Sparkler Quilt Pattern Now Available—and On Sale

Sparkler quilt - pattern now available
Just a quick post to say that my Sparkler quilt pattern, which was originally published in the Spring 2013 issue of Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts, is now available as a stand-alone pattern, and is on sale for a limited time for just $3.99!

Sparkler quilt This design is based on a traditional block that is usually seen as a tessellating pattern, but I've switched things up with bright solids and reversed-out color pattern to freshen it up.

And yes, this quilt is easy! No, really! It totally is. It's made with strips, squares, and a few half-square triangles (made in a very easy way with no trimming or squaring up required). Super beginner friendly, I promise. : )

The pattern includes instructions to make the quilt in two sizes, Lap size (60" x 84"—the original size as featured in the magazine), or Crib size (45" x 63"), a size which has not been published until now. As always with my patterns, there are plenty of full-color illustrations and diagrams to help you along each step of the way.

The Crib size uses fat-eighths and the Lap size uses fat-quarters, so it's pre-cut friendly as well! And of course, I can't neglect to give the wonderful Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful credit for her amazing quilting! Jenny is so talented! (And she's just starting a quilt along of her Metro Medallion tutorial—go check it out.)

The pattern is now available in both PDF and hard-copy versions in my shop, and the PDF version is also available at Craftsy and Threadbias.

The PDF version of Sparkler is on sale now at just $3.99—that's 50% off the normal price! Save a few dollars by grabbing it now!

I'm also now including Sparkler in my Three-Pattern Bundle for $12.99so the bundle now includes Sparkler, plus my two current top-sellers, Diamond Tread and Chain Reaction.

And as always, I can't wait to see what you do with this pattern! If you make it, please upload it to the Freshly Pieced Flickr group so that you can share it with me and many others! Have a wonderful week!
