Beginner's Journey: First time Binding
Designer’s Palette of the Month: Sharon Holland


Christmas in July? Yes, please! Who else is crazy about the winter season? I have to tell ya I am definitely not a fan of the cold and the weather can be quite miserable at times but there is something that always fascinates me about this time of year. I love the music, getting together with family and friends and all the traditions that come along with the season.

I also enjoy making handmade gifts, holiday ornaments and festive decor to decorate my home. Which is why I have never been more excited to talk about AGF’s new Collective Collection called Merry and Bright!



Since our prints are so versatile and can often be grouped together to create a certain mood or theme for sewing projects, we decided to start creating new groups called “Collective!” For this first group, we were really inspired by winter and cozy feels, so we curated whimsy prints from various collections and designers.

I love the winter whites, greens, reds and blues! I chose the perfect block to make with this collection called the “Christmas Star” block! Who likes jumbo blocks! This block measures out to be 16” squared and can be perfect to turn into a holiday pillow or an easy to put together quilt top.


Have fun watching the video tutorial below!
