BIG News : :

If you follow Art Gallery Fabrics, Katy Jones, and myself on Instagram or Facebook then you already know my good news!! To those of you who might only stop by this blog each day to see what I'm making, I am thrilled to share with you all today that I am now one of Art Gallery Fabrics newest AGF Limited Edition Designers!!

SO many of you have already guessed and FINALLY today I can share this most exciting news!!! I'm so thrilled and honored to have been asked to join the Art Gallery Fabrics family as a AGF Limited Edition Designer!!

I am so incredibly honored to be joining the AGF family, alongside Katy Jones of I'm a Ginger Monkey and the lovely team of creative people that both design and work for Art Gallery Fabrics!

Did you know it was me when AGF was sharing little hints leading up to yesterday's reveal? They were extremely generous!

1). You are constantly in awe with the number of quilts she makes.
2). Her photos are almost as beautiful as those quilts.

And then this colorway graphic...

Bohemian Heart -- colorway hint!

AGF plans to share a preview of my collection as soon as tomorrow, with a full reveal coming next Monday, August 11th, so be sure to follow along to see!

For so many months I had to keep this exciting news to myself, and after how tough this year has been, it feels so wonderful to finally have this great news to share with all of you who have been so kind and encouraging!

I thank you for your support....and cannot wait to see what you all stitch up with my fabrics!
