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!

    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!
