Description

Yet another UFO... I had some of the blocks assembled from 5" charms and used this as a leader/ender project in September.  I really love this color palette - I must have been inspired by a quilt I saw back then.

I laid the blocks out on my design wall in 2 different layouts and asked for input on my blog... while I liked both layouts I ended up choosing layout 1 because to me it just sparkles (hence the name!). I'd like to try this again and use layout #2 paying closer attention to my value choices. Some of these blocks were too muddled... but I liked the "argyle" effect it had. Can you tell how much I am loving my design wall?

11/15: A finish! I'm trying to wean myself from my 505 Spray addiction so dug out my pins and had no problems. Next I'll have to try pin basting a larger top. This quilt will be donated to Project Linus and I am definitely going to give this color combo another try.  Blogged HERE.

HawkFan Thank you! I've always loved shades of purple (my favorite color to wear!) but was surprised when I started working on this UFO again at how much I love purple and green together.

I agree that layout 2 needs to be made. Nothing against layout 1, which is also quite attractive. Some child will be very happy.

Mymble

Love it- great name too- and I agree with Clairealex - Layout 2 should be made- it's wonderful as well.
