Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! I am super excited because today is the day that I can finally tell you all about my AGF Limited Edition fabric line! This project has been in the works since late last year, and I’m so happy that I can finally tell you all about it.
My collection is called Jungle Ave., and it is inspired by city living. I live in Chicago, and even though it is a metropolitan city, I was curious to explore the softer side of the city. I thought about people living in apartments or in highrises, and how they could still keep potted plants on their balcony or have small patches of soil to plant vegetables. I combined the floral elements of these ideas with the images of asphalt and riding the subway (here in Chicago, it’s the elevated train, or ‘el’). The images of the elephants come in because I wanted to play with the idea of an ‘urban jungle’; the elephants perfectly marry the floral idea with the grittier images of the city, such as the black polka dot print or the fuchsia text print.
There are 8 prints in my line that will be available in the wonderful Art Gallery quilting cotton. In addition to that, one print will be out on a super-soft voile (which is the floral on the black background), and two prints will be available as knits (the black polka dot and the elephant).
I’m also excited to share with you the other two new lines as part of AGF Limited Edition. The first is from April Rhodes and her line is called ‘Arizona’. This is a strong line with bold graphics, and I can visualize each of these prints made into a gorgeous dress from April’s pattern line. And see that green print with the triangles? That one has metallic printing on it. So cool.
The other portion of our little group is Sew Caroline, and her line is called ‘Gleeful’. It’s an utterly charming group of prints that will be great for several projects; my personal favorite is the green scallop print. The colors are so bright and fun too, just how I like them!
This is a big day not just for the three of us, but for everyone on the Art Gallery Fabrics team. I have really enjoyed getting to know everyone that works for Art Gallery more closely, as they are an astounding group of individuals, and I think if you could see them in their office right now, they would all be jumping up and down and cheering. 🙂
So I’d love to know what you think about these 3 new lines of fabric. Which is your favorite print (and it’s certainly okay if it’s not one of mine!). What would you make with these fabrics?
