Amy Butler Charm Quilt

I just finished this Amy Butler Charm Quilt from her free pattern online. It was easy. I used a lot of Amy Butler Love fabrics as well as Nigella, Daisy Chain, and Belle. I also added fabrics such as Tina Givens and Henry Alexander.

The idea was for me to use up all of my scraps so I cut 80 squares and placed them in no particular order.

 The football shapes were then appliqued and quilted. It came out well.

I added a 5" border. The backing was also from Amy Butler's Love line. My husband does a good job holding it up, doesn't he? It ended up being 60" x 60".  The binding is Amy Butler Sunspots.  I absolutely hate to hand stitch the binding so I followed this tutorial to machine stitch it. I doubled up on the batting so it's nice and thick. It's the perfect size to give to my Mother who is always cold. Happy Birthday Mom!
