I bought all of the sparkle threads a long time ago and - finally took the time to learn how to use it.

I made these two projects as small quilts for people who participated in the fund raiser I did.

One person asked for a quilt made from neutral tones. She wanted something contemporary and something that looked like I made it - just in neutral tones. Here is what she got - she loves it.



And then, another lady wanted a smaller table decoration - she gave me some color ideas and said - sparkle, sparkle, sparkle.

Amazing! I hope that one of these days you will do videos of the quilting. You are FEARLESS! I love those. Especially the deco quilting on the second one! :)

Very different and interesting. What method did you use to do the quilting on the second one. It almost looks like couching. You are so creative!!
