This is a perfect time of year to share Riley Blake Designs "Sparkle Basics" in their blog tour.
For most of us, December means cold weather and snow that "sparkles."
Christmas has shiny tinsel and then there's New Year's Eve's fireworks and confetti.
Yep, it's a perfect time for this sparkly fabric!
No snow but the clouds were dark and hinted at a storm.
I love the desert with or without snow!
50" x 50" in six of the "Sparkle" fabrics
Definitely a storm brewing behind the quilt!
The choices for "Sparkle" fabrics are incredible and every one of them shines!
Riley Blake Designs Sparkle Basics are great for quilting, apparel, and home decor.
The fabric works for backgrounds and backings, and is 100 per cent cotton, too.
These are the fabrics I used in "Winter Storm."
I loved how beautiful they went together (cool rock, too!)
The black rose gold was perfect to help create "the storm."
Of course it snowed the day after I took all the other photos!
Not much snow and it ended a little too quickly,
but I will take what I can get...it was fun to see and enjoy!
I used my favorite iron-on adhesive for the snowflake.Therm O Web's Heat n Bond Lite is awesome!
The protective paper peels off so easy and it comes in a inkjet printable version,
which means no tracing. Just print your design, cut out, and iron to fabric.
Aurifil 40wt white thread for the quilting and Aurifil 40wt black thread
for the applique stitching made everything go together even sweeter.
The silver stripes were perfect for the binding.
You can find the "Winter Storm" pattern HERE.
