Fat Quarter Project with Urban Mod!!

As you all know, we all go pretty bananas over Art Gallery Fabrics! And it's not just because of their gorgeous color ways and totally hip designers putting out the freshest looking prints around...their fabric just feels different! It's so soft and luscious, you can't help but want to rub up against these fabulous fabrics which is why we adore them for fashion projects but they are too good to stop at our wardrobes! These are the types of prints and colors you want to be surrounded by, so I may have squealed a bit upon seeing this Fat Quarter Gang project on the Art Gallery Blog!!

Utilizing a store bought shower curtain, you can give it a completely "unique to you" look without having to buy TONS of yardage!
What you'll need:
12 - fat quarters of Art Gallery Fabrics (Urban Mod Collection)
a cotton standard shower curtain measuring 72"x72"
coordinating thread
sewing pins
rotary cutter/mat/ruler
cardboard or card stock for making the triangle template, marker, scissors

I just LOVE the modern look of adding this patchwork panel to a shower curtain and its just SEW SIMPLE! What a way to add some punch to your bathroom! How awesome would it be to make this cool shower curtain, then sew some fabric strips in your favorite of the fabrics to some coordinating towels to make a matching set? You can sew them to the natural band that comes on most towels in the same way you attach the patchwork panel to the curtain. I think it would be a great Dorm Warming gift for any College Freshmen who will be going away this Fall!
Get the full tutorial here! And be sure to share pictures on Facebook if you make one!! WE WANNA SEE!! Happy Sewing!
