The Avant Garde Blog Tour

And today I am very pleased to say that I will be closing the blog tour for the wonderful fabric line, Avant Garde by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics.

Sadly I can't show you what I'm making with these beautiful fabrics as the quilt will be going into the UK magazine Quilt Now, coming out later on in the year but if you want lots of inspiration for how to use these beautiful fabrics, just work your way through the previous stops on the blog tour which you can find listed out at the bottom of this post.  I love the whole collection but these two prints were the ones that really jumped out and grabbed me and made me want to design a quilt around them.

This print had to go on the back - I just love those great big poppies and the beautiful warm palette.

And then the quilt will be a mix of the strong, hot palette Katarina has pulled together for this line.

And mixed with these striking B+W prints.

  1. Congrats Lynne! I'll be looking for the "secret" quilt in UK NOw, hopefully can receive it in the USA.
    I love the warm Poppies too. One of my favorite flowers and it reproduces so well on Katarina's collection, any shade will do.

  2. This is a fabulous collection - love it!
