Kwik Sparklers Medallion

One of the most amazing things about this EPP (English Paper Piecing) pattern is how many different ways it can be configured. This  quilt layout  has been in my head since the conception of this design.


At that time I pictured it in navy blue with a white medallion but all that changed when Alison Glass shared the fabrics in her Kaleidoscope line with me back in February. The Kaleidoscope fabrics are a woven shot cotton that feel fabulous. I decided to make the miniature version in navy.  Alison sent me some advance yardage (this color is called Beetle) so I could make it for the launch of my pattern.  I planned to use white for the medallion, but the more I looked at it the more this fabulous Lime Insignia was begging to be used instead.  



Quilting is not my favorite part - whenever possible I let one of my long-arm friends make the magic happen. I could just imagine this done in graffiti quilting with green thread but never imagined that Karlee Porter, author of Graffiti Quilting, would have the time to do it for me before market. It is more breathtaking than I could have ever imagined and she used Sulky 40wt Rayon1835 in peapod green.  That thread just sparkles!
