Lap Quilt in Amy Butler Lark

Amy Butler Lark Lap Quilt
Amy Butler's Lark collection of fabrics are gorgeous prints that I didn't want to cut up into small pieces, so I decided to again use Bohemian Charm from Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation as inspiration for this quilt.  This pattern is quickly becoming my go-to pattern for fabrics with large, bold prints.

All fabrics, including the quilt top, backing, and binding, are Amy Butler Lark prints.  I ♥ how they play together in this quilt!  If only you could see how stunning the fabrics are in person; pictures just don't tell the whole story.  I purchased Lark from Craftsy on an amazing sale, and it is still in stock! Because I love supporting fellow Etsians, I also purchased a few more coordinates and larger pieces for backing on Etsy.

The binding is a black and white print from the collection.

Dottie Dot Quilt in Progress

Bright Dot Fabric
I have been wanting to work with these fabrics for months, but I couldn't figure out what to do with them.  I finally found the perfect pattern!  I was inspired by this quilt at Exuberant Color which led me to this free pattern!  This fabric is totally different than what's shown in the quilt and the pattern, but it just clicked in my mind when I saw the pattern layout.  Tonight I pressed all the fabrics so they're ready to be cut into squares when I get the chance.

Shh, I have a secret to tell you!  These fabrics are from the Craftsy 2013 Block of the Month Kit I purchased last year!  Can you believe I am not using the kit for the project?  {GASP!}

I am also going to be working with this stack of Amy Butler Lark prints as soon as the yardage I ordered arrives.  It's 46% off at Craftsy right now!  I'll use the pattern Bohemian Charm by Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation again because it spotlights large prints without cutting them down too small.  This quilt is likely a graduation present for my niece, if it seems to suit her after it is finished.  I'd like to give her Dottie Dot, but I'm told she doesn't like pink!  I ♥ pink!
And Don't Forget!!
