Ruby Sparkles - done!

Another finish ready for the cooler weather here! This is the "Ruby Sparkles" quilt using the Sparkle Plenty quilt pattern from Loft Creations.
I have quilted it in straight lines which radiate out from the middle of the central star block - this was fairly easy to quilt as I just followed the angles of the HST's . 
. These fabrics are so lovely together  - and this quilt finished at about 52" square after washing.
In keeping with the Ruby theme I used a red gingham as the backing.
And it even looks pretty from the back....
Also, I have just seen that there is a Festival of Half Square Triangles starting next week at Canoe Ridge Creations which includes lots of ways to use HST's in sewing projects.
Linking to Sew Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations and  Fabric Tuesday at Quiltstory.
