When Art Gallery Fabrics contacted me about collaborating on an upcoming look book for their new solids, I said yes as fast as I could! Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Solids are super fun to work with and their 20 new colors were just too pretty to resist!

I chose to make a baby-sized Zesty quilt using 8 of their new colors: Crystalline, Maldives, Heart of the Ocean, Gentle Feather, Vanilla Custard, Raw Gold, Candied Cherry, and Miami Sunset. (Psst! Raw Gold is my new favorite color!)

I used White Linen for the background to give it a soft, creamy look, and bound it in Candied Cherry.

I was supposed to use Blossomed for the backing, but when I was pressing it prior to basting, my iron spit rusty water all over a 12″ section! Luckily, I had scraps leftover from the front and turned them into a fun, scrappy backing using Blossomed, Heart of the Ocean, and Gentle Feather. Still, piecing together a baby sized backing definitely made me grumble.

I was pleased to see that Art Gallery Fabrics has started printing the name of their solids in the selvage. This is so HUGE since I often forget to label them and find myself staring at two navy fabrics at 8pm wondering if they’re the same or not.
