Kate Spain Grand Canal Give-a-Way

Earlier this week I received some news via email, that I am still excited to share with you. I won the Kate Spain Grand Canal Give-a-Way Prize. And, I am not usually one to win contests. 

There were many, many entries, as I can only imagine. To win this contest there were six questions everyone had to answer to be considered. One each day, about a photograph Kate was inspired by in Venice that helped her to create this new Spring Collection.

So if you are reading this, and are at Spring Quilt Market 2016 in Salt Lake City, UT., check out the rest of this blog post and Kate’s Collection. Go through all six days of her posts, so you can see all the fabrics in each colorway. Then go see The Grand Canal Collection at Moda.  

If you are not at market, and wish you were like me, enjoy this blog post, check out Kate’s, and hopefully you will be as inspired as I am to create whatever makes you happy.

I have two baby quilts, I must get finished. Then, I think I am going to make the pattern from this kit.

Below are the photos I took of the collection after it arrived at my home.

It’s was almost two years ago that we went to Rome, Florence and Ostuni.  Hhhmmmm, we missed Venice.  This collection makes me want to go!!
Have a great weekend!!
