I am really inspired by some of the fabric designers out there like Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey and the creator of this bunch, Amy Butler. Such beautiful designs and with the wonderful colors, it sometimes seems a shame to cut them up.
I remember the very first quilt I made. I was newly married and took a class at a local school in the evening. I bought a bunch of fabric we couldn't afford and, horror of horrors, proceeded to cut up perfectly good fabric into little pieces! I finished it but never like it and it wasn't until a few years later when I took another class with a really great teacher that I fell in love with the process and didn't look at cutting up the fabric as a crime. Maybe I should just play with these a while longer and admire them on my cutting table before I cut them up.
