Kwik Sparklers BOM - Getting Started

Sparklers BOM '19


Thank you for joining me!  I can’t wait to show you how fun and versatile Kwik Sparklers can be. This is a great chance to play with your pieces, color, and fabrics to create a design that zings with your own personality.

Because everything’s better with friends, please take a moment to join the Facebook group,  Karie’s Sewing Spot.  It’s a great place to share your progress photos, ask questions, and find inspiration for your Kwik Sparklers blocks.

Before you begin, you’ll need to gather a few things.


  • Kwik Sparklers Pattern
  • Glue basting pen and refills
  • Purple Elmer’s glue stick
  • Needles - Tulip brand milliners needles in size 10  are my jam
  • Thread - I like Decobob by Wonderfil. Pro tip: Gray blends with just about everything
  • Your favorite thimble. Thimble Pads by Colonial Needle Company are my go-to
  • Acrylic Templates are optional but they really make cutting much faster - and are great for fussy-cutting
  • Pro tip: Washi tape on acrylics helps you keep from loosing them in your stuff. I use regular washi on the front, because it's pretty.
    I use glitter washi on the back because its texture prevents it from slipping on my fabric


    • Background fabric - 4 yards
    • Blocks – Assorted fabrics

    I am making 3 different options, using fabrics from some of my favorite designers:

    • Quantum and Redux by Giucy-Giuce
    • Alison Glass
    • Tasha Noel fabrics with supporting fabrics from my stash

    Whether you are using a curated collection or bundle, a kit from your local quilt shop, or pulling from your stash, choose what YOU love and go for it! 

    Everyone loves show and tell, so don’t forget to post using #kwiksparklersBOM and #iblamekarie.
