The warmer weather if finally showing up. To help us get to summer a little bit quicker how about a mini quilt tutorial all about summer sparklers?!
You know the sparklers that shine bright in the night sky…run around with them, twirl them, watch with mesmerizing eyes the patterns and shapes. We love sparklers.
This mini quilt will be sewn a little bit differently –instead of blocks, we will be going for rows. This would be fun to sew in a dark background with a gold or silver color for the sparkler part.
