The Love Story LookBook Is Out!

The LookBook for my brand new collection with Art Gallery Fabrics, Love Story, was just released and I hope you'll enjoy taking a look! Inside you'll find each print of this colorful new collection on display in the form of dozens of inspirational projects from creative bags, to beautiful garments and lots of quilty projects! Today I want to start by showcasing some of the amazing quilts and pillows featured in the LookBook to get you inspired for Love Story quilting!

Love Story LookBook is out!

Two of my favorite projects from the Lookbook both include AGF's Solid Smooth Denim in Afternoon Sale -- a cornflower shade that goes perfectly with the blues of Love Story. This Half Hearted Quilt is made by Paola Baker using Amy Sinibaldi's free pattern and is so perfect for the Love Story collection! The matching pillow was made by me, inspired by my Flower Stamp floral print. I enlarged a simple sketch of the flower and leaves shapes and used raw edge applique, a wide satin stitch and Aurifil thread to finish the applique design!

The AGF Studio stitched up several Love Story quilt blocks and filmed a wonderful video tutorial for their Union Square Quilt Block as part of their AGF Quilt Block Collection for the AGF YouTube channel!

In the Block Corner of the Love Story LookBook AGF Studio also share a how-to for this Amity quilt block!

In the Lookbook you'll also find plenty of pillow inspiration, you all know how much I love making pillows! I made these three using the Quick Quilt As You Go technique that I share in my Craftsy class, using cotton batting as my foundation to create simple, qayg pillows so fast!

My free Love Story PDF quilt pattern is called X's & O's and was designed just for this new collection! To me, this pattern couldn't be more perfect for this LOVE themed collection! You can download the pattern for yourself right, HERE!
