She makes adorable Zakka goodies and her book is filled with fun projects. Kerry kicked off the tour with a great interview with Amy here.
I had so much fun deciding which project to start with and finally decided to make the fabric bucket.
Instead of using one single fabric for the outside, I made my outside panel using the Quilt As You Go method.
I picked the medium size and it's perfect for holding scraps on my cutting table.
I LOVE how it turned out (well, with one exception)....
As I was making my quilt as you go panel, I decided to use some of my hoarded Uptown birds. And I remember thinking to myself...make sure you put the birds right side up when you sew the bottom on.
And of course I DID NOT do that - lol (and I didn't notice until I had already attached the lining).
Ha ha - guess it'll just give me a laugh whenever I see it.
I can't wait to make the bigger version - you can use them for everything and they are such a great size!
How cute would a bucket be (along with some goodies) for a baby shower present?
There are tons of cute projects in the book and guess what?
I get to give one away to one of you!
