Hello, it’s Pat Bravo and I at Quilt Market, just hanging in her booth, pretending to drink tea and not pretending to eat fun-size chocolate bars. We’ve already gotten a glimpse at two thirds of Art Gallery Fabrics’ Fall 2010 collections here, and voilÃ , here is the third collection, Dreaming in French. I just love that name — far better than the title “Avant” I mistakenly attached to it before!
These photos did not turn out well — sorry! You can get a better view of the prints on the Art Gallery Fabrics website. Loving those colors, the Art Nouveau, those florals!
These blender collections, Oval Elements and Nature Elements, coordinate with all the Art Gallery Fabrics collections.
And below, some inspirational projects using Paradise, which will be in shops this August. The Sunrise palette was on the left, and the Sunset palette was on the right (of course!).
Gorgeous appliquÃ© work!
Ooh … hello pretty dress! No pattern for you yet, but maybe someday? The little girls’ dresses, by the way, DO have patterns — they are by Olabelhe.
Pat’s attention to detail in her projects (and everything related to Art Gallery Fabrics – her website, the promotional materials, the patterns and kits) impresses me to no end.
Below is the Paris Bag, which can be had as a standalone pattern or a full kit. And by full I mean everything — the notions, the hardware, the fabric.
Looking forward to this Fall, for sure! Which is your favorite — Paradise? Modern Affair? Dreaming in French? Be sure to see Pat’s own Quilt Market posts (I, II) for plenty more inspirational photos and information.
