Glowing Outside

I finally finished quilting the larger Illuminaria Quilt, and did all the hand sewing for the binding while staying up late watching the Summer Olympics...and ta da!
Finished Illuminaria Quilt-I love all the pop of color, warmth and glow!
Glowing and electrified quilt back!
I snuck inside to take some pictures of the quilt back to find unexpected surprises:  Thanks to the sun shining through--the center squares appeared to be truly glowing through and the stitching looked like it was electrified!    

I had some fun taking pictures of both Illuminaria quilts around the backyard...many thanks to Doug's technical assistance and some puppy props!
