Amy Butler {what constitutes addiction?}

UPDATE: Contest is now over, the last counting comment is Tessa’s…winner to be announced.

Disclaimer: I don’t know the names of any of the fabrics on this post. Some are new, some are several years old. I suggest browsing Amy Butler’s website to find the names of the fabric you are looking for. You can find fabric sellers on etsy and various online stores. If you are local, Sew Flakes on Main St. in Broken Arrow carries some Amy Butler fabric.

I like Amy Butler fabric. I do. I remember the first time I saw her fabric. It was 7 years ago and I was in a quilting store with my mom and grandma. Chris and I had just moved back after a year of volunteer work and we were scraping by…with a baby on the way. I was looking for something cheap to add to the sheets I was using for living room curtains….then I saw the Amy Butler section. My heart skipped a beat. It was love at first sight. I couldn’t afford much at $8.00 a yard, so I got 1 yard of my favorite and 1/2 a yard of another. My favorite was a red floral print…it is still in my living room. I still smile at it.

Amy and I have come a long way since that fateful introduction in the quilting store. I still don’t buy much more than a yard at a time, but I sure make those one yard buys go a long way.

I introduced her to crafting at a young age…she was a hardcore crafter in my baby wrap.

Of course basically her whole room is covered in Amy Butler.

More Amy in my house…the stacking toy was made by my mom.

Some old pictures of past projects Amy helped me with.

I can even decorate myself in Amy Butler now…

So why the random Amy Butler post…well my ring is from one of my reader’s etsy stores! Not only does she make rings using Amy Butler designs, but  also makes modern baby mobiles with it too!
