One of the fun parts of getting ready for Market is selecting the best blenders that go with your fabric line. I went through all of Art Gallery Fabrics Blenders and selected colors from all of the blenders that I thought looked the best with Cherie. I hope this chart might be useful to anyone who makes projects in the future. It was hard work to make this but worth it in the end! Now I can break down the elements for the specific projects. I am loving the color pallet as I select the wonderful AGF coordinating fabrics.
Each Cherie fabric will get a coordinate for its project. Sometimes a designer has to 'Stretch' the fabric for market because we do not get a lot from our strike offs. So it's time to get creative!
Jeni Baker of In Color Order is amazing at stretching her projects for Quilt market. She can take a quarter yard of fabric and somehow turn it into something remarkable and with not a lot of cost. She also said volume is good. Like pillows or things that fill your booth so it looks full.
I am excited about the look of this pillow and I hope the real one will be as cute : )
anyways. I still have a lot of planing to do and a lot of sewing with some help from dear friends.
It's gonna be a mad rush to the finish! I hope you come see me if you go to market and anyone who has
any cute ideas or patterns they would like to share with me. I really welcome anything!
Think about going to Paris! Much Love , Frances
