Piece Keeping {Amy Butler’s Tribal Cuffs}

July 17, 2016

I was lucky enough to meet Amy Butler a couple of years ago at Anna Maria Horner’s Craft South in Nashville. Amy radiates kindness, creativity and love.  She’s a special person who was born to inspire others, and talking to her for a few minutes makes you understand that our creativity can unlock a world of peace, balance and joy.

So it goes without saying that I am elated that Chronicle Books invited me to host the blog tour for Amy Butler’s new book – Piece Keeping.  If you’re visiting my site today for the first time, welcome!  I hope you find some of how-to posts and videos you like, and stick around.  For those of you whom I haven’t met yet, you can read a little more about my journey HERE.

Piece Keeping is a beautiful book, filled with creative, bohemian-inspired patchwork projects; it is a feast for the eyes.

This summer, I’ve been working long hours with my creative team, preparing to go to print on the 2017 Quilter’s Planner.  This has been a thrilling and energizing experience, but it also means that I have less time to dedicate to the growing piles in my sewing room.  I know this is a short-term challenge, so I’m just patiently allowing my list of Must-Make Projects to grow.

At the top of my list now?

Amy’s Tribal Cuffs.

My always fashionable, artistic, free-spirited daughter Sophie borrowed Piece Keeping to flip through the pages while I made dinner a couple weeks ago.  She stopped at the page featuring the Tribal Cuffs and yelled, “Mom!”  “We HAVE to make these!!”

These chic, bohemian, paper -pieced cuffs fall right into the type of sewing I love.  Small, unique, and beautiful.  I love applying my quilting skills to craft sewing projects that are outside the norm.  2016 has been the year of honing my paper-piecing skills, so this project will fit right in with my goals for myself (and it is Sophie-approved, so I’m all over it).
