I love Amy Butler fabric. It's organic-looking, modern and always done in the most gorgeous colors. The very first modern fabric I bought many years ago was an Amy Butler. See that navy and aqua piece in the lower bottom of this picture? - that's it!
So around Christmas time last year, I took out all the Amy Butler fabrics I've collected over the years and started cutting them up to make Hourglass blocks. My Bee buddy and fellow STLMQG member, Rene, even gave me some of her scraps to round out my collection.
When I laid out my blocks, I decided to be a little daring and see how it would look with some "empty" spaces. I wasn't real sure about it, but went with the plan and I think it turned out kind of interesting!
I could be wrong, but I think I have a piece of every collection including the newest, Alchemy.
Simple straight line quilting...
And some more AB on the back...
It was a fun quilt to make! Rita at Red Pepper Quilts has a great tutorial on making the blocks. You should try it! . . . Cindy
