NEW COLOR MASTER ELEMENTS!

3RD POST - BUNDLES copy

Another day, another announcement of exciting news! If you’ve been a follower on the blog, you might’ve seen my series of the Color Master every month, where I feature a new color master and some patterns to go along with it. I’ve been really inspired by the boxes/bundles because they make it easier for a maker to be introduced to a new group of fabrics. Whether it’s a set of curated fabrics assorted by colors, or grouping by designer, there is a perfect little bundle ready for you to give it a try. 

Today it’s my pleasure to introduce you to our latest edition to the Color Master series... COLOR MASTER ELEMENTS!! The same concept you’ve been seeing in the past but this time, with our ELEMENTS! Curated from our popular blenders like Decostitch, Floral, Icon, Nature, Oval, Prisma, and Squared Elements, these fabrics act like solids while offering texture and depth. With 𝟭𝟭 𝙜𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙥𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢, all filled with 16 Fat Quarters, each bundle has an array of tonal colors and it’s the perfect addition to your fabric stash to use in various projects.

All bundle elements

Now with more fabrics in each bundle, the possibilities are endless! If you love to collect fabric, this would be a great addition to add to your fabric stash. Because these Elements were created with colors that are already existing in all our AGF collections, you’ll be sure to find the perfect blender for your next project.

Please share with us your bundles and creations with these fabrics by using the hashtag #AGFElements on social media, so we can share the love. 

 

Until next time,

Happy sewing!

Isn’t it just a lovely day when you get to discover more fabric?! Working at AGF, I get to see these fabrics come to life from start to finish, and it’s a really exciting day when sewists get their hands on them! 

Today, we just released Alexandra Bordallo’s second collection here are Art Gallery Fabrics, and just like her first one, this is quite a fun collection. It’s calling all travelers at heart as this collection represents her trip to the African Savanna in Kenya! Although this trip was 5 years ago, little did she know that the photographs she took during her adventure were going to be her inspiration for designing her next collection. Throughout her trip, she went on a safari by the Maasai Mara, a protected area in the African Savanna where she found lovely people at their villages, gentle elephants, and graceful zebras. 

In this fabric collection, you’ll find many of her memories translated to these prints! Filled with colorful cameras, luggage bags, and exotic blenders that pair perfectly together for your next quilty project.

The Denim Studio: Back in Stock!

This week at AGF, a lot of exciting things have been happening, with the latest releases of our Lookbook, to quilt market, and now I’m here with more news! Last week we received a large shipment restocking all of our denim!!

I am overjoyed this is back because not only is it more fabric to play with, but more options for my upcoming projects! When people hear denim, some automatically think jeans, but it’s way more than that. Imagine all the modern quilts you can make, the fun apparel you can sew with all the printed denim, and even make some sturdy home decor. 

Now, if you've never felt our denim before, I definitely need you to go to your closest fabric store and feel it for yourself. It is the softest denim you’ll ever feel because it’s made out of 100% cotton, and you’ll want to fight the urge to make everything out of this substrate. 

A little more information about our denim and the variety we have: 

Classic Denim & Prints:

Composition: 100% Cotton | Width: 58-59" | Weight: 4.5oz/sqm

10+ designs with classic denim blue background with color and designs printed on them. We included a mix of painterly and playful floral designs with geometric and texturized graphics in tonal shades to create more depth in your projects.

There is a denim blend out there for you, and if you are looking for more inspiration to make with these fabrics, check out our past Denim Lookbooks or you can check out The Denim Studio YouTube video. You’ll find tons of projects and free patterns to sew up. 

I can’t wait to see what makers will be making with these fabrics, and if you already have your hands on them, please share with us on social media by using the hashtag #artgalleryfabrics! We love to see what everyone is creating and share some love.

Until next time,
