Amy Butler has teamed up with Electric Quilt to produce Amy Butler Softwares, a digital collection of 22 new home sewing projects plus nine bonus projects for sewers of all skill levels. See the project previews here (I love the solid triangles quilt!). The program allows users to customize each project and pattern by adjusting sizes, etc. and preview with swatches of Amy Butler fabrics. (I don’t know if you’ll be able to import your own swatch library.)
Amy Butler Softwares will make its debut at Spring Quilt Market 2009 and be available to the public in June 2009. The suggested retail price is a mere $29.95.
It’s a Windows program that will require something like Virtual PC to run on a Mac. I can’t wait to check it out (and I’ve always wanted to play with Electric Quilt software) — maybe it’s time I caved and got Virtual PC!
