I am not done yet, but thought that I would post a photo. All I have left to do is to sew the pieces down and quilt and bind it.
I am not a glitter person so I decided not to make something with actual sparkle, but interpret that less literally. I teach Astronomy so what comes to my mind is stars. I also love Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night painting. So I decide to do a take off of that painting using the snippet technique that I always wanted to try. I wanted the contrast in fabrics (blue and yellow) to give the appearance of sparkle. I call it "Tribute to van Gogh."
The snippets are made by ironing fusible web to the back of fabrics and then cutting it into small pieces. You can't believe how many times I fused little bits of fabrics to my iron because you could not tell which side had the fusible on it for some of the fabrics! I had left over tree parts from a quilt that I never made so decide to use them up.
I won't get to quilt this until Friday.
