Park Fountain necklace

As I have been sitting at my sewing machine these past few weeks my eye has kept drifting to the yard of Amy Butler Park Fountains print (from the Midwest Modern 2 collection) on the shelf in the corner. It's been sitting in my cabinet for a while, actually, as it was one of my first 'fancy quilting fabric' purchases back in November when I bought (other AB) fabric to make a yoga mat bag. I bought it with no particular project in mind but simply because I love Amy Butler fabric and the colors are two of my favorites, especially together.

I saw this necklace online a while back and have been thinking about it ever since. I finally decided to make one, and I must say -- really fun. I will be making more, methinks. The scale of the pattern on the fabric worked beautifully with the size of bead I used, and I had the perfect light gray grosgrain ribbon to use as a tie.

This one is off to a good home, but I might make myself one just like it!
