Fandango, baby!

I think I was a bit late to the Kate Spain party, but that’s ok. A few months ago I picked up a Fandango charm pack on a whim. After I had a chance to thumb through the stack of prints, I realized how much I like this line. So when I found more charm packs in Seattle, I bought another one. And as much as I wanted to keep these pretty pieces all to myself, I thought they would make a great baby girl quilt.

 Simple patchwork. I had a yard of 1 print from the line-the perfect amount for a border and binding!
 Snow!
 To balance the simple pathwork, I did some heavy fmq in a paisley pattern. Not perfect, but I’m ok with the result.
 Another shot of the quilting on the back.
I even machine-bound this one. Sssshhhh, don’t tell the quilt police!
The details:
Top and binding are Fandango
Backing is Kona in pale flesh
Quilted in an all over paisley design, which took me about 4 hours to complete!
Approximately 43″ x 52″
Bound entirely by machine (I feel like I need to say that twice for some reason!)
I sent this quit off to an old grade school friend who is expecting her 3rd baby, and her 2nd girl. I hope she likes it! I gave her quilts for her first 2 children as well, but I think this one is my favorite. πŸ™‚

  1. This is one of my all time favourite fabric lines. I have just used the absolute last of mine, and made blocks for the Quilts for Queensland. It was hard to give away, and I was happy with how the fabrics just sung. Your quilt is lovely and the quilting gorgeous.

  2. Love your quilting! It looks great! Where did you get those wonderful tags?? Thanks for linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday and have a great week!
