Sparkle Punch Finished

I love this design by Elizabeth over at Oh, Fransson!  She has so many great tutorials.  She comes up with some awesome quilts.  If you haven't checked her out, you should.

So I made this for a friend who has had a long road of trying to get pregnant.  She recently got pregnant within weeks of her sister and sister-in-law.  Unfortunately, she had a miscarriage.  I just can't imagine.  I know she thinks of the baby often.  She is a great Aunt to her nephew and niece, but I know her heart hurts and longs to hold baby Hope.

I hope that she loves this quilt and knows that many hours of prayers have been said for her as I made this.

I used many different fabrics from my stash...too many to name, and I honestly don't know most of the names!

I quilted it by following the lines on the inside and out of the stars. I think it made a great design on the back!

  1. Very fun quilt. It's name makes me think of VW bugs and the punch buggy game.

    I hope it brings all of the comfort and then some that you have in mind for your friend.

  11. What a beautiful quilt. I love how you made the quilting around your stars connect from one to the next. I hope your friend feels "hugged and loved" each time she wraps this around herself. So sorry for her loss, I know how difficult that is.

  12. This is beautiful. I know it will take a long time for your friend to heal, but I'm sure this quilt will be most comforting to her. Please encourage her to find a support group for parents of angel babies. My sister's SIL has gone through this and the support group has helped her. Oh, and say Hope's name often. I've been told it helps the heart heal. <3
