I had originally intended to quilt my Kate Spain Good Fortune quilt myself, but I had a slight miscalculation with my Mouse and Stars Baby Quilt. I had taped the mouse quilt to my floor, and then realized it wasn’t baby quilt sized. It was quite a bit bigger and all I had was baby quilt sized batting. Oops.
Taping down quilts in my house is a big to-do because I have to move all the tables, so I really didn’t want to have to redo it. The only piece of batting I had that was big enough was already being used in my Good Fortune quilt sandwich, but I hadn’t started quilting it, so I decided to steal it for the baby quilt.
After that, it seemed silly to do the quilting myself, so I sent it out with the I-Spy quilts to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting. As always it came back amazing!
