Rock Garden Lounge Pillow | An Art Gallery Fabrics Project

_DSC0011

I haven't been making too much lately, but I did take some time to sew together this fantastic lounge pillow recently and I absolutely adore it! It's made from the gorgeous new Rock 'n Romance line by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics, and I made the free project pattern available over on the Art Gallery Fabrics blog today.

I'd love to be able to share some of this amazing new fabric with a lucky reader!  Want to win a fat quarter bundle of Rock 'n Romance?  Simply leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly select a winner later this week.  Since I haven't been around much this summer, I'd love to hear what y'all have been up to.  What's your best memory of this past summer?

Good luck, and keep rockin'!

  2. Summer seems a long time ago! But favourite memory was the Olympics - we were at the Opening Ceremony and it was totally unreal. Although the Fat Quarterly Retreat was a close second!!

  3. My favorite memory from this summer was my husband coming home after a year in Germany. My favorite quilt memory was finally getting better at free motion quilting (not good, but better).

  5. favourite memory this summer...that's a long time ago already! visiting with my mother and sisters in Victoria BC in August, and finishing up a quilt (for one of my sisters) with my mother. I'd love some of this Rock'n Romance fabric! I've been drooling over it since it was released!

  6. The pillow looks great! I like the flowers you added.

    My favorite memories are taking the kids to the pool and going to a huge family reunion.

  7. Oh I love the Rock n' Romance! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! My favorite memory from the summer was the visit from my nieces (they're 1 and 3). We went to the aquarium, drew pictures in the driveway with sidewalk chalk, and made a castle cake, complete with Disney princesses and Queen Elizabeth - it was as awesome as it sounds!!

  10. It technically wasn't summer since we left two days after the first day of fall, but we surprised our 7-year old twins with a trip to Disneyland.

    ReplyDelete
  11. What a great pillow! And what fun fabric! Favorite summer memory? Traveling to New Orleans and to Southern California!

    ReplyDelete
  12. We went on two great camping trips! So much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love that cushion! My summer memories revolve around the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic/Paralympic games - it was a wonderful summer to be in the UK!
    P.S. And, of course, FQR 2012! I wasn't there but I followed every minute on Twitter, etc!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Beautiful fabric! My summer memories are the Olympics too. Our son-in-law won a gold in the Olympics and our daughter was able to go to London with him. We were able to celebrate with them when they returned home.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love the cushion,,and the fabric! My best summer memories are all wrapped up in watching the grandbaby discover the world! Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The cushion is great, such great colours. I remember doing plenty of EPPing while the Olympics were on and the Queens Diamond Jubilee. Oh and waiting for summer to start properly weather wise!

  18. My best memory of last summer was getting home from 7 weeks in the hospital/rehab place (don't ask).

    That pillow is great.........but then, everything you make is great or greater.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the pillow. Best memory of the summer (what summer?) was a weekend away at FQ Retreat in London, camping in the pouring rain was memorable but not my best!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Lovely pillow and I adore the fabric line. Summer flew by uneventfully and the most exciting thing was getting ready for and looking forward to Sewing Summit.

    ReplyDelete
  21. My favourite part of the summer was the road trip from Toronto to South Carolina with my husband and step daughter. I got to see lots of America I'd only flown over before, it was wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love this sophisticated pillow. That is one fab fabric line. My favorite part of the summer was our family beach trip.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Vacation of course! Well nothing big this year! Just camping with the family! But it was still great fun! Oh I love the pillow!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think a highlight of my summer was taking Rachel's Handstitched class at Stitched in Color. Thanks for having the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great giveaway!
    The highlight of my summer was our family holiday to Ireland!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That pillow is amazing. The colours of the fabric are "rockin". My summer plans to visit Nashville (Lipscomb University where my daughter was offered a soccer scholarship) were squashed when my daughter (17 yr. old) tore her ACL playing rep soccer. eliz.i@sympatico.ca

  27. Crocheting in the garden every afternoon while my toddler played in his paddling pool :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Gee, was it time in Yosemite? Or time at the Eastern Shore? Or just time with my grand baby?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Summer was spent by the pool with a couple weekend getaways. Lazy and relaxing just like I like it. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The best part of this past summer is that we actually had summer. The previous year my son was being treated for cancer so it was all a blur.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The crocheted flowers are just lovely, I remember my sister making an entire afghan with those. This fabric is so pretty!

    This summer we went to visit my husband's Grandma for her 95th birthday. It was quite a big bash! 95 candles is too many, even on two cakes. It was a little frightening.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, my goodness, that is SO lovely! We hosted a HUGE Family Picnic this summer. It was SO HOT, but fun.

    ReplyDelete
  33. An Alaskan cruise was the highlight of my summer. Love the fabric, thanks for the give-away!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My highlight of the summer was taking a train down to New Orleans. It was a great trip that holds a lot of memories.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is a great looking pillow! The fabric is gorgeous. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    The summer was fabulous and I managed to get hooked on straight line quilting. I've made a few table runners for friends as gifts and now I am making one for me! Very simple but the quilting effect really makes the runners look fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My husband and I went on vacation to Walt Disney World and then on the Disney Dream Carribean cruise. The highlight was spending time with him and not getting sea sick! Thanks for the give away - love your pillow!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have loved everything I've seen made in Rock n Romance. Awesome line. Love your pillow. Been sewing a lot this summer but my favorite memory may be starting a modern quilt guild in our area. So excited.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd love a chance to win some fabric! I'm moving today and it would be nice to have some cool new things to play with in my cool old home. (I'm moving in with my Dad at my childhood home to give him some security and care. He's only 90!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love your pillow and this fabric line. I hope you find some time to do more sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very cool. Thanks for the opportunity. Best memory of the summer=lots of family time.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Fab pillow John. Love the crochet flowers. Last summers trip to the coast was wonderful in between a million quilt projects

    ReplyDelete
  42. Awesome pillow, John! I love the Heartbreaker Rock n Romance colorway, but Dreammaker is right up there, too! And oh, the summer -- I have no idea what happened to it, where do those days go :D? I learned how to use my sewing machine, perhaps that's where the time went :D!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the Art Gallery fabrics! Went back home for my 50th reunion from Grammar school. It was a lot of fun and since my husband had never been to Chicago we had some cool days in the loop too. Thanks for the chance to win some fabric.Hope your summer was great too!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very pretty pillow! I like the Dreammaker colourway. I had a week of staycation this summer to sew and garden and relax.

    ReplyDelete
  45. The Dreammaker colorway is really awesome. Maybe because I like soft rock, but more likely it's those teenage dreams of romance.
    I got to help my son with his first garden. Those tomatoes he shared were awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Today my god daughter told me she wanted a pillow for her day bed for Christmas, and ie been searching for a good tutorial all day. I've just found it! I'd love to win the fabric to make this for her, but hey, if I don't, I'm buying it and making it anyway!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow, I would love to win.
    This summer has been a wonderful one because it is the first summer in our family with two children running around, playing in the garden, mostly getting on and often falling out over nothing. Our second child just turned 2 this summer, so now big sis has a real playmate. Bliss.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love the pillow, but don't seem to have many fantastic memories of this summer - my sister was getting close to giving birth, but my niece didn't actually appear unti September. And apart from that, my summer was spent applying for jobs in the company restructure. All very stressfull, but they offered me the job of my dreams on Friday. So I've forgotten the whole summer now - autumn's much more spectacular.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love that pillow - Rock n Romance colors pop! Not much sewing took place this summer but I'm starting a new project with some Japanese fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have so many great memories from this summer to think about but for this I will say that I'm excited to have started quilting over the summer! It is addictive, isn't it! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Great pillow! We had a great summer which included a week long house boat trip that was so fun! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sad, sad I know... But my summer was all about work as a company approached me in June, July was all about wrapping up my old job and August 1st i started in my new job. Luckily I did manage quite a bit of seeing too :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Lovely fabric! My best memory was going to the coast over the Fourth of July and watching the fireworks on the beach! It was so crowded, but amazing firewords show.

    ReplyDelete
  54. For me it's last winter as we're just coming into summer here in New Zealand. I think the best memory was when we got snow that closed down school for a few days, but didn't cause power cuts. There was an amazing snowman on our lawn and a roaring fire to keep us warm indoors.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love your pillow and of course the fabric is gorgeous too! This summer we had our 3 cousins from France visiting us in Canada - it was awesome, spectacular, and memorabled!!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The best memory this summer was taking my son swimming for the first time at his Babus' house (term for grandpas/grandmas/old people). He loved it and was such a chill baby!

    Fawn

    ReplyDelete
  57. Best memory from this summer has to be Jubilee weekend in London with the Fat Quarterly Team and a whole bunch of lovelies at a certain quilt retreat! The best ever!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Welcome back John! My fav memory from summer was my short week in Manzanita,OR where I met Monica and Violet in person and we shared a 3 hour coffee!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Best memory of the summer: no after school grandniece sitting. We actually had some time for quilting and could leave the cutting station on the dining table without having to keep things away from curious kids. Thanks for the chance - great looking pillow for your girlie wild child.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I absolutely love this fabric! My LQS doesn't carry Art Gallery Fabrics (yet), but I am hoping to convince them they need to!

  82. Favorite memory of the summer has to be our family's two week road trip from the West Coast to Yellowstone. I have fond memories of a similar trip when I was a kid and it was wonderful to be able to share it with my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I took a beginning quilting class in 1985 with my mother. I was a newlywed, and this was before rotary cutters and strip piecing. I learned the laborious way to cut squares and triangles from cardboard templates, and not surprisingly, I didn't have much fun. A few years later I got a rotary cutter and started quilting in earnest. However, measuring, tracing, cutting and matching seamlines with my beloved mom is a memory more precious than gold!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love these fabrics - modern and vintage all in one!

    I had a great time this summer on my first trip to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, UK. I'm just getting in to patchwork so had a great time looking at the beautiful exhibitions, going to workshops, and, of course, stocking up the fabric stash!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  118. I do believe that my favorite memory from this past summer was watching our daughter discover that grass is an okay plant to walk on. We encouraged her by placing her a few feet away from her pool. Once she realized that the grass was just fine to play/walk on we were off.

  133. Ahah, best part of summer was doing my best to not be the mosquito's late-afternoon lunch :P Easily done by staying indoors sewing, making canvas insultation covers for our water pipes (preventing frozen water pipes). And visiting the NW area N.C. Blue Ridge Pkwy! Even the air is beautiful up there :D
