At last! Today I am so happy to share a doubled finish - my Sparklers Quilt and the Sparklers Quilt Pattern! This pattern includes directions to make a queen OR king sized bed quilt. It's going to be big, and it's going to be fabulous! I hope you're as pleased as pie when it all comes together.
I made this quilt for my mom, using mostly Kona solids and a sprinkling of text scraps. Clearly my mom is one hip lady! The quilt turned out so modern and fresh. I love it! We photographed it yesterday on another windy afternoon at my parent's home on Lake Murray, SC. Emily's quilting was the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks to those of you who encouraged me to produce this pattern! You can find it now at the Stitched in Color Pattern Shop (where access to Curves Class Premium is still available through March 30th). As noted in the Sparklers Quilt pattern description, I recommend this pattern to quilters with some experience (intermediate and up). It's not actually a hard quilt, but the pattern is written to an audience who has some general understanding of how to piece blocks.
There are 3 layered effects where blocks appear to overlap, though
they of course do not. One layered effect is created with a partial
seam. Pictures will walk you through step by step! Also, the sparklers block construction includes a touch of improvisational
piecing. This makes each sparkler block slightly different, though
finished at a standard size. I believe you'll find this process much
more enjoyable than striving to churn out block after "precise" block.
With over 30 pictures, I believe this 28-page pdf pattern
will make your experience a pleasure! I hope you or your loved one
will be snuggling under your very own Sparklers quite soon.
Thanks, Mama, for inspiring this fun project. I hope you and Dad are reminded of how much I love you every morning and every night. You are always a blessing.
With all my love,
