Pattern Showcase: Sparkle

Today I wanted to show some of our newest shots of our bestselling SPARKLE quilt. We thought that "sparkle" was such a perfect name for this project because it just twinkles with color even as you are still putting it together

So wonderful done in a variety of colors, I have some customers working on it in a patriotic group, in batiks and in romantic florals. I can't wait to see each and everyone of them!


This is one of those great projects that looks like a lot of time and labor went into it when in fact it really is a simple 4 block quilt. Even we were amazed each time we sewed up a new sample as to how quickly each star came together.  Each star can be made with a charm pack or scraps from your stash. The 4 blocks are then put together with a basic sashing, using up all the rest of the scraps or charm pack pieces.





… the quilted wreaths and cross hatches on this quilt are just perfect I think. 












NAME: Sparkle

SIZE: 76" x 76" or 70" x 70" [depending on which version you make] or a 36" table topper version shown above. 

FABRIC: Made from our upcoming TAPESTRY collection, due out in stores in October '12. We have also made this pattern from our CALIFORNIA GIRL collection, in stores this past Spring. A great summer quilt from that group. More pictures of the quilt will be on our sidebar to the left by the end of this week.

There is also a striking burgundy background version that we will showcase tomorrow. 

This quilt uses MODA CANDY or charm packs or a Layer Cake. It is basically a perfect way to use up your favorite precuts!
