The sun is sparkling today and Sparkle No. 1 quilt is done.  Sparkle No. 2 quilt is pinned and ready for quilting.

Let me back up.  Last November I joined a charity sewing group on Flickr called Do.Good.Stitches.  There are many sub-groups within the larger group and I joined the Faith group.  There are ten ladies who sew blocks every month while one person organizes, collects & assembles that month’s blocks. Our charity that we are donating quilts to is Restore Innocence, an organization that rescues girls from human trafficking.  This is a tragic issue that is finally getting more exposure & help through organizations like Restore Innocence.

January was my month to organize and assemble.  These are the blocks that I asked everyone to make.  We used the Sparkle tutorial to make the blocks.  And with each of us making 2 blocks I had enough to make two quilts. This is the first one. The second one is pinned and ready for quilting.  I was inspired by Amanda’s honeycomb quilting but used a slightly different stitch.  It’s stitch number 19 on my Janome 7700.  It’s more curvy than zig zaggy.  I love the ripply effect after washing!   I’m definitely going to use this stitch again for more quilting. I just love it.  The finished size of the quilt is approximately 60″ x 69″.
