New! Amy Butler Quilt

Well, I’ve put my other projects on temporary hold while I work on items for the Craft Fair I’ll be in November 22nd. Here is an Amy Butler quilt I made this weekend (design to binding!) from various Amy fabrics I’d been saving for a particular project. I’m the type of sewer that is real excited about a project until I let it sit a few years and then I get over it. Not that I got over Amy Butler, because I LOVE her fabrics, but I was going to make this very large quilt with her prints that required a lot of tone on tone white/off whites and I had collected 1. That’s right, o-n-e! lol. So needless to say, I had all these wonderful Amy Butler fabrics just sitting there waiting to me made into something fabulous and here it is!

Here’s a peak of the backing…I found this adorable little quilter’s flannel in a polka dot and the dots match a lot of the front fabrics. I love how the blue brought out the blue in the quilt and toned down the pinks a little. It feels more balanced that way.

Here’s my DH holding up the quilt so I could give you a view of the entire quilt.

And lastly, just another view against a darker background.

I have scraps left over so I might work on a table topper, some burp rags or bibs…who knows what you’ll see in these fabrics next!? Any suggestions? 🙂
