I’d not heard of the fabric collections by Art Gallery Fabrics before, but I do love what I see! According to their web site, they are “very well known for the exceptional premium quality cotton and a modern, fresh, and contemporary approach to designs.” And if you take a peek at their fabrics, you’ll understand why. It’s wonderful to find that they offer free quilt patterns to go with their gorgeous line of fabric! Many of these patterns can be used for scrap quilts, but you may just want to toss the budget out the window when you see the Art Gallery Fabric lines… Sssshhh.. I didn’t say that!
That’s all for today!
