I love this quilt, the fabrics and the fun time I had making the log cabin squares. A lot of the fabric is by Amy Butler who is a very popular fabric designer. I like her older prints better than her newer ones. I think she was original and fun. Now, her fabric is costly. Where it used to be a find, to come across her fabric, it is now common. She mixes colors that are strange. She always did and it was fun and bold. Now, there are lots of copycat prints that are beautiful, some are even more beautiful than the overpriced Amy Butler fabrics.
Plus, the Amy Butler patterns sell for over $10 for each one. Unlike traditional McCalls or Butterick patterns that you can get more than one style for one pattern, Amy Butler's patterns are for 1 and 1 only item-- one bag, one purse, one hat, etc.
And it doesn't help that the woman at the fabric counter was an Amy Butler groupie. I like fabric or I don't like it, but I don't automatically like it because of the celebrity who produces it... I guess I am just strange.
