Craftsy and Me

10.21.2015

Last Spring, I was contacted by the Robert Kaufman company asking if I would be willing to share a quilt I designed with them so they could make a kit to sell on Craftsy. Of course I said YES!! 

The back story, In January of 2014, I participated in a blog hop organized by Madame Samm called, Wake Up to Kona Solids. If you look in my sidebar, the most popular post on my blog was from that blog hop. It was that quilt that caught the eye of the Robert Kaufman people. 

If you follow me on Instagram, this picture was posted in August when I was knee deep in trimming the half square triangles for the quilt they asked me to make for them and to test the pattern they wrote for it. 


After I finished the top, I sent it to their long arm quilter to have it quilted and photographed. I am still pinching myself! Aren't the photos amazing!!?

No, I am not famous and I never will be, but I am honored to have a quilt I designed featured on Craftsy and for a day or two, I think I will walk on air. =)

Here is the link to my quilt, Amy's Stars featuring Robert Kaufman Kona Solids. =) 

Have a happy Wednesday!!

  2. That is SO COOL!!!!! Congratulations. It is a wonderful pattern.

    On a side note, I think you will like Gooseberry by Vanessa Goertzen because it looks like it would coordinate nicely with Bonnie and Camille.

  7. I LOVE THE COLORS!
    Amy, this is epic. I am so proud to know you.
    (I think I have those sandals too by the way)
    I agree, this is a strikingly marvelous quilt. I want to make it
    and personally I am not crazy about pinwheel quilts (maybe it is because I have made too many of them, lol) This is gorgeous. I do love Kona

    As to being knee deep in trimming half-square triangles - your "knees" look a lot like feet to me, but then, what do I know? ;-)
