Good Fortune Finish

Happy Spring Forward Day – to celebrate losing an hour this weekend, I added the borders to my Good Fortune quilt yesterday.

After staring at the quilt center on my design wall for several weeks, I decided that I really wasn’t excited about sewing all the pieced borders in the Bonnie Hunter’s instructions. So off to the quilt shop I went looking for the perfect border fabric. After many “almost, but not quite right” fabrics, I found this batik for the border.

This close up shows how the batik fabric accents the green turquoise stars while also pulling in the gold from the alternate blocks.

Now that Good Fortune is a completed top, I can concentrate on blocks for Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler. The goal is to make 31 blocks this month, however right now the total is 4. The good news is that March is a long month, so hopefully it will happen.
