found something to keep me busy.

by @according2kelly on August 28, 2007

i like quilting, but i’m not very good, so i don’t know what possessed me to make a quilt for my king size bed. well, actually i know what possessed me… amy butler’s incredible fabrics. this should definitely keep me busy for a while.

amy butler inspired me to make a quilt, too. but since i've NEVER made a quilt, i decided to start with one of her handbags. baby steps... baby steps...

That's going to be really pretty! I am so glad to hear there's someone else who likes quilting, but admits to not being 'very good at it.' The few quilts I've made look pretty from a distance...but don't ever check them out with a magnifying glass, LOL! Can you say...crooked seams? Hey, they're still cozy!

That's a huge project and it looks like you're well underway and I love the fabrics you chose. That's a project you'll be able to enjoy for years to come.

I'm so jealous!!! I love Amy Butler's fabric!!! I'm not good at sewing either but if I got some of her material (like the mix n' match that you got) I would try my best! Good luck please post a picture when you're done!!!

love the fabrics your using. that will be a nice quilt. i've never made a quilt but there is a secret part of me that would like to do a patchwork one-but i would want it quilted and i don't know how to do that.

Oooh, she's going to be pretty. And the only way to get "good" (it looks as if you already are!) is to make more quilts!

i say if you're going to do something, do it up big! I think it will definitely keep you occupied--ha! The fabrics are gorgeous.
