Happy Friday, and I hope everyone is having a creative and exciting week (or the week you imagined). Here at the AGF studio this week has been fun. We had a couple of photo-shoots and we got to explore new areas in our city (Miami for those who are wondering). We found this awesome farm (thanks to Lorena's suggestion) in the middle of a residential neighbourhood that was truly fascinating.
For a while I have had this bed-runner/table-runner/beautiful-wall-hanging-to-simply-stare-at-and-feel-joy. I designed it using fat quarters of blue and red prints from Chromatics, and complementing colours from our Pure Elements. I learned about quilting when I started working at AGF, and I must admit I learn to love it and appreciate it a little bit more everyday.
This is it hanging from the stairway to a tree-house (!!!). The best part was that the IMAGINE wooden sign was already there, with a commanding voice that was pleasant to hear. I am happy we found this place to finally share this red-white & blue creation.
Here is a closer view:
Since this project was kind of an experiment, I don't have a tutorial for it, but I will list the fabrics I used.
Fancy Buttons Blue
Love Notes Anthro
FROM PURE ELEMENTS:
The finished size is 18" x 58 1/2". Each unfinished strip was 4" and the fabrics are placed at random (I chose where they went, but it is not a sequence).
So go for it, start creating and bring your imagination into reality.
