This giveaway is now closed. Thanks!

Art Gallery Fabrics recently teamed up with designers Sara Lawson, April Rhodes and Caroline Hulse to offer AGF Limited Edition, small collections of fresh, contemporary designs. Each collection includes eight quilting weight prints, plus two of the prints in knit and one in voile. We have a new project from each of the first three designers this week, plus giveaways for fat quarter bundles from each collection!

First up is Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness with the Brookfield Bag Pattern featuring her new Jungle Ave. collection. Jungle Ave. mixes hard and soft with an “urban jungle” vision of elephants in the city streets, Underground Routes and more!

Sara designed the Brookfield Bag to get you excited about Jungle Ave.:

    This small bag will allow you to try out several fun bag-making techniques; adding a metal twist lock, using piping in a bag, making darts and adding elastic pockets. Use your favorite print and combine it with a coordinating solid to make your fabric pop!

Download the free Brookfield Bag PDF pattern, and comment below for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of Jungle Ave. Tell us what you like about the collection, or which print jumps out at you. You can also just share some appreciation for the fabulous Sara Lawson too! (Don’t forget about her free Kennedy Bag Pattern and her Iron Reviews here at Sew Mama Sew.)

  12. Diane says:

    I love the Underground Route Fabric.

  13. Amy says:

    Love the fishscale print! Would like great in this purse pattern too ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Maria says:

    I’m loving both the Brookfield and Kennedy Bags. Very generous of Sara to offer the patterns as a free download. I’d definitely like to make them. About the fabric…that would be a difficult choice. I’d have to make several :o)

  15. Courtney A says:

    This purse is too darn cute, I will be making it for sure. I really love the the “underground” pattern and the vibrant colors of the whole collection.

  16. Susie says:

    I love this purse pattern by Sara ! The Floral Asphalt and Underground will look awesome with the B & W Neighborhoods in a bag by Sara!

  17. Paula James says:

    Too cute! Love Underground Routes, Word on the Street and Floral Asphalt. Would love to win this collection. Plan to make this purse.

  18. Alesha Klein says:

    Beautiful collection. I like the textured look of the design, almost like each fabric has a different feel. My favorites are Electreecity and Deep Ocean. Would love to incorporate these into a “baby boy” quilt. Thank you for sharing this giveaway.

  19. Mary Terry says:

    Love me some elephants AND my heart belongs in the city!

  20. Java Jane says:

    Two things about the collection stand out: Electreecity (great name for such a joyous fabric) and that the collection offers knit and voile options. Finding good knits is such a challenge!

  21. Karen H says:

    Cute Collection! What I love most about this collection? I love that there are only 8 different patterns! And 8 REALLY nice patterns rather than having so many blenders. It makes the line feel manageable. My favorite two are Greenhouse Lane (I saw Julie’s Top – Intrepid Thread) and Word on the Street – reminds me of a Japanese print. Can’t wait for it to be out!

  22. I miss Chicago, and Brookfield Zoo. This entire collection reminds me of the zoo, the skyline, the water, the traffic, well- maybe not as happy a feeling but you know what I mean, even baseball. This fabric line takes me to a wonderful place full of memories. Thank you for taking me back AND for the opportunity to win my own fat quarter collection.

  23. Barbara Bradford says:

    I thought that Sara Lawson had out did herself with the free Kennedy bag, and now to offer the Brookfield Bag pattern free too is amazing… Love the elephants but the Floral Asphalt lined with the Word on the street is calling me. !! Just a lovely collection

    Love the purse and plan to make my soon to be DIL one.

  28. pat says:

    such inspiration comes from this, a wonderful quilt is what i see happening with the material. thanks for all your work.

  29. Lynn says:

    I love the bag, but at first I didn’t think I would like the elephants for me, but looking at the other selection of fabrics, for me I like the floral and the geometric pattern but looking closer they all have potential and I can see me using them in different applications. Great variety.

  30. Tiffany says:

    I really love the modern, playful feel to the collection. Dotted Boulevards and Neighborhood are my favorites!

  31. Julie Craven says:

    I love all fabric with the hint of a pink in it. I’m not really a girly girl, but pink has always spoken to me. And now I’ll be singing Jungle Boogie the rest of the day. Make it stop:0

  70. Lora Cotton says:

    I love the bright colors, and the unique designs! Love the Brookfield Bag, because it’s a perfect size for fairs/festivals/yard/garage sales, when you don’t want (or need) the extra bulk of your regular bag. BONUS that it’s a cross body type, that way your hands are always free!!!

  71. Barbara Lasky says:

    Love the Neighborhoods.. and Blue Lagoon!

  77. JLVerde says:

  164. DeborahGun says:

    I adore the elephants!

  165. allison pogany says:

  182. Jeanie says:

    Nice sized bag and cute design! I love the title of the collection, as it makes me think of the documentaries that you see with elephants walking free in the cities and towns….no more uncommon than a dog or cat. Great colors too. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  183. Chris says:

    Love the elephants. Thanks for the pattern.

  184. Heather says:

    I like the Deep Ocean fabric. It is a very unique color.

  185. Linda j says:

    I really like this bag . Downloaded and can’t wait to start.
    Only problem is I may have to make more than one because it’s
    Such a pretty shape.

  186. JulieCC says:

    This is so cute! It looks a bit difficult for me, but I may have to attack it sometime as it looks doable with the great pattern!

    I love Soft & Stable! If you use headliner foam, be sure to try not to have it next to your needle plate – it won’t feed well. S&S feeds so well!

    I love the colors in the collection and Floral Asphalt is awesome! Hmm, big pattern?

    Deep Ocean has a cool effect!

  187. Anita says:

    Great looking bag!

    The elephant print is the one I like the most.

  195. Emma says:

    I actually really like the black and white prints – and I don’t have many of those in my stash (amazingly enough!) so these would round it out perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚

  196. Sara says:

    Yep – it’s a jungle out there….nice play on city and jungle.

  197. Tammy says:

    I love the jungle!
