Monday is all about Fabric – #56 – Nest + Blenders from AGF

Let me just squeal for a minute here……… (insert squealing and hand clapping!)

I am so excited to get these!  That’s an understatement if I ever said one.

But wait, first things first.  Go make your tea (or coffee), get comfortable, and cover yourself with a quilt.  Ready?  Let’s gush!

Today we are talking about the Nest fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics, plus a few of their blenders.

Sometime during May and June, I’ll be participating in a blog hop for the Modern Sewcialites.  Art Gallery Fabrics is one of the sponsors and I have to make a quilt for the hop.  They wanted us to choose one of their Capsule collections and then choose a few blenders to mix if we wanted.  Lemme show you what the options were and you can tell me how I did with my choices.

So I chose a few of the “Nest” collection and then added in some blenders for color (Nest is all black and white with a bit of gray).

Here’s what you see in the fabric above that I chose:

I’m tasked with making this block (in a much bigger size) and much more of them for a throw quilt  They make a great secondary design when the blocks are repeated.  BUT I’m going to slide these panels in place of a couple of the blocks.

My questions to you is:  Do I want to embroider over that adorable bear and sheep and make it even cooler?  Maybe even put a few flowers on the bears hat?

Imagine me doing lots of giggling here.

Not sure if time is going to be an issue, so we’ll see.  More on this soon.
