Once again Picket Fence proves she is a very versatile pattern, 'cause she highlights all of Good Fortune's goodness!  

This quilt went together so quickly that I want to make another one!

Baby Picket Fence Quilt in Good Fortune {My February Goal!}

My One Monthly Goal for February 2016 is a baby Picket Fence quilt in Kate Spain's Good Fortune collection!  Picket Fence is the first pattern I wrote and is the best-selling of all my patterns by far!  This is a custom order through my Etsy shop, so I'd better have it completed in February!

I have two layer cakes but will only need part of one, so there will be plenty left to play with!  The blue is the binding, and the gray is the backing, though the backing may end up pieced in some manner.  This is the last of my Good Fortune yardage, and since I'll have lots of layer cake squares left, I'll keep my eye out for more yardage at a great price.  One advantage of not using brand-new collections right away and letting them age on the shelf is that yardage for backing is usually at a very reduced price by the time I get around to needing it!

Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday {a TGIFF Linky!} + a New Pattern!

Today I'm hosting Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, aka, TGIFF!  

My finish for this week is a lap size quilt in my new pattern, Love Multiplied, using Miss Kate fabric by Bonnie & Camille.  I released a tutorial for Love Multiplied in baby size a month ago and have been blown away by how many people have downloaded it.  I'm now releasing the full pattern in five sizes for those who want the math all figured out!  Here's to sitting down to sew and leaving the math behind!  

Love Multiplied is charm pack, fat quarter, and yardage friendly, so the math is done, no matter what form your stash is in!

My friend Shannon of The Flemings Nine tested the pattern for me.  I love her color choices!
Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Love Multiplied
  • Size:  54" x 69"
  • Fabric:  Miss Kate by Bonnie & Camille
  • Batting:  100% cotton
  • Quilting:  Allover medium meandering stitch in white polyester thread on Mrs.Singer, my antique 31-15 mounted on a long-arm quilting frame.
  • Backing:  Royal blue solid from Miss Kate line.
  • Binding:  Royal blue solid from Miss Kate line, double fold with mitered corners, attached by machine.
  • Value:  So very cheery!
