Butler Love

by Julie Hirt

This is my blood, sweat and tears quilt.  Took me forever to finish this thing and for some reason I didn’t enjoy making this one.  Love the fabrics and the end result though!


The fabric is from Amy Butler’s Love collection.  I found someone on etsy last year that was selling 5″ squares – I think most of the collection is represented here.  Then I chose my 3 favorite designs for the border, binding and backing.

This is the first throw I’ve straight-lined quilted.  I think it was more stressful than free motion because you can definitely see any screw ups!

On to the next project… I have a new nephew coming in September and his room theme is monkeys.  Think I’ll try a rag quilt with the Funky Monkey sock pattern fabrics.
