Adventure Waits with Bonnie Christine's "The Open Road"

Have you ever been on a road trip that just inspired you so much? There's something just so exciting about packing up, jumping behind the steering wheel and heading out on an unforgettable adventure. Windows down, music up...observing all the sounds, sights, smells..as you drive through quiet forests, open fields, majestic mountains, serene deserts...welcoming spontaneity and the unexpected. Trips like this often bring new perspectives and creative ideas, and this is exactly what happened to our designer, Bonnie Christine!

Bonnie recently went on an 8,000-mile road trip across the country with her family in a vintage Airstream named "Miss Marjorie"! With each state that she visited, she collected wildflowers from the roadside and also took tons of photos of wildlife and nature. Once she arrived home, she decided to use everything she had seen on her trip and turn it into her latest collection, "The Open Road"!

"The most challenging print is also my favorite…the animals print called “Walking with Bear” (and Doe). It’s one of the most detailed and intricate prints I’ve ever created and although it was challenging, I loved every minute of it. These are all animals we had sightings of during our travels, and I love how it represents the wildlife of our beautiful country."

The Open Road is a sweet collection for children as well as those young at heart. With these 16 prints that are filled with wildflowers and cute animals, there’s plenty of options for you to create nature-inspired quilts, throw pillows, travel accessories, and romantic boho garments!

This collection also comes in two colorways! Bonnie created both of these groups of colors by pulling inspiration found in photographs she took during her trip. The "Under The Sun" colorway has earthy tones of blush pink, sienna and sage. The "Under The Trees" colorway has sunny hues with pops of navy and kelly green.

NEW YouTube Series - AGF Fabric Haul Videos

 

Are you a fabric fanatic? Can you remember the first time you were introduced to the magic of fabric and creating something out of it? How did you feel?

I don’t know about you but I don’t think I could be without fabric or give up the process of making something out of this precious material. Creating with fabric for me is just as important as food, fresh water, and shelter. It has become a basic necessity in my life and I know many of you feel the same way.  Which is why I am so excited to introduce AGF Fabric Haul Videos to our YOUTUBE channel!

If you have missed out on my very first Fabric Hauls here are three videos to check out!

We love a fabric collection that tells a story. When you cut and sew with a collection of prints from a specific designer or whether you curate your own group of fabrics to make your new quilting project we love it when the fabrics provoke a feeling and take us to our happy place. 

If you're a fan of our designer Maureen Cracknell and her whimsical prints, well she's done it again and created another collection filled with gorgeous, mystical designs! Featuring unicorns, moons, shooting stars, hummingbirds, and celestial blooms, MYSTICAL LAND transports you to a magical forest that comes to life under the moonlit sky.

Dana Willard's "Summer Side" Collection

Hi Makers!

With our latest collection and lookbook, all of us here at AGF have been using "summertime" as our main source of inspiration these days. When it comes to this season, I definitely think about hanging out at the beach and celebrating my birthday on the Fourth of July with tons of fireworks, but more than anything, I think about a certain kind of fruit that arrives only during summer. Living in Florida, one of the best things that happens during this time is mango season! You'll find hundreds of mango trees here with tons of ripe fruit, ready to be picked and eaten. Growing up, my backyard had several mango trees, and I used to help my parents pick the ripe ones from the trees, which we used in smoothies, popsicles, cakes or would just enjoy eating by themselves! 

Our designer Dana Willard always comes up with a bright, cheery collection usually relating to summer. Gathering up inspiration from all the things that she absolutely loves about the season...from bold florals, refreshing popsicles and fruit to sunglasses and swimsuits with a retro twist..you'll find all these cute prints in the latest collection, SUMMER SIDE!
