Fabric Feature: Rock n Romance by Pat Bravo!!

We are just enthralled with Art Gallery Fabrics this year! Those girls are creating some beautiful collections left and right with really fresh and unique color schemes and obviously so knock-out prints! And Rock 'n Romance, the newest set by Pat Bravo is absolutely no exception!!

My goodness, these purples are too perfect!! There hasn't been a ton of purple that we've loved out on the market but as soon as we pulled these bolts out of the box we were all ooh'ing and ahhh'ing! And the mixture of shades in purple, coral and gray is just a really fresh and feminine look!
How cute is this skull quilt?? With florals so fancy and colors so sweet, this look is anything but scary! Not ready to get that crazy? A simple strip quilt, patchwork or pinwheels would still be fantastic! That's the wonderful thing about fabrics, some are so great it doesn't matter WHAT you make! 

Redo your rockstar's bedroom with a new quilt, funky throw pillows, cool and graphic curtains and maybe a fabric covered memory board or some wall art! You could even cover a lamp shade with one or more of these prints to bring even more color in! Love the quilt on the bed?? You can dowload the FREE PATTERN for the Star-Studded quilt here!

And they are obviously wonderful prints for fashion and accessories!! Pick your favorite bold print and make a simple skirt, a tunic or a dress...or...go REALLY crazy and make up your own design!!! Mix a few prints and create hip totes or makeup bags for all your girlfriends for Christmas!
Try this project I found on the Art Gallery Blog for a pair of rocking shoelaces that will make your sneakers really stand out! Great for young ones or the young at heart, make these Scrappy Patchwork Shoelaces and you'll give your everday kicks a little bit of attitude! 
This is a super fun grouping of fabrics and there's just so many fun ideas out there to try!! What would you like to make in Rock 'n Romance??

This would be perfect for my 21 y/o daughter. She's becoming a grown-up and still trying to keep her fun and funky youthful spirit.

She needs a throw sized quilt for her couch with a couple throw pillows to go with it and I think this collection could really deliver great results.

I do have a question; I love the purse shown in the photo. Is there a pattern I can buy? A tutorial? I would love to make that!
