Kate Spain "Joy" quilt ~ finished!

The Kate Spain "Joy" plus quilt is finished, washed, photographed, and up in the shop!  This is just a straight forward plus design, with the addition of lots of negative space.  I like that the Christmas fabrics are then not so overwhelming, and the Kona Ash softens it up nicely I think.  I added a little strip of pieced binding, just for fun!  This quilt finishes at 43" x 56".





I will be linking up with Finish it up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts

It looks great! How do you make your quilting lines so even? Do you use a walking foot and quilting bar?

Love the Christmas quilt. I bought a little of those fabrics too - just couldn't resist. Love the aprons in your header also. Do you have pattern information for those?

Karen H said...

I love the quilt - I have vowed that I will no longer buy Christmas fabric, as it puts me under too much pressure to finish a project. I may have to reconsider this... :) It's lovely!

It's beautiful. I keep thinking I should make myself a holiday quilt, but I haven't yet moved forward with that project. The constant problem of putting things for myself on the back burner!

Jennie said...

I love it with the grey -- beautiful quilt.

I love it! Wonderful work. I just started my own (non Christmas) plus quilt, and yours makes me want to make another Christmas version. I just love this design. And Kate Spain is my favorite fabric designer like ever.

Everything about this quilt is so fresh and fun! I love the soothing gray background and the layout. And the patch of scrappy binding is so fun! Great job!!

Franziska said...

what a great idea. A non christmassy pattern with christmas fabric - wonderful. Can imagine that as a pillow for me. Thanks for sharing.
