Button Up

I’ve had a chicken-scratch drawing in my notebook for 2 years and it finally turned into this quilt…Button Up!
I used a few prints from the Robert Kaufman line Botanics with some coordinating solids, and a couple of Kaffe Fassett polka dots mixed in.  Kathy did the quilting (my shoulders thank her!) and the back and binding are both Botanics prints (all from Pink Chalk Fabrics).

Taking photos of quilts with 3 little photo-bombers in the house is nearly impossible!
This pattern is available in my pattern shop via PDF or Paper (pre-order..I’ll get these in a few days). 
Thank you for all the football quilt love!  I’ll admit I was worried to show you guys that one since it’s a little out of my box…so I’m relieved you like it as much as I do!

    You are a genius, really! Such cute pattern, it makes me want to sew it immediately. Bright colors and sumple lines are the best.

    this is so very colourful, I have discovered since I started my quilting journey all colours work together, would never have dreamt of using orange and pink together before but it is in my latest project

    You make the best quilts!! I subscribed to the magazine you were featured in just to get that issue. My first issue was 2 issues past that! I called and it was too late to get the back one. I may have to order off Amazon but just wondered if you will be releasing the pattern in your shop at any point?
