Alyce has invited me to join in on the Kate Spain blog hop. Kate Spain is not only one of the nicest people in the world but is bursting with creativity and imagination, notably reflected in her beautiful designs.
Over the years Kate has designed the following fabric collections :
Verna , 12 Days of Christmas, Fandango , Central Park, Flurry, Terrain, Good Fortune, Serenade, Joy, Cuzco, Honey Honey, In from the Cold and soon to be released – Sunnyside
I have bought everyone of Kate’s collections and over the years have made and gave away many quilts using these fabrics. I still have a stash of pre-cuts of my favourites, like Central Park, that I cannot seem to part with.
This is my Snowflake quilt from the book Sweet Celebrations. I love the fresh blue Kate used with her Christmas collection – Flurry – as well as the crisp spring greens and vibrant reds.
One of my first Moda Bake Shop recipes was the Fandango Clams quilt.
Fandango had an almost seaside feel with it’s crisp turquoise, and warm yellow, oranges and a splash of purple.
String quilt made with Bella solids and Good Fortune. A present for the teacher in 2011.
The gorgeous cushion below was made by Danielle with a Jelly Roll of Serenade I sent to her. The colours are reminiscent of Autumn with their greys, dusky blues, oranges and warm browns and a drop of purple.
To celebrate ‘All things Kate’, I am giving one lucky blogger the chance to win a Serenade Layer Cake.
To enter, leave a comment on this blog using the names of some of Kate’s collections. For example,
‘Verna and I went for a walk in Central park. We met a man whose sweet Seranade made us do the Fandango’
Good luck and the winner will be drawn 30th June 2013.
