quilt monday

Thanx for all the birthday wishes; had a fabulous weekend. 

Earlier this year, I got intrigued by a quilt along; the Sparkle Quilt Along.
I picked up some fabric way back in February and it sat and waited. And waited. And waited a little more.
I finally sat down and started on the quilt. That's when I discovered that even though I had enough fat quarters, one of them was a white backed print and against the white background of the quilt; it wouldn't look right. This is what I came up with.


I made a smaller sparkle block using the leftover hsts from the bigger blocks. I think it worked out nicely.

My favorite part of this quilt? The quilting.


I quilted the whole quilt on the diagonal. And cross-hatched just the center square. 
I also debated about the binding. I couldn't find the white I had cut so I went with the grey. Of course as soon as I sewed the grey on, I found the white ;)


Love it.
