The Sparkle Punch Quilt of Awesomeness is all finished!
Last week I took the last stitch in the binding and today the
wind was finally calm enough for photos.

The Quilting: Long Arm Quilting by Pat Boeck
Quilt Holder Extraordinaire: Hubby!
Let me just say it right now-- I AM IN LOVE WITH MY QUILT!!!
I couldn't stop taking photos of it!
My lovely quilter patiently stitched about a million pebbles into the background, and quilted a star into each and every star. The quilt has fabulous texture.
It is just impossible not to reach out and touch it.
Here is the back of the quilt, and my one and only regret: I wish I would not have used that Berry color! I had thought hard about using Pomegranate Kona and I wish with all my heart I would have gone with it. But--done is done, and I love it so much I'm not going to stress about it anymore.
Black and white stars for the back.
Look at all those little pebbles....
You know I just can't stop smiling!
