Kate Spain Baby Quilt

This post is a long time coming. I actually cannot believe that I cut out the squares for this quilt when I was still living in Boston. I had the BMQG at my house for a sew-in one of the lasts nights we were in Boston, and I cut the squares that night.

I sewed the basic squares together both at Jake’s parent’s house (when we were temporarily staying with them for 2 weeks) and a at Sewing Summit— in OCTOBER. It’s amazing to think that this quilt has been put together in so many places over such a long period of time.

The fabric in the quilt is Kate Spain Fandango. When I started quilting last year this is one of the first fat quarter sets that I bought. I bought it to make a quilt for a girlfriend that didn’t know if she was going to have a boy or a girl. And almost a year later, I still love the fabrics (she had a girl).

I think my style is changing a little bit over the past year. I find myself being drawn to quilts with mostly solids. Which kind of makes me sad because it’s really fun to buy prints (Although I still have plenty of prints in my stash to use up…)

Here’s the back of the quilt, beautiful fabric.

I’ve really liked the look of striped binding.

I did more traditional quilting so I wouldn’t disturb the beautiful prints. I quilted along the edge of all the fabrics, which also created a diamond shape in the center of each group.

And there she is!

  1. It’s so beautiful! Awesome work! Yes, it took a long time, but well worth the wait, just like a lot of other things in life, right? 🙂

  2. Don’t you just love Kate Spain? I made a quilt earlier this year out of her “Good Fortune” line. I have a whole set of fat quarters for her Verna line and now, I’ve gotten hooked on her Terrain series. I love to see what you make, it’s inspiring.
