Amanada Brown – Janome Educator

Sewing wasn’t always a part of Amanda’s career path but when she was expecting her first child and decided to make a blanket, her whole world changed. After falling in love with a quilt in the local sewing store, Amanda signed up for her first quilt class and has never looked back. In 2011 she started Fabric Heart, a custom quilt company, and in 2018 founded the Canadian Modern Quilt Collective. Amanda is an enthusiastic teacher and loves sharing all her sewing knowledge!

Take one class in a technique repeat the block and make a quilt or take the entire series of nine classes and complete a sampler quilt.

Petite Butterflies

Who can resist a free pattern, especially one as cute as this one? We presented this sweet pattern at a recent Cake Therapy, to a great response. This quilt can be made any size depending on how many butterflies you make. As so many of my favourite patterns, it looks more complicated than it is. You can use either a co-ordinated colour palette or a create a scrappy look. It takes a little organizing, but all straight sewing to make these great little butterflies.
