I don't know if any of you ever wondered where my blog name came from but here is the story. My eldest daughter is called Sparkle. I am mama of Sparkle, or Mama Spark. My DD1 is very into dragons. She drew the personification of herself in dragon form. Of course Sparkle was purple.
Fast forward to her high school graduation. I asked her to draw Sparkle and I was going to use that for her graduation party invitation. Would you like to see Sparkle now? This is the enlarged version.
I had this brilliant idea to enlarge it (check) and make it into a quilt. Well, you can see how long that has taken me right, she is 25!! This is what I needed the purples for!!!!! Are you ready to see the top?? It is kind of small but cute, I think. Ok enough stalling...
And because you probably want to see the applique up close (I know I would want to) here it is.
I LOVE IT!!! I used dark purple thread to "draw" in the lines so now it looks like the actual drawing. This was totally new to me and I like the effect. So be kind, tell me whatcha' think. Wouldn't you like to know what you look like in dragon form?
Thank you everyone that sent me fabric too. It just makes the quilt~
