Whew, July has been a busy, busy month.
I spent the first part of the month completing this quilt.
I started with a layer cake a few weeks ago.
I had been saving a Kate Spain Fandango
layer cake to make a quilt for our family room.
We don't have any quilts in our home that I've made,
so as I headed into my summer work break
I was anxious to decide upon a pattern and get sewing.
I have always been fascinated
with kaleidoscope quilts and wanted to try one.
Fandango seemed perfect.
The kaleidoscope has large enough pieces to
really show off the beautiful prints of this fabric line.
The dark brown really set off the prints and made the colors pop.
As I began sewing,
I realized that this quilt was really meant to be
my youngest daughter's quilt.

You can't really see from this photo,
but the three green arrows point to
writing written on the pink fabric serving as my label
and message for my daughter.
Fandango, Kona Brown, kaleidoscope.....pure perfection to me.
I believe this is probably my favorite
quilt I've made to date. It's not only beautiful,
but special to both my daughter and me.
I love it!
