Hanging with Amy Butler and a giveaway!

Don’t be jealous but…

I got to meet and hang out with the famous Amy Butler! AHHHHHHHH! I know right!!!

Amy was stopping in over at Material Girls Quilt Shop, (which by the way is the most fantastic fabric store on planet earth! It’s worth coming to Utah just for fabric, it’s that good!) so I had to meet her!

Amy is as darling as you think she would be! I mean come on! If you could be a fabric designer and be filled with ideas and color combos and magical inspiration you’d pretty much be all smiles right?! Well Amy was and I felt like I was meeting Jenifer Aniston! She is one of the leading ladies of fabric design and this gal is more then just a fabric guru! Her patterns are swoon worthy and her prints are dreamy! Every line she has ever put out is a hit and her latest collect is as fantastic as the last!

Look at this yummy stuff! Her latest handbags and pillows were all on display and I wanted to take all of them home…including Amy herself!


I meet up with my local gal pals and we had the best night at Material Girls!

Tauni, Kirstyn, Tam, Char

Kami, Tam, Amy, Tauni, Lara, Any Butler, Jen, Char, Me


And of course I had all of you on my mind as I played in this fabric fairy land! I was sure to pick up my favorite bag pattern “Swing Bag” and asked Amy to sign it! GIVEAWAY time!!!!

Who wants to win this darling autographed pattern? Look how cute it is…

Now I’m wishing I would have bought a pattern for myself too!!! You can win this darling pattern by simply leaving a comment in today’s comments section! just tell me what your all time favorite Amy Butler Fabric is! I love to see what other people love!

I’ll pick a winner next Thursday and announce it on my Blue Cricket Design Facebook page so be sure to be a follower to see if you won!


And how generous is the beautiful Amy you ask? Well Amy has so many beautiful FREE down-loadable patterns on her site that you won’t be too sad if you don’t win! Be sure to go check them out! I adore the Bloom Quilt and the Love and Peace Wall art!


Happy sewing!


And FYI: Be sure to head over to the SNAP conference blog and become a  follower! There will be another Amy Butler giveaway on there very soon!

  57. 58

    I like so many of her fabrics but my favorite one is Pine/Corriander. It is perfect for this skirt I plan to make.

  58. 59

    Seriously? Where would one start with a favorite? Soul Blossoms? Midwest Modern (I or II), pick a bunch Organic?… I can’t come visit, because I’m pretty sure I’d never leave!

  59. 60

    aaaah! I’m so jealous! Nadine told me she was coming to her shop a couple weeks ago and I wished that I lived in Utah just so I could have been there!! I love AMY!! And that bag is adorable made up in that disco floral (is that what it’s called?)

    Now asking what my favorite fabric of hers is, well, that’s like picking a favorite child! I love ALL of her polka dots and each collection has a print that I adore. Like Wallflower from Lotus, Damask Scroll from Love, and the floral paisley from Soul Blossoms. I can’t wait to get a hold of some of her new corduroy!!

    thanks for a chance to win! (PS – Jessica (the Hussy) sent me your way!)

  60. 61

    Oh my gosh. So jealous!!! Once again I am wondering why I don’t live in Utah. ;)
    I love all her fabrics – she’s my favorite designer – but I think my favorites are August Fields. Or Soul Blossoms. It’s hard to pick. ;)
    Thanks for the super giveaway!!

  72. 73

    I am not fimilar with her fabric, just because I do not sew. I have wanted to learn for a long time but just have not taken the time to learn. I love the pattern on the bag, it looks like a fun pattern for summer. This makes me want to run out, buy the pattern and learn how to sew with it!! Thanks so much for sharing

    Barbara says:

    Oh….so exciting. I’m an old person but a new sewer and I love the bright beautiful Amy Butler fabrics. I am beginning to make pillowcase dresses for great granddaughters and my first fabric choice was from the Love Collection, water bouquet/midnight. I’m using Amy’s pattern for pillowcases because all the ready-made cases were so dull! That’s a beautiful pattern for the bag…I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

  86. 87

    I’m a little obsessed with blue coriander. Subtle yet beautiful!

  87. 88

    I’m sorry…but I can’t choose just one. I love them all! I would love to win this pattern! :)

    okay, although i totally love them all, right now i am in complete adoration of grey/floating buds from the pink dahlia collection – which, btw, the whole darn collection is just fabulous! it is just so perfect….especially for a purse. i can see it casual enough to go with jeans & a cute top or dressed up too! oh how i would swoon to win that pattern & get to make my own!! lol!
