Good Fortune Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a lap size patchwork quilt in Good Fortune.  This is the last of this collection in my stash.  I am beginning to see shelves in my fabric closet again!

The pictures were taken on what hopefully wasn't the last sunny day until spring.  😨  It's really gray here in the winter which makes it difficult to take pictures of quilts.  

Quilt Stats:

Pattern:  Big ol' squares.
Size:  47" x 57"
Fabric:  Good Fortune by Kate Spain
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 cotton/poly
Quilting:  Diagonal plaid bias on Gratitude.

This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

I do like the quilting on this quilt, it's so effective, especially on the diagonal, lovely.

Wonderful that you are using your stash! Nice fast quilt.

Using squares from one collection really makes for a fab patchwork quilt! Love the quilting. said...

Lovely. Good Fortune is my favorite collection of all time! Seriously, I just reordered some yardage to stretch it in my work as long as possible. I think you made a wonderful choice to use the fabrics charm-size fairly large to show off the gorgeous prints. I was so happy to see this collection on your site. What a great quilt and one that you must keep for yourself. said...

Actually, from your measurements, it looks like i'm wrong and it's not charm but cake layer sizes. Even better! said...

I love making quilts with just squares especially if using a fabric collection. I have a bundle of a Lila Asbury line that I've been wanting to make something with and since it's a big print, I don't want to chop it up. Your quilt has given me the inspiration to make a one patch quilt but I'll have to wait until next year so I can finish up some projects for this year. As always, your quilting is wonderful.

Beautiful quilt -those fabrics are lovely, no wonder you have enjoyed using them. If you are like me then it won't take long to cover fill up those shelves again LOL!

The quilt is lovely. The large squares really show off the fabric.
You're a brave woman. I have yards of Good Fortune in my "special" fabric cabinet. I can't bare to cut into it. I met Kate Spain at a quilting retreat in CT. She is really nice and has a great sense of humor. She even laughed when I told her I planned to be buried with my trove of Good Fortune. Of course, she backed away from me very slowly.
