A quick glance... Wednesday WIP

A lot of of work - both real work-work and a volunteer job - left preciously little time to quilt this week. I've really only worked on one quilt this week. What looked like this last Wednesday…


now looks like this:


It's 'Sparkle Plenty' from Stephanie at Lofts Creations. Instant sparkle if you ask me....
I managed to piece the remaining pieces yesterday evening and the top is done. If I only had enough batting to continue tonight...




I cut the squares 7" and 6,5" and ended up with a large quilt at approximately 70"x70". I've used a lot of different green scraps and despite not being sure about the colors in the beginning this quilt has really grown on me. I feel a tingle of excitement every time I look at it. It's a simple and stunning layout.
