My love for Kate Spain is never ending.

(That sounds a little obsessive doesn’t it?)

Well, whatever.  I can’t help it.

I mean look at these amazing colors!

Wonderful delicious prints.

Fabulous designs that just beg me to use them.

I knew I HAD to use Terrain.

And I knew I had to make something that would be fast!

Layer Cake + Charm packs = FAST

This top took me two sewing days to complete.

(There were a lot of days between day 1 and day 2.)

The pattern is on Moda Bake Shop.

And did you remember it was National Sewing Month during September?

Did you get a lot done?

Did you sew something fabulous? I want to see!

PS. Fully expect to see this quilt again once I get it back from the quilter. :-)

    I found this by looking through the layer cake “recipes” The sample they had was with one of Fig Tree & Co’s line….which was beautiful as well. :) I knew it was perfect for what I wanted b/c it went together so quickly and yet was big enough to be a nice sized quilt! I just LOVE MBS!!! (I also have a central park quilt…I don’t know if I’ve shared it here yet….)

  11. Yay! Thank you very much for showing your beautiful top! I am going to look for that pattern. BTW, would love to join you for your sewing day in November and meet you, but won’t be back in Tucson until the holidays. Spend part of my time in Portland, Oregon now. :) Wonderful quilting going on here :)
