Good Fortune Baby 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!

Oops, I totally forgot about Finished or Not Friday!  Some secret pattern designing and sewing have taken over every brain cell; that's my excuse!

My Finish is a patchwork baby quilt in Good Fortune by Kate Spain.


This quilt was sewn and quilted several months ago, but I found nothing in the stash that matched for binding, so there it sat.  Somehow, a fabric came through the door {cough, cough} during a stash-building spree that just happened to match.


The backing was inspired by Shannon of The Flemings Nine, the master of pieced backings.


This quilt will be for sale in my Etsy shop as soon as my imaginary fairy helper gets it there.

Quilt Stats:

Pattern:  10" squares patchwork
Size:  38" x 47"
Fabric:  Good Fortune by Kate Spain
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 cotton/poly
Quilting:  Orbit Chevron on Gratitude
Backing:  Fun polka dots, probably Riley Blake


Last Week's Feature!


We had a huge increase in the views of your links this past week!  Continue sharing the party in your posts!  It's to your own advantage to let others know about this linkup as you will have more visitors.

Preeti's Esmeralda is stunning, and she wrote the pattern for free!


Shannon's Springtime Patchwork shows that sometimes simple is the best.  It caught many eyes this past week.


If you want your quilt featured here next week, be sure to put a link back to this post in your post or sidebar, or tag @busyhandsquilts on Instagram, AND link directly to your blog post so I don't have to hunt it down.

Today's Daily Deal at the Fat Quarter Shop is a steal on The Good Life jelly roll!  A great day to add a little Bonnie & Camille love to the stash!
