Sparkle - A Christmas Sew Along!

I've been in desperate need of a new Christmas quilt for a few years now. My only Christmas quilt has been around for several years, and needless to say it's time for something new. Even though I don't "stash" fabrics, I have been hoarding some fat quarters for the last couple years, and it's finally time to cut them up and put them to use! 
I've sketched out a new quilt and thought it would be fun to sew and share as I go over the next week. You are welcome to sew along with me. I will share instructions here, starting with the fabric requirements today, and then sharing steps in the pattern each day until the quilt is complete.

I'm super duper excited to officially introduce you to my first sew-along, Sparkle!
Sparkle quilt will finish at 76"x76", it's a great stashbuster quilt, and a fabulous lap size!
These are the fabrics that I've pulled for my quilt (plus a few more reds), plus the solid white! I'm so super duper excited about this quilt, I'll be sharing pictures over on instagram using #sparklexmassewalong if you want to join me there.

I'll be back tomorrow with cutting instructions!

  1. Ho, ho, ho. I need to check my Christmas fabric stash, but I think I have enough to do this. And, I agree with you - we need new Christmas Quilts. Thank you for hosting this. Yeah. Best Quilter Christmas Party every! Time sewing with friends, even virtually, is a great way to enjoy the holidays.
