Sewing with Skopelos fabrics


Looks like I have a planπŸ™Œ #Skopelosfabrics #artgalleryfabrics  #katarinaroccella

In a few days Skopelos fabric collection will hit shelves of the quilt stores and I am trying my best to make a few quilt and garment samples out of my strike offs. Beside that, I am also trying to make 2 new PDF patterns. One will be for the "Lola drawstring bag" (on the following pictures)...

Adding the cords and ready to shoot☺️ #Loladrawstringbag #katarinaroccella #artgalleryfabrics #Skopelosfabrics #skopelosfabric

I might be overgramming but I had to post this last picture of the #Loladrawstringbag with a peekaboo appletini ( #PureElementsolids ) lining πŸ’— #Skopelosfabrics #katarinaroccella #artgalleryfabrics #skopelosfabric #bag #patchwork

...and one for the new Quilt pattern that will probably be called Greeka (like four of the geometric prints).

Tagged by @lilysquilts here is my #widrn - my improvisational #quilt with #Skopelosfabrics is pieced and I will work on adding the borders today. I am tagging @sharonhollanddesigns @jessica_alex and @mvquilts 😊 #katarinaroccella #artgalleryfabrics #

When I say I am trying, I really mean that, because life sometimes get too crazy and trying is the best I can do.

On the other exciting side, I will have some sneak peaks of my upcoming lines, very soon.
I hope that you are following me on IG, because I am more active over there :)
Happy spring!!!

@artgalleryfabrics created this beautiful hexi composition with prints from my spring collection - Skopelos, available in April 2015 You can see better preview on theirs website, link in @artgalleryfabrics profile #skopelosfabric #artgalleryfabrics #agfco

I was so excited when I finally received some strike offs of my third collection for Art Gallery fabrics- Skopelos.

  Skopelos strike offs

If you are reading my blog, you would know that we are choosing Skopelos island as our summer Vacation spot, over and over again. We are so in love with that beautiful Greek island and that's why I had to use that inspiration for my newest fabric collection.
Later today, you will be able to see the full preview of my 3rd fabric collection, Skopelos. It's inspired by this gorgeous Greek island, it's gorgeous architecture, rich florals, sand and the sea. ❤️ #skopelosfabric #skopelos #agfcomingsoon #inspiration
I hope that you will be able to feel that magnetism that Skopelos has for me and that you will enjoy using the Skopelos prints for your creations!!!

Here are some more Strike offs pics...more of that soon :)
