Summer Sparkle Quilt Along ~ Week 1

Summer Sparkle Quilt Along with Fresh Lemons Quilts

I know, two posts in one day…crazy! :) But today marks the first week of my Summer Sparkle Quilt Along over at Bernina’s We All Sew blog. If you have ever wanted to make a 4th of July quilt…or even just love stars…this is your chance! The Summer Sparkle Quilt is a Sawtooth Star design that uses color gradients in a fun way. I used Color Block Ombre fabric from Vanessa Christenson of V & Co’s Color Me Happy line for Moda. Isn’t it great?

Each week directions will be on Bernina’s blog, but I will also post reminders over here. The Summer Sparkle Quilt Along will follow the below schedule:

June 2nd / Week 1Fabric Requirements and Cutting
June 9th / Week 2Block Assembly
June 16th / Week 3Quilt Top Assembly and Quilting

I hope you will join along!

** Someone emailed me to call to my attention that there are a few items that were left off/changed on the cutting instructions for my pattern. I’ve let Bernina know and they will correct, but hold off on cutting until I update this. (Feel free to go ahead and order your fabric though). :) ** Looks like everything is now up and correct over there!

    Great design! Since I have not done much sewing in the last three months, due to my wrist injury, I think this needs to be the project to get me back into the grove. I’ll be checking with my therapist tomorrow! Congrats on working w/Bernina!

    This looks so fresh! I think I might try it with Christmas colors since I bought so many Christmas fabrics last winter on sale…Don’t we all love stars in the winter? Thank you for this great help!

    Love this quilt Faith! I have gone and bookmarked it. It always amazes me how people use traditional well used blocks and come up with something new and unique. You’re clever people!
