Today’s podcast guest is Amy Butler. As an artist, fabric designer for Free Spirit Fabrics, teacher, pattern designer, author and wife, Amy is one of the leaders and community builders in the modern quilt industry. People who might not have connected with traditional quilting, saw her fabric and realized there were other options. After meeting Amy, others found themselves engulfed in her compassion and interest in people. Regardless of how Amy might connect with someone, that bonding connection has contributed to a generation of adoring fans and supporters. There is a deeper passion and thoughtfulness to Amy’s personal and professional work. As an artist, quilt and fabric designer, teacher, author, and wife, I consider her to be one of the leaders and community builders in the modern quilt movement. During our conversation, we delve into her work style, what motivates her work, how she met her husband and best friend, her decision to start Blossom Magazine and more.

At The Confident Stitch, you’ll also find patterns, notions, and everything else you need to feel empowered expressing yourself through fabric. You can find their website at theconfidentstitch.com or @theconfidentstitch on Instagram. I love seeing what they have made in one of their classes and using their fabrics!
