Sparkle Quilt Top Finished


I pushed through this weekend and finished my Sparkle quilt top. I had the blocks completed last week, then it was "just" adding sashing and borders. Definitely not my favorite part of the quilting process!! I do like how it turned out though, even with its little wrinkles and puckers here and there. It measures in at about 55"x55", though I haven't actually taken a tape measure to it.


Thanks to Megan and Jeni for such a fun design. :)

Wow, you didn't waste any time finishing this! I may have started early, but am still only 4 blocks in. lol
My least favourite part has been sewing the hst's to the center square, oh, there is puckering! I am afraid to do the sashing - I really don't add sashing to most of my quilts...hope I keep my points!
