Quilterpreneurs at AGF & Sampler Quilt Blocks

Good times are always better when they’re shared, and we have sew much to share with you all today! And as an added bonus we have 12 marvelous quilt blocks to share, designed by the very gifted Quilterpreneurs!

Who are the Quilterpreneurs?  They are 12 talented designers and creatives led by their inspiring leader Elizabeth Chappell of Quilter’s Candy. Elizabeth is an author, a fabric designer for AGF, a quilt pattern designer, as well as the host of the popular podcast Craft to Career. When Elizabeth saw the enormous talent and enthusiasm in the students from her Quilt Pattern Writing Course she wanted to create an opportunity for them to gather together. And what better place than here at our home, Art Gallery Fabrics, in beautiful sunny Florida! She decided to gather these artistic and enthusiastic students together to make connections, share ideas and “discover the magic” of their favorite fabric company at our headquarters.

We had an amazing visit with these accomplished designers and enjoyed spending time with these extremely talented makers. It was a true collaboration where they learned about everything AGF and we got a glimpse into each of their creative businesses. The Quilterpreneurs got a tour of our offices and Warehouse space, participated in some fun Lives and Giveaways on Instagram, and got some behind the scenes tips on styling and photographing their blocks and quilts. Plus they all received a fun AGF Gift bag full of goodies! We all learned something new during this incredible visit and feel like they’re a part of our AGF family!

In addition, each Quilterpreneur created an exclusive block just for this event that can be combined to create a gorgeous quilt. They choose prints from Elizabeth’s soon to be released collection, Gayle Loraine, as well as beautiful coordinating blenders and fresh PURE Solids. Then it was on to cutting and sewing up their individually designed blocks in our AGF sewing studio.  It was so interesting seeing all these creative and innovative blocks come together! Each one is unique but they all coordinate to make a lovely quilt designed just for you.
