Kwik Sparklers BOM - Month 6

WELCOME TO MONTH 6!   This month we're playing with the mini pieces along with the regular pieces! You will use 8 diamonds in each size as well as 4 arcs in each size. This will leave 8 diamonds in each size that you will save for Month 10. Incorporate light, medium, and dark fabrics to create movement.

Paradigm Showcase Tour Blog Hop!

Paradigm Showcase Tour Blog Hop!

I'm so excited to be part of this tour to celebrate the debut of Sarah Thomas' line, Paradigm, for Hoffman Fabrics. The design possibilities with these fabrics are endless - especially for one of my favorite things - fussy cutting!  I created a brand new pattern just for the occasion.... Bright circles add so much fun to this design! Create finished-edge circles with fusible interfacing, or use fusible web for raw edge appliqué. Spice them up using a 60° equilateral triangle ruler to make kaleidoscope circles.

Kwik Sparklers BOM - Month 4

WELCOME TO MONTH 4! This month we are playing off of the layout from Month 3 but we are making the diamond sets face outward. In the Alison Glass sample, I used 5 different fabrics, breaking up the arcs into 3 pieces and used 4 of those 5 for the Star in the middle. For the block to go with my Tasha Noel quilt, I used 4 fabrics (none of which are actually Tasha Noel). I left the arcs as one piece, but made 8 diamonds with a striped fabric and the remaining diamonds 2 other fabrics. Notice how the stars...
