Designer Tidbits: Art Gallery Fabrics (Giveaway Closed)


Bursting florals, colorful graphic prints and bold textures make up the latest collection from the Art Gallery Fabrics In-House Designers. Floressence has us wanting to take a stroll down a garden path, lay out a picnic and get lost in the smell of flowers. The Art Gallery Designers are here to chat about Floressence, and we are giving two bundles away!


Q: What inspired this collection?
A: The inspiration for this collection was cottage gardens with an overabundance of vibrant florals. The textures are also garden inspired, incorporating fences, cobblestones and such. It's an incredibly inspired collection!


Q: What is your favorite project using this collection?
A: The "Aromatic" Free Quilt Pattern is really our love right now. This pattern is really fun and plays off the romantic florals in the collection. When placed over AG Pure Elements solids "White Linen" it just comes to life.


Q: What would be your collection’s theme song?
A: This collection speaks simple beauty to us. It is very girly and romantic and the song that we hear is Anchor by Mindy Gledhill.


Q: If you could live in a movie, what movie would it be?
A: We are all movie freaks over here, so this is a tough question. Thinking about it we think Casablanca is a perfect fit. The romance and style fits right in with Floressence.

Q: What do you get nostalgic over?
A: Classic songs & movies really get to us. Songs from Etta James, Nina Simone, Peggy Lee and old movies like Giant and The Sound of Music.


Q: What is your favorite TV show of all time?
A: Once Upon A Time is really one our favorites right now. We love the whole story line and we think the whimsy of it crept into Floressence.

Q: If you could be a modern day fictional character, who would you be?
A: A modern version of Snow White.


Q: What’s the strangest compliment you’ve ever received?
A: Someone once told one of our In-House designers that she spoke beautifully. This was the oddest and most interesting comment she have ever gotten. She thought it was odd because who really notices that but at the same time she thought it was the sweetest thing ever because who really notices that.


We giving away a bundle of Mint Floressence and a bundle of Sweet Floressence to two lucky readers! Comment below letting us know which color way you prefer to a chance to win! Update, What's For Dessert won a bundle of Mint Floressence and Kelli won a bundle of Sweet Floressence. Thanks for playing!
