Her birthday is on January 31st, but we agreed I would give it to her in person. That gave me a little more time and I really needed it! I sewed on the last of the binding yesterday afternoon, with her sitting next to me...
The last time she came to visit in December, she fell in love with this quilt. I told her I would give her one for her birthday and let her pick some fabric from my stash. She especially liked that brown Amy Butler print, the flowers from Momo's Wonderland line and the greenish print from Tula Pink's Parisville. For the neutral, she wanted to have Kona Ash. I added some more fabric to the mix and wanted to get to work when I came across Elisabeth Hartmann's sparkle punch quilt. Lucky me that she posted a tutorial! I new right away this was the right pattern for my project.
The only thing that I did differently is the back, but that was more of an accident.
I had ordered enough fabric to make the back as in the tutorial, but then I needed some red for another project and cut into the one intended for this quilt. So I ended up with not enough and had to improvise.
I'm linking up with the Febuary Finishes Linky Party and with Megan from Canoe Ridge Creations!
