Contemporary, Elegant Art Gallery Fabrics, By the Yard and Precuts
A strong desire to bring a chic and modern perspective to quilt fabric was the impetus of Pat Bravo and her husband, Walter, to start Art Gallery Fabrics. And ever since their beginnings in 2004, they have lived up to this ideal.
Contemporary elegance is typically used to describe their collections. Suitable for quilters who embrace a modern esthetic, these fabrics add a touch of chic sophistication to your quilts.
Art Gallery is mindful of current trends. This is reflected in collections that push the limits on colors and patterns, perhaps even taking a quilter out of her/his quilting comfort level. And we all know we grow when we tread into these areas.
While you can't tell from the pictures of the collections below, Art Gallery prints their fabrics on 100% premium mercerized cotton with a 205 thread cotton.
Your fingers will tingle with excitement as they caress these luscious fabrics.
Notice the collections tend to have fewer prints in fewer colorways. However, the grouping itself tends to be more diverse and novel than for other manufacturers.
For instance, you won't see one design in 5 different colorways in a particular collection—only once or twice at most.
These are genuinely eclectic fabrics. An absolute delight to work with.

Art Gallery Fabrics complimentary downloads
I just love Art Gallery.
Besides the absolute lusciousness of their fabrics, they do a bang-up job supplying patterns to showcase their lines for you to download for free.
I've corresponded with Art Gallery to confirm that as they are made aware of changes/corrections to these patterns, they make those changes/corrections right in the directions. You don't need to go looking for any 'corrections' page on their website.
Best practices means to download the pattern right before you make it. That gives you the most up-to-date version.
My advice to you is to write the date right on the download so that you have that information if you have to leave a project and come back to it later much later.

The fabrics are arranged in alphabetical order for your convenience.
Be sure to bookmark this page to keep up with the latest arrivals. I add fabrics as they arrive at my affiliates.

Fat Quarter Shop does a nice job of bringing together coordinating fabrics from the basic Art Gallery collections. Look for those, too.
Now it's time to kick back and enjoy some fabric drooling and maybe some shopping...if you can't resist. ;)

Fat Quarter Shop offers fat quarter bundles of the 'fierce' or 'tenacious' prints below. Art Gallery Fabrics has created a free pattern called 'Garden of Eden'. Click the images below to view those choices.
Just a quick note...
My girlfriend made the 'Garden of Eden' pattern above and had a dickens of a time getting those seams to match. When we started going through it patch by patch, it turns out she sewed with a bit too much gusto as she was piecing her strip sets.
Sew...as you create yours, check your seam allowance periodically. Adjust as needed before a need arises to rip things out. It's a much more pleasant sewing experience!
PS In the end her extra word was DEFINITELY worth it! :)
