Winter Sparkle!

  Here we go!

This is a picture of why I couldn't spring for one of the three gorgeous bundles at Sew Lux Fabric!

I had just ordered these charm packs the very day before I learned of the Challenge!
Hubby brought them home from town the very day I pieced it, December 10th!

Chrissy's pallette was the only one I could come close to matching...
One stray charm of oval elements and my new Charley Harper gold, and my bundle was complete!

This turned out to be a bit tricky without the pattern to go by!

I first saw this pattern at first sight!

look how sweet the backing!

single layer binding...thank you for the reminder Amanda Jean!

I seriously couldn't love this little "sparkler" any more than I do!!!

"Winter Sparkle"
21.5" x 21.5"
some very favorite fabrics:
 pearl bracelets,
 squared elements,
 honeysuckle trellis,
 desert daydreams, 
Charley Harper,
 DS quilts
For the back, after much auditioning, I went with Bonnie & Camille's Happy-Go-Lucky print. It is my first and only B&C, and so appropriate with Camille's sweet Round and Round pattern :) 

It was bit overcast today for picture purposes, but we made do...and got a truckload of firewood while we were at it!

I am just so happy the three Ladies, Sarah, Chrissy and Lee saw fit to invite me (and everyone) to join in on their fun!!!  I really had a blast with the fabrics and a pattern that otherwise would probably have never been done!!!  I would do this again, anytime!
Thank you, thank you!!!

Chrissy picked 'em! The colors, I mean :)

This certainly does sparkle. A great way to use friendship stars, the colours are lovely together.

This is a super sweet finish. I only saw the sew lux challenge today, I am crazily thinking I might join in!

Go for it!!! :)

Sarah, how cute to just make one of the Sparkle circles for a mini quilt. I just love your fabrics and especially like the backing. I'm using some of the exact print as backing on my grand daughters quilt now!
