AHA Moment

I received these beautiful fabrics for Christmas from my sweet sister-in-law. As much as I love Moda, I also love the work of Amy Butler. For months and months I would pull them out, unfold them, line them up, and look at them. I just couldn't decide what to do with them. Most of Amy Butler's fabrics are very bold colors and have larger patterns that's why I have a hard time cutting them up in to tiny pieces. I feel like I want to keep them as is and look at them as a work of art.

I have been going back and forth between framing them, making a bag, or making a wall hanging. Then, all of a sudden an idea came to me today! Do you ever get that light bulb moment? I got that, "Aha!" moment.

Well, it is late tonight I will not start cutting right now, but hopefully, I will be able to share what I came up with sometime next week.

If you haven't entered in to my free give away, don't forget to do so. Have a nice Sunday everyone!


  1. I have a really hard time deciding and cutting beautiful fabric as well. I will be eager to see what you came up with!

  2. I can't wait to see what you came up with. I also love the big bold Amy Butler prints (as well as anything Moda)...Your designs are always can't wait!

  3. I loved this fabric! I can't wait to see what you create!

  4. I always have a hard time cutting up my favorite fabrics.

    I have a non-related question...
    Can't find your e-mail address or I would just e-mail you.

    I am a second generation Japanese, here in Utah and am getting sad that my kids know nothing of their Japanese heritage. I always thought that I would teach my kids but once they got here, things were busier than I realized and I never seem to fit it in.

    Do you have any ideas for me?

    My e-mail is
    and my blog is

    Thank you so much!

  5. I love the fabric! It is so beautiful!!! Just like you, lady! Can't wait to see what you do with it!
