The applique and glitter is such a departure from anything else I've made. I figured I'd go whole hog and embellish it with buttons and ribbons. But I couldn't bear to cover up any of the colorful threads. Wherever I placed the buttons, they were over some bit of color I wanted to feature. So there's one button. I skipped the ribbon for much the same reason.
I still can't manage to bind a sharp corner. Beyond that, I'm really happy with this quilt. Everything is straight and true and hangs flat. The narrow red edging doesn't waver.
It's so hard to capture the sparkle. I had this finished a week ago, but didn't get good photos until Sunday. You can get a bit of the feel from a little heart in the photo below.
