Somehow I find myself gravitating constantly toward prints by Kate Spain. There's something about her fabric that is magically ethereal and yet so friendly at the same time. When I first saw pictures of her new Good Fortune line, I knew that I desperately wanted to make something with it. I originally planned to do a more complex design for the quilt with a lot more cutting, but I just couldn't bear to cut these charm squares any smaller. I wanted the prints to shine as they were. Looking at the quilt top, it reminds me of a tiled pool with ripples of water running down the middle.
The back is plain except for one square that I added at the last minute with embroidered initials and the year.
I'm excited to put this in the mail for a friend of mine.
