Sparkle Quilt Along - Finish and Linky Party!

Thursday, February 23, 2012

This post is part of the Sparkle Quilt Along. For more information see here.
Welcome to the final week of the Sparkle Quilt Along, hosted by Megan of Canoe Ridge Creations and myself! Today I'm going to share my finished mini quilt and give you a chance to link up your finished quilts!

When I was choosing fabrics for my mini quilt, I worked backwards, choosing the binding fabric first and then from there chose the sparkle fabrics.   It can be hard to choose binding that coordinates with all your prints, so why not try choosing it first! I think it worked out really well!

Sparkles: A Day in the Life by Mummysam, The Woodlands by Khristian A Howell, Castle Peeps by Lizzy House, Tailor Made by Cosmo Cricket. Background: Kona White. Binding: Follow your Imagination by Prince Charming.

For backing I was originally going to use the same fabric as the binding, but I didn't end up having quite enough. So I mimicked the stripey binding fabric by using strips of coordinating solids from my stash.  I actually quite like how it turned out!

I quilted my mini quilt with my signature doodle loops.  I just can't get away from them! They're second nature for me, and so quick! Plus they're sort of whimsical, which definitely went with the fabrics I used!

Now it's your turn to share your quilts! Link them up! :)

Thank you for quilting along with us, it was a lot of fun! Please continue to add your photos to the Sparkle Quilt Along Flickr Group, we love seeing your progress!

Happy Sewing!
