Earlier today we released our “Fraktur” collection for The Art of Home Club! This Collection was inspired by the “Fraktur” art of the Germans that settled in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (near to where I live in New Jersey). I also used some new fabrics from my friend Pat Sloan that were just perfect for this Collection – “Birdsong” by Benartex (you can get the fabrics here! )
Members of The Art of Home Club get brand new patterns and projects like these on the 20th of every month.
This pattern contains instructions to make a quilt, wall hanging and table runner. Plus there are 5 gorgeous applique and hand embroidery patterns which feature birds and florals.
According to Frakturweb.org – “Fraktur is a folk art form practiced by Pennsylvania Germans principally from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. The name derives from that of a distinctive German script marked by “fractured” pen strokes and the form has clear roots in European folk culture. Fraktur blossomed into a uniquely rich, colorful and iconographic form of expression in the United States, tied to rites of social life.”
These projects are EXCLUSIVE to The Art of Home Club, meaning that you won’t find them in stores or anywhere else on the internet. Only members of The Art of Home Club can get these adorable designs!!
We only open up The Art of Home Club to new members a few times per year- click here to find out more and to get on our “waiting list,” so you’ll be the first to know when we open enrollment again!
