As I struggle to finish Mocha Trail, it sure feels good to blog about one of my all time favorite quilts, Madeline's Good Fortune.
I combined two Schnibbles patterns by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company to make this quilt, the center is Good Fortune and the surrounding stars are super sized blocks from Madeline.
I got this quilt back from the quilter in September, but up until this last weekend, I just couldn't get good pictures of the fabulous quilting job on this quilt. A few extra hands and the right sun was all I needed.
The front is all French General, I used Rouenneries and Rural Jardin.
Here's the back, I chose the toile print from Rural Jardin and am happy with how it looks.
The quilting is a custom job with lots of feathers, wreaths, and outlining. I could not be happier with it.
I'm sure an all over feather pattern would have worked, but I plan to use this quilt on my bed, love how this one of a kind top turned out, and decided a custom job was worth the extra cost.
I've even already washed this quilt to bring out its quilty goodness.
The quilt pattern in this border is called Eggs in a Basket, it was new to me but I think it fits the theme and space perfectly.
A couple of folks asked me for some fabric requirements after I finished piecing this top. I've looked through my notes, and for a king size quilt like this, I would estimate you would need 3 1/2 yards for the outer border, 2 3/4 yards of assorted reds, 2 3/4 yards of assorted gray's and 1 1/2 yards assorted background prints.
This quilt finished at 108" X 108" and has approximately 1,084 pieces.
