Amy Butler book signing

My LQS sponsored a trunk show and personal appearance by fabric designer Amy Butler last night. Lucky me--I had time to go and meet this extremely friendly, charming, and talented woman. Her fabrics and designs have had a major impact on quilters. Here's a shot of one of the displays of her projects:



This one is a shot of her latest line, Daisy Chain, on the middle shelf:



Here she's talking to one of the people who came to talk to her. She was generous with her time. She explained a little about her design process and answered all kinds of questions:



She's signing one of her books:



Finally, here's what I came home with:




I got a packet with 2 (two!) free patterns, autographed by Amy; a free fat quarter; and 2-1/2 yards for a new purse. Although upon reflection, I'm thinking of doing a messenger bag instead for my laptop.

  1. Such lovely fabrics! I'm sure you've had a wonderful time. :-) Do post a pic once your purse/laptop bag is done.

  2. I'm still very jealous. I would love to meet her (and get free stuff!) and see that Daisy Chain fabric in person. We have one fabric store here and they carry NO designer fabrics. It's incredibly depressing. No Amy Butler, Michael Miller, Heather Bailey...nothing. I'd love to see some of them in person before ordering online. You're lucky to have such a great store near you!
