Kortney’s Quilt: Purple, Kate Spain, and Good Fortune


Last week, I finished this pretty little quilt for Kortney, my super awesome sister-in-law. She’s a big fan of purple, in case you couldn’t tell.


When I saw “Good Fortune” by the one and only Kate Spain, well, obviously I had to use it for Kortney’s quilt.

I backed it with Moda Bella Solid in aqua. The binding is some old purple Kona I had in my stash. No idea what color.


I let Kort choose how she wanted it quilted, and she was loving on the bubbles, so that’s what I did–along with a few wishbones, just for fun. Bubbles and Wishbones. Sounds like a band name.


This is a remake of a quilt I did last year for Nyah, remember? Only a little bigger and without borders.


Just a single layer cake, 1/4 yardish of white solid, some backing, binding, and batting, and BAM.


It has a little bit of machine applique on it, which I know you are all experts at now.


If you happen to only be only super-proficient at machine applique and want to become expert, of course go to my machine applique tutorial.


What did you work on last week? Or if you didn’t get a chance last week, what are you up to this week? I’ve got a bunch of longarming to do–ruler work and such. It’s going to be FUN!



PS Thanks, little brother (little? hah!) for being my quilt holder. You rock. Also, nice shoes.

    And she positively squealed when she saw it too. Kortney LOVED it! So did I and you’re lucky it arrived at it’s destination without being swiped. Beautiful work my dear.

    I love the purple in this line. I have some scraps of it to use :) I like the new look of your blog too. It must be blog makeover week. I’ve seen about four with new looks!
