When Amy's 'Love' collection came out, this print was my instant favorite. I had to buy a piece, although I had no earthly idea what I'd do with something purple!
The yummy bright mint green background (what is this color called anyways? I think of aqua as being more blue) is one of my favorite colors, and this shade of purple is just divine with it.
When I read that Amy(not Butler) was having a big Amy Butler bash, I thought hmmm... let's make something with that yummy fabric on the pile that you've been looking at every day for months. Of course I didn't sit down and make it till yesterday, and here it is in all it's brilliant purple glory. In a house that doesn't have one other speck of purple. But guess what? I LOVE it!
I used the quilt-as-you-go method, because I'm still not tired of quilting that way. I used a funny old insert that had been hanging around my storage room for years. I kinda like the rectangular shape cause it will be perfect for an afternoon nap. (What nap? asks the 3-year-old)
Another new thing I tried was an invisible zipper in the bottom rather than my usual envelope style back. I like the more tailored look for a change, and I actually had a purple zipper in my drawer. It's been sitting there for years, waiting for purple to come back into style!
