I love this day! I participated in one of the first ones they did and it was so fun - I whipped up just a little something to offer up to you today.
If you have been here before you might have figured out that I have a bit of a thing for Amy Butler anything. I got an email from my local quilt shop that they had Soul Blossoms in and it was 20% off. I just went in to look. I SWEAR.
To be honest I wasn't sure I was going to even like it. I had seen it online and was intrigued but nothing really jumped out at me. So I just wanted to go see for myself. It's an interesting line. Very complex. And it doesn't have your typical mix of prints - blenders, small, large, etc. They are ALL bold, large, vibrant and pretty amazing! I definitely was drawn to some more than others.
I decided it would be fun to use such a new print for my giveaway prize today! I whipped up one of my favorite kitchen accessories! A dishmat! (teapot not included - sorry!)
And after taking these pictures - I think maybe I'll start calling it a teapot rug!
I use mine all the time for my pots to drip dry on. And when it's not covered with dishes, it just looks so pretty!
More lovely dots that I used on the reverse. I really think she makes the best dot prints. EVER.
The dishmat, teapot rug, placemat, centerpiece table topper, tray liner (use it for whatever you want!) measures about 15 x 24 inches, is lined with an terry cloth kitchen towel, has serged edges with an all over stipple quilting design.
I'm kind of sad to give it away - but I think I'm going to go buy more. In lieu of buying this, I have a bottle of liquid starch and some bookshelves that need some color.
I had fun making it - I hope you love it!
