Fall Quilt Market 2010 – FreeSpirit/Westminster – Amy Butler

Westminster / Rowan - Amy Butler

Did I say that Echino was probably the most-photographed display? Certainly that honor has to go to Amy Butler. This season her award-winning booth was devoted to her new fabric collection Soul Blossoms (which is just hitting stores now), two new sewing patterns (the Reversible Sunday Sling Bag and the Oval Patchy Pillow, which also includes instructions for square and rectangular pillows), her new book Style Stitches, and a new line of bags for Kalencom, featuring some new surface designs and made with organic cotton and high-grade leather accents. There are also three new free patterns: Patchy Jeans, Bloom Quilt, and Sunshine Quilt.

And in other news, she’s also got a second yarn collection for Rowan coming in Spring 2011, called River Camp, and new organic bedding and bath goods, handwoven rugs, and eco-friendly wallpapers. You can see these all on her website now.

    Thanks so much for showing these fabrics in use. I’ve been admiring them but from swatches in online fabric stores I’ve had NO IDEA how big the prints are on any of them. I’d like to see pictures like this of more fabric lines. It is so hard to judge from a little image just what the print will look like in person. I shop online 98% of the time as I live in PODUNK!

      CJ, I think that if you are looking at fabrics used in a bag or pillow, they are probably from the home dec collection and are larger in scale — the quilting cottons are mostly medium scale.
