This is a little out of order since I already posted my second quilt, but here you go anyway. I made it using Amy Butler’s Lotus Brick Path Quilt pattern and fabric. I totally heart Amy Butler. She is the one who got me addicted to fabric and got me sewing again in earnest. Since then, I’ve found many other fabric/pattern designers to love, but I still think she sets the standard.
This is a great first quilt to make because the construction is simple, the quilting is stitch-in-the-ditch, and there is no binding. Of course, if it isn’t your first quilt, go crazy – add binding, quilt it as crazy as you want (by hand even – the ultimate in craziness). My favorite thing about this pattern though is that it really displays your beautiful fabrics so you can enjoy them for years. And that is the main reason I picked it.
