So, here's the deal. You all know I love Amy Butler fabrics, and through no fault of my own, I have amassed quite a hoard of it. Okay, maybe I'm at fault just a little bit.
At one time, I probably had over 30 yards of Amy Butler fabrics, in 42 different prints (I counted). Yikes! That is a LOT! Little by little though, I am chipping away at it, which is why I've made so many quilts with them. I am ready to bust my stash. I have considered separating them by color and mixing them with others, but Amy Butler fabrics are so bold and vibrant that it can be tough to do that.
It all started when I designed Acadian Trellis for Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine almost a year ago. I used 16 different Cameo prints, and ended up with quite a lot left over. Westminster Fabrics graciously provided the fabrics for that quilt, and they were very generous with their cuts.
The rest of my Amy Butler stash was collected for a custom twin sized quilt over the summer, and then the customer found other fabrics she preferred. To be fair, I ordered the fabrics before she completely committed to them because the thought of all of that Amy Butler made me a little giddy and I lost my head. Other than that, I have collected a print here and there, but nothing major- honest!
The good thing is, when I sold my Unruly quilt, two other people wanted a quilt made with similar fabrics, so this is one of those. I didn't have to hunt down the fabrics I needed because they were already sitting right there on my shelf! As much as I love Amy Butler fabrics, I have to admit that I'm ready to use them up.
