Sparkle Punch Quilt WIP

I've been admiring the Sparkle Punch Quilt pattern found in one of my quilt books for a very long time. The book is called Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts by Fons & Porter. There's also a stack of fabrics I purchased at the West Bend Quilt Show this last February that catches my eye whenever I open my fabric closet.

It's kind of funny how the stars all seem to need to align in order to see how these two things can go together. Maybe it has to do with my recent purchase of an entire bolt of Kona ivory solid fabric. Having the availability of that much background fabric is such a luxury.

As I took apart the fat quarter bundle from the quilt show, I was getting really excited to find that there was enough fabric in the bundle to make the Sparkle Punch quilt top.

The quilt instructions state to make 80 sets of five 3 and a half-inch squares and almost as many solid squares to make the wonky star points. Plus there's other blocks that include partial wonky stars as well. I think I will be working on these cute little star points for a very long time. But what a great project to take along to open sew.
