That Amy Butler.  She’s a ray of sunshine.  A precious lil’ lover.  A bright shiny light.  All the things super vivid and lovely and glittery; that pretty much sums up Ms. Butler.  I love that cat dearly so when I was asked to make something with her newest collection Soul Mate, I couldn’t say no.

Introducing the first project, the *Footnote quilt pattern was calling my name with all 24 pieces of Soul Mate and 24 coordinating FreeSpirit solids, I knew this quilt was destined to be a stunner and eventually to live on my bed!!

Here’s my dad giving his seal of approval during the design process.  He also came to the rescue by bringing me my mom’s sewing machine when mine crashed during the process.

I’m so grateful for Quilting by the Stitch who was able to quilt this duder beautifully!   I really like simple, irregular quilting.  These lines work like magic.

Bright colors totally found in nature, this collection is incredibly love infused and filled with wonder.

  1. OMG, that quilt is AMAZING. You did such a great job! What a stunner.

    I also enjoyed seeing so many of your loved ones, especially Jamie. My #1 soul mate is my husband—he’s my ride-or-die man and I love him to bits. I do have a small group of chosen family who I love dearly too and I’m so grateful for those kinds of friends. Collecting soul mates from different times in one’s life is the best.

  2. Heather, I LOVE LoVe LOVE your quilt! Absolutely gorgeous and the quilting is perfect. Thanks so very much for the shout-out, my dear. You are such a special lady and it is wonderful meeting your soulmate, your dad, and the rest of your tribe! XOXOXO

  3. Wow. Beautiful quilt and fabric. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Nothing like a selfie to bring out the fun.

  4. My husband is my soul mate in everything, we will be celebrating 25 years of marriage in September. My friend Jennene is my mentor and quilting soul mate.
