Art Gallery Fabrics: New Designers

{ Bari J.’s Lillybelle, Cool Sunrise colorway }

When it was announced that Bari J. would be Art Gallery Fabrics’ first licensed designer, I knew that signaled a huge sea change for the company. I didn’t realize that the shift would be happening so quickly, though, did you? Of course Art Gallery is anything but timid so their recent announcement of two more new designers shouldn’t come as a surprise.


Jeni Baker of the wonderful modern quilting blog In Color Order is making her fabric debut with Color Me Retro, a mini collection that will be available in Feb. 2013.


Sarah Watson is an American designer/illustrator who is currently living in Brazil. Luxe in Bloom is her first fabric collection too, and it will be out in December 2012.

I thoroughly enjoyed Art Gallery’s introductory videos — see Sarah’s here and Jeni’s here — they’ll get you even more excited for these lines.

9/4/12: Angela Walters just announced she’ll have a collection with AGF too!
