Amy Butler Cameo Baby Girl Quilt

If you haven’t noticed I love buying fat quarters or charm packs of a line of fabric.  I tend to love a line and want some of each fabric to play with.  If I really like something I will go back and buy yardage.

Amy Butler’s Cameo line is no different.  I have a number of her prints in my stash.  The color combination in this line really drew me in with pinks, aquas, greens and a small hint of gray.  Had to have so when The French Seam had a sale on fat quarters, I couldn’t resist.  This is one of my favorites and there is a voile project in the works with it too.

 Look for potholders to be made with these very soon, everything is cut and ready.  I’m just not sure how I want the layout to look.  Probably go back to how I did them originally, very random and the set not matching.  What do you think?  Matching or non-matching sets?

As I cut the fabric for potholders I realized I had enough left over to make a baby quilt.  My brother in law needed a baby girl quilt that was girly and I thought this was the perfect fabric.  Feminine but not just flowers and something pink.  I went my normal disappearing nine patch because I LOVE the random look.  Plus, it’s a great way to make a quick baby quilt.

The quilt is backed in light gray and bound in aqua to coordinate with the colors in the line.  Yes I did machine bind the quilt.  I got counted off for that in the State Fair Sewing Challenge but it’s my go to method.


It’s off to it’s new home in Georgia this weekend.
