2 3 Introduction In 2004, our desire to bring a chic and modern perspective to the quilting idustry is what inspired us to start Art Gallery Fabrics. Since then creativity, beauty, and design have been our passions. And to this day, they have not changed. Many describe our style as “Contemporary Elegant” and we feel that description fits. We love to design fabrics that fit today’s modern lifestyle while adding a chic, sophisticated touch. Art Gallery Fabrics makes fabrics for you. We have made a promise to always keep a consistency in quality and you can rest assured that in every yardage you order that promise is kept. When it comes to designing a collection we always keep originality and uniqueness on the top of our list. We have the pleasure of working with a talented design team who creates enticing color palettes and artful, intricate prints that make our collections one of a kind. Art Gallery designs fabrics that keep up with ongoing trends and at the same time it encourages our customers to use new colors and patterns so they venture out of their usual comfort zone. Art Gallery’s designs are printed on 100% Premium PIMA cotton that is mercerized to ensure the absolute brilliancy of all colors. They are printed on a narrow width of 44/45” and have an exceptional thread count and very fine weave. We’ve currently added a selection of Voiles that have the same premium cotton quality, printed on a width of 52/53”. This makes our premium cotton as soft and smooth you can get. You really feel the difference with just one touch! Designs that evoke style with a statement of color. A quality that sets us apart.

The collection’s name takes its origin from Nevada’s Tule desert, a place of botanical wonders, quietude, and a simplistic, but nonetheless impressive beauty. And as you’ll notice throughout the 20 new fabrics, these traits have been translated perfectly by Leah. Originally from South Carolina, Leah moved to Austin in 2008 and it was there she taught herself sewing and surface design. Her aesthetic is very much inspired by nature and the outdoors, as seen by design incorporations of plant life, animals and textures. Leah regards color as one of the most important pieces of design. Her color palette is quite distinct, and many times is derived from the surroundings of the time she spent living in Austin, Texas, as well as from her southern, and Native American roots. Her love of folk art also takes flight from her roots and nuances of this element can be spotted in many of her illustrations. To us, what is most striking about the landscape behind this collection is a lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of the desert apart. What makes it calmingly beautiful is its sense of restraint. 28 Pattern Available “Blouse with Pleated Pockets” by Burda Style 29 “Summer Tote” by AGF Free Pattern Available 31 32 Free Quilt Pattern “Solara” 33 Pattern Available “Swing Dress” by Burda Style “Sheen Shorts” by Burda Style Pattern Available 34 35 36 Pattern Available “Mixit Tank” Sewing Workshop 37 38 Download our free quilt pattern “Desert Arrows” 39 41 42 BUY TULE Inspired by Nevada’s vast landscape, Tule reflects the stark beauty of the desert with folk florals & bold colors, sharing a glimmer of the joy and peace the endlessly beautiful region consistently provides.

Keep reading for the Q and A! AGF: How was designing Legacy different from your first collection? Angela: It was so different than designing the first one! My first collection, Textures, was just like dipping my toes into the fabric design world. It was a mini-collection with only 3 different prints. However, Legacy, was like diving in head first! It’s my first full collection, which means I got to design 10 prints in two different color-ways. I absolutely loved getting to expand on my vision. AGF: Is there anything you learned from your first collection that you were able to apply to Legacy? Angela: When I designed Legacy, I felt that I was finally getting the hang of Illustrator. My practice with it while designing my first collection definitely came in handy! AGF: What do you enjoy most about being a fabric designer? Angela: I love that it’s a different side of the industry that I normally work on (as a pattern designer and machine quilter). It’s a whole different artistic outlet and I love it! Of course, seeing my name on the selvage is pretty cool too! AGF: Do you have a favorite print from the collection? Angela: My favorite print would be the Grand Mosaic. It was the very first print I designed, when I decided to try to be a fabric designer. Seeing it in production makes me so very happy! AGF: When it comes down to your quilting, do you have a time of day when you prefer to work? Angela: I find that for machine quilting, I am most productive when quiting in the middle of the night when everyone is asleep. Especially when I have some great music blaring on my ipod! When it comes to fabric design, I do most of my designs while sitting on the couch next to my hubby. AGF: We know you travel quite a bit for your quilting classes and promoting your work. Care to share which cities you enjoy frequenting? Angela: I am a total foodie, so going to cities known for great food always make me happy. My favorite cities (based solely on food) are Portland, OR and Boston MA. The quilters that I interact with are great everywhere I go! AGF: Are there other skills or hobbies you wish you had more time for? Angela: There are two things that I wish I had time to learn. I wish I could speak a different language fluently and play a musical instrument. But, I wouldn’t trade what I am doing for anything else in the world! 64 65 66 67 68 69 Free Pattern Available 70 “The Christina Clutch” by AGF “Embroidered Blouse” by Burda Style Pattern Available 71 Free Pattern Available “ Colorblock Skirt” by AGF 72 73 Download our free quilt pattern ”Roots” 74 75 77 78 BUY LEGACY!
