Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! My Amy Butler Apron Quilt

Bloggers’ Quilt Festival! My Amy Butler Apron Quilt

This is my first time joining the Bloggers’ Quilt Festival!  Check out Amy’s Creative Side for all the details.  There are so many awesome quilters out there!  Thanks for sharing!

This is one of those projects that starts as something else when you buy the fabric!  I bought this great Amy Butler fabric to make a reversible apron but when I came home from the store and read the apron pattern….well, the fabric went into the stash!  What was I thinking!  Years later, after getting a tumbler template, I cut up all that apron fabric and this quilt was born!  Using my design floor, I decided on this arrangement.  I challenged myself to leave the edges and this is my first attempt at a shaped border.

It  measures 63″ x 81″, so I think it makes a much better quilt than apron!



Thanks for looking!  And just keep stitching!

  1. Nice job on your would be apron fabric turned into quilted beauty! I love the die cuts for a tumbler too. Mine isn’t quite a quilt yet, though.

  2. Can’t tell you how much I love your quilt! 🙂
    It makes me smile. Ok, I love tumbler quilts, but oh, the colours…
    Just right!
