As someone who has been behind the scenes here at AGF, I've had the honor and privilege of looking at collections come to life! Today I'm excited to finally see Sharon Holland’s first kids collection, Lilliput, live and in action. Now for me, this kids collection is the most unique I have ever seen, as Sharon really outdid herself by balancing adorable forest creatures, sweet florals, and tying them together with boho elements.
Lilliput is inspired by observing the natural world through a child’s imagination. Encounter sweet foxes and bunnies in forest shades of fern green, budding pink, spring violet, and earthy clay.
This collection is so perfectly balanced with blenders, medium-sized prints, and large-scale designs that are ideal to piece together in your patchwork projects! Since there are a lot of eclectic elements in this collection, there are so many prints that are ideal for adults too, like “Secret Garden” and “Liliputian.”
What I love most about the substrate prints is that they're so versatile, they could be transformed into apparel for kids and grownups! If you check out the lookbook below, you're going to find a stunning dress made by Alexis Wright, and the more playful knit “Berry Picking Dim” subtle purple and navy background makes it ideal for any little girl and boy!
If you’re looking to accentuate these soft colors, check out these matching AGF Elements:

There are plenty of opportunities to create magical quilts like our “treasure hunt” free quilt pattern that will let your little ones go on an adventure, where they will meet the sweetest forest critters and nature’s blossoms!
Flip through the pages of our Lilliput Fabric lookbook to discover playful quilt blocks, adorable fox plushies, quilts, and more that you can recreate. With the help of a few talented makers and even Sharon herself, we have put together tons of quilty projects that will get you excited to sew for your kids!
Don’t forget to check our “Let's Talk Fabric” YouTube segment, where you'll get to see the natural world through a child's imagination and unfold the magical story within every print as if the fabrics were right in your hands. Be inspired to create all sorts of patchwork projects with all the sewing patterns featured in this video, matching AGF Elements, and some sweet up-close shots of the knit and substrates available.
If you love to quilt for the little ones in your life, this collection is for you! I can already see all the cute outfits, baby quilts, and nursery decor with these fabrics. If you get your hands on these fabrics and create something, please share it with us on social media using the hashtag #AGFLilliput, I would love to see it (and Sharon would too!)
Until next time,
