Arizona by April Rhodes, one of Art Gallery’s Limited Edition lines, has arrived here at Modern Domestic. Art Gallery explains “Limited Edition is here to simplify the sewing process, because we know how challenging sewing can be for beginners. Each line is made of 8 prints in quilting weight, 2 in knit and 1 in voile substrates.” Everyone here LOVES this new collection and I’m happy to say we have all the Arizona prints, including the 2 knits and the voile print.
