Capri fabric collection

My Capri fabric collection has finally started to arrive in quilt shops worldwide!

There has been some shipping delays caused by pandemic, so the collection is a bit late, but just in time for spring!






Beautiful forsythia flowers are in full bloom, just like during the same period 2 years ago when I originally painted them. It was the beginning of the pandemic, so I remember that I suddenly had a lot of time to paint, as we were forced to stay at home, during major lockdown.



















I started to paint in watercolors, dreaming about the Amalfi coast getaway and Italy vacation, knowing that it will not be that easy to travel and see our Italian family any time soon again. 

So I had to make a print that would represent beautiful and so authentic cities and colorful houses among the Amalfi coast and nearest, Capri island. It was a bit challenging to put it in repeat, but I somehow managed to do it.


I was enchanted with all the phots of the beautiful streets and corners of the Capri island and I am so glad I did a toile version with all these blue inked drawings.

Unfortunately, that print is available only in rayon, but it's a perfect substrate for this lovey print that with added lemons became even more unique.

Of course there are 16 prints in premium quilting cotton, great choices for both quilting and wardrobe making.










I also created this file with matching AGF pure solids, so that it can be convenient for quilt making. 

O course, there are more solids that can be matched with the prints, like pistachio and mint greens, but I tried to narrow down the choices to mainly blues, pinks and yellows.  


I hope that you will enjoy using this collection and that it will instantly take you to this beautiful part of Italy!

I can't wait to show all the beautiful projects that many makers have created for the AGF look book coming March 18th.
