Aurifil BOM

On the 15th of each month the new Aurifil block pattern is posted. This month is an unusual design called "Sparkler" by designer Wendy Sheppard.  You can get the pattern at the Aurifil blog here. Here is my version in my favourite red and white fabrics. It was fun to sew and I can totally see this as a great Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt block... can't you?!?

This pattern has lots of small pieces, so you can use up some smaller scraps making this block. I cut the whole block, pinned the pieces together and very carefully sewed each quadrant. It would be very easy to get the design mixed up which would result in overuse of the seam ripper!
To see more fun variations on this block pattern, hop over to Pat Sloan's link up.

That is a lot of pieces...and red. Too bad I could have given you small pieces at our retreat. There might have been a bit of red on my table!!

Yup, definitely a candidate for a rainbow scrap challenge block. I can already see rainbow chains in my minds eye!

I think I would probably mess up that block, yours turned out good.
