Daisy Chain by Amy Butler

Amy Butler makes her first appearance on the Jolly Jabber with the launch of Daisy Chain, her richly hued collection of large contemporary floral prints. The possibilities are great for a modern household, especially with all the different colorways available, from navy blue to sunset pink! Bags, quilts, clothes...tell us what you're going to do with Daisy Chain! Amy lets loose on all the exciting things she's been creating...be prepared for...well, everything!

My studio has been hoppin' this summer! So many exciting launches and loads of new product development in the works.

I love summer, especially the peak of the season, July through September. That's when my gardens explode and I love watching the drama unfold before my eyes, it's really incredible. I was able to extend my "August experience" this year with the launch of my newest home decor collection of prints for Rowan, August Fields.

Here's a shot of my friend Andrew "capturing" Jesse in a mod August Fields dress! The field and the day were perfect for the shoot! Jesse is also holding two new Weekender Travel Bags made out of AF.

The collection is made up of four diverse color stories celebrating the inspiration of gardens and wild fields in high season. Everything peaks in August! Poetic combinations of elegant natural prints and modern textures make it easy to mix and match designs for your next home dec or fashion project. Here's a sneak peak below with some fun shots of my AF photo shoot last weekend at my friend Brian's house! I'm using AF for everything! Bedding, pillows, bags, (of course right?!) and clothing.

Here's my AF bedroom! The duvet cover will be a free pattern on my web site soon! YUM!

Another long awaited addition to my fabric mix has also launched this summer! Amy Butler Solids. The material is beautifully woven with a gorgeous feel, my solids come in both home dec and quilting weights to coordinate with all of my print collections with Rowan. The pretty colors will enhance and compliment any project and are sure to stir your creative passions! I have a fun mix of projects on my web site that feature both the home dec and quilting weight collections. I also have a great free quilt pattern you can try... I named the quilt after my friend Thea, she's a wild creative fire! I just love her. If you're looking for another NEW free quilt pattern, check out my Mid Mod Quilt.

Here's a fun snap with my new Daisy Chain fabric featured in the quilt! I'll have tons of inspirado on my web site soon. Daisy Chain looks incredible in combo with August Fields!

Here's a few more sneak peeks at my new quilting collection Daisy Chain. The collection is filled with earthy chic prints with a modern folk feel that harmonize in the four zen like color palettes. These romantic prints are perfect for fashion, home dec or quilting projects.

This is a pretty shot I captured featuring the back of my NEW Daisy Chain quilt pattern. I love the back of my quilt as much as the front!

I told ya I have a lot of fun projects and books releasing this season! I love my new Little Stitches sewing book! It's lavishly illustrated and inside you'll find charming and contemporary projects for the nursery, baby wear, soft toys, and many more surprises! The projects are designed for babies 0-12 months and their mothers, featuring beautiful photos of the finished designs by our friend Colin McGuire. It was fun to produce these little treasures, and I think you'll find many projects in here for all the wee ones in your world.

Here are a couple of my favorite projects...the Cheeky Monkey Laundry Bag and the Sleepy Snail with removable Shell Pillow. The other detail I love about the book is that I rated the projects by difficulty level so you can ease right into a project that's perfect for you. This is a keeper! A great book to keep on hand for gift giving and celebrating wee ones coming into your world!

One very exciting development is my new dinnerware collection called VINTAGE BOTANICA for MIKASA. It was so much fun to bring my designs to a brand new medium. The pattern is inspired by one of my " Belle " prints. Like my fabrics, its all about layering the colors, shapes and patterns ! I love the modern shapes combined with the vintage colors and familiar motifs.

Phew! That's a lot of creative LOVE! I hope you enjoyed my sneak peeks and fun introductions! It's great connecting with everyone! You all have a wonderful Fall and I'll see ya soon!

Peace and Joy
