sparkling weekends



quilt pattern - Sparkling Cider, available here
(i added an extra row to make it 80" square)




a fat quarter pack of this entire collection is plenty to make this quilt
plus you'll need about a yard of background fabric
- I used a Kaffe Fasset shot cotton - 







         quilting - good old-fashioned stippling, which makes a large quilt work fairly well on my regular 
sewing machine



next up - Hopscotch with Dream On by Urban Chiks  (also with the inspiration of My Precious Quiltalong)
