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...

Kwik Sparklers BOM - Month 3

WELCOME TO MONTH 3!   This month we are playing with a completely different way to put the Kwik Sparkler pieces together - playing with light, medium, and dark fabrics to create movement. I am still waiting on Redux by Giucy-Giuce for Andover fabrics to be released, so Giuseppe is kindly making the sample for that block. Shown here are the blocks for the other two versions that I have done. Notice that although both samples used 3 fabrics, the diamonds were paired up differently and the finished block can be attached so that the negative space in the center looks like a “+” or...

Kwik Sparklers BOM - Month 2

WELCOME TO MONTH 2!   This month we are making the Medallion layout of Kwik Sparklers. You can find the details for this layout in your Kwik Sparklers Pattern. When selecting fabrics for this block, think about how you envision everything tyingtogether. Since the Medallion is the centerpiece of your quilt, you have limitless possibilities with this block. Do you want to select one focus fabric that has all of the other colors you will be using in your quilt? Do you want to tie everything together for a cohesive look? Maybe you want to use the same fabric that you use in...

Kwik Sparklers BOM - Month 1

WELCOME TO MONTH 1!  This month we’ll be creating the original layout of the Kwik Sparklers block. You can find it in the Kwik Sparklers Pattern. Choose one fabric or multiple fabrics to make your block. I encourage you to play with color and prints and make this block your own! Arc pieces can be cut from one fabric or you can split the arcs into 3 sections to give your block a scrappier look. Point pieces can also be all one fabric, 2, 4, or even 16 fabrics, depending on the desired look. The pattern provides details for how best to...
