I love these fabrics! Look at her website, just above the pictures is a link for free patterns. I like the "Ginger Bliss" near the bottom. Looks quick too.

I would make a rag quilt too. I made a denim for our daughter when she went off to college. Denim will last through the abuse of the college years. Just a thought!

The line is eerily similar to last years "Love" pattern...so, you could do the Sexy Hexy Love quilt with the Soul Blossoms Fabric.

Totally agree with these thoughts! Some solids are needed to give a "visual break".

P.S. I love Amy Butler designs.

check out the 10 minute block tutorial. You could go with a solid center and solid sashing between the blocks. I love the 10 minute block cause it goes together so quickly. you can make the starting blocks any size. I did 9" blocks and the end block was 17".

Beautiful fabric. You should have no problem coming up with something. Even just different size blocks. How about a disappearing nine patch? that would be great, I think.

Disappearing 9 patch or Turning Twenty. I've see lots of Amy's fabric made into these patterns and they are stunning.
