Show me at little "LOVE"

A little bit of Amy Butler's Love that is! Time to switch things up again at the shop. We wanted somthing fresh and fun for those winter blues that seem to creep in on us in January and February, so I did something different than the Moda Bakeshop for the next couple of months.
Amy's new line Love has been in the shop since before Christmas but it is so fun and funky and full of color I couldn't resist using it. Take a peep at some of things we have done with this fabulous fabric. You will fall in "LOVE" with it. And I'm pretty sure you won't have those winter time blues if this is sitting on your cutting table just waiting for all those spring sewing projects.
The retro aprons are still a favorite at the shop.

This is a quilt Marianne Michaels is teaching as one of new classes. It is called Amy's bags, isn't it adorable, just "LOVE" it, don't you? It's done the buggy barn method. Stop in a see it up close and personal, so much better. And the quilt on the table is called the Sexy Hexy, the pattern is from Amy Butler herself. It is a free download on her website, and we do have a few kits in the store for this one.
We carry patterns by Amy. She has a software out now that has alot of her collections on it.
Well worth the investment, and things that probably won't ever be in a pattern packet.
Here's another version of the tote bag I'm teaching at the end of the month all done in the Love collection. This is going to be "one" of my many new spring purses I'm sure!
This line is going really fast, alot of the bolts were already empty before I had the chance to get it out front after the holiday rush, everyone was making their Christmas gifts out of it. But then who couldn't help but not to. It's just that hard to resist.

We still have some of Amy's other lines available. The thing about these fabrics they all go wonderful together so you can mix and match for several different combinations. Stop in and see me and I'll show you some "LOVE"
Happy Sewing, Shannon
