilting techniques with fun prints? Today we will be learning step by step how to make a Lone Star mini-quilt using the mystical fabrics of the Lugu collection.

If you love the Lone Star like me and would like to challenge yourself in a bigger project, I invite you to take a look at the Stardust quilt, or check out the Buho quilt for a twist on the technique.

The fabrics featured are Efflorescent Opulent (Fabric A), Sova Nightlight (Fabric B), Odyssey Dewdrop (Fabric C), Tumeric (Fabric D), Tile Blue (Fabric E), Endless Paradise (Fabric F).



You will need two (2) WOF x 2 1/2" strips from fabrics A and B, one (1) WOF x 2 1/2" strip from fabrics C and E, three (3) WOF x 2 1/2" strips from fabric D, and eight (8) 9 5/8" x 9 5/8" squares from fabric F. *WOF (Width of Fabric)

Join the strips into strip sets: strip set 1 (D - E - A),  strip set 2 (A - B - D), and strip set 3 (B - D - C).

Cut all the squares from fabric F in half diagonally into half square triangles.


Sub-cut each strip set into 2 1/2" strips on a 45 degree angle, using the 45 degree guide from your quilting ruler. You should get eight (8) from each strip set.

To start creating your block arrange the resulting strips in order. 


Take the half square triangles from fabric F and align them to the strips following the image, then join the pieces.

Each block is 1/8 of the Lone Star.


Once you have your eight (8) blocks ready, pair them and join them to get (4) quarters. Then pair the quarters to get two (2) halves.

I love this technique to piece concentric projects because it guarantees a flat center.


Join the halves and trim the excess from fabric F to square your mini-quilt. The final size is 29" x 29", ideal for a wall-art, or like my little nephew suggested, a nap time blankie ;).


Now the final touch ... the quilting!! How would you quilt a Lone Star? Would you do something simple like horizontal lines, or maybe follow the lines of the star..would you do it by hand?

Let me know, I would love to hear your thoughts.

Happy Lone Star making!
