Today we are excited to introduce you to Amanda Castor!
Amanda Castor is a quilt designer and founder of Material Girl Quilts. She loves to sew, craft and most importantly, quilt. Her style is inspired by traditional quilts with a modern flair. Fresh patterns and colors are what makes her heart sing. Amanda enjoys sharing handmade items and ideas with others and hopes to never stop finding new things to create. In her free time, Amanda enjoys hanging out with her husband, son and lovable boxer pup. You can learn more about Amanda and her designs at Material Girl Quilts or on Instagram @materialgirlquilts.
Amanda’s newest fabric collection, Fairy Edith, is filled with fairy magic – from delicate florals and miniature party lights to sparkly fairies flying through the night sky.
The Fairy Edith fabrics look absolutely enchanting in this little child’s dress. The lovely denim blue Wildflower print paired with the aqua bodice creates a truly beautiful timeless piece.
You can see how these fabrics are equally beautiful in this SEEING STARS quilt. LOVE!
You’ll find Amanda on Instagram @materialgirlquilts, where her feed is curated with loads of project ideas and inspiration!
In order to get to know Amanda better, we gave her a list of words in alphabetical order to which she could give any reply that came to mind. Enjoy this fun and refreshing look at life from Amanda’s unique perspective!
