(I'm on the) Amy Butler Softwares CD!

{psssst ... if you're here for the giveaway, it's in my last post! oh, and welcome!}

Lots of great quilt-related stuff going on around the Quilt Dad household these days ... not the least of which is the complimentary copy of the new Amy Butler Softwares package that I received recently from the nice folks at the Electric Quilt Company.

Why complimentary, you might ask?

BECAUSE I'M ON THE CD!!

I'm on Amy Butler's CD!

That's right! See my name up there?? Shortly before the holidays, I received an email from Sarah at the Electric Quilt Company telling me a bit about the new product and asking if I'd be interested in submitting some items for the inspiration gallery included on the CD.

Well, heck yeah!

If any of you read the first few posts I ever wrote on this blog, you might remember that Amy Butler -- through her fabrics and patterns -- played a huge role in my first getting interested in sewing and quilting at all. So it was a really huge honor to be invited to play a small role in the launch of this product.

I've only just started poking around the program itself, but it already looks like it is well worth the $29 it costs to purchase it. There is amazing photography and inspiration throughout and, in addition to the user-submitted projects in the gallery, there are full patterns for tons of projects from quilts to bags to items for the home. I can definitely see myself making several projects from this CD.

Thanks again, EQ!

  7. Nice! We've been drooling over that software here at work.

    I found your blog through the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day, and I must say that you have great taste! (Or at least the same taste as me, which is what it really comes down to, right?)

    Keep up the gorgeous work!
