Presenting Jess,

Jess, another quilt for Making Connections

Joy's little sister from the Making Connections Blog Hop, earlier this month.

Ready for a ton of eye candy? 

Here's the center square,

Next up, a few closeups of the negative space around the pinwheels.

Sparkle Crosshatching in negative space around pinwheels on Jess quilt

To add a bit of sparkle to those pinwheels, there's a little extra stitching in the crosshatching.

Interested in how these negative spaces were quilted with the Sparkle Crosshatching? Then take a look at the video, which follows the creation of the seeds, the crosshatch, and the sparkles, all in one continuous stitching sequence. Who can resist sparkles?
