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.
