How to Make a "Scrapbag" Block Tutorial

Hello Makers, 

Have you seen AGF's brand new fusion collections? If you haven't gotten your hands on a bundle of these collections yet let me tell you they are vibrant jaw dropping beauties! I have always been a mega fan of all of AGF Fusions but every new collection has got me drooling with excitement. For those that don't know AGF Fusion collections are bite size collections consisting of 10 prints. It includes 10 quilting cottons, two knits and one rayon for all you apparel makers out their!  Fusion collections feature prints from varies AGF designers arranged in conceptual themes! 

To introduce yourself to our brand new additions check out the Rainforest and Trinkets Fusions Lookbook, packed with an array of super fun sewing projects catered to every sewing level! ! I had to whip up a extra special block for these beautiful collections so I decided to create a "Scrapbag" Block! Mixed with solid pure element fabrics I thought this block showcased the prints  so perfectly.

Here I am (below) holding up both of my blocks. I can't stop staring at them! All I keep saying is "those colors" !!!!!  If you want to make a block of your own follow along with the video below! 


In the video I mention I want to turn my block into a decorative pillow to spruce up my boring old couch! Below is a mockup where I sewed a white strip border to my block and then placed my block on point by sewing triangles to each side of my block! 



Happy Sewing,
