9067 Intermediate Sparkle Michelle combined two of her favorite quilt blocks, the Rambler and V Star (also known as the Peaky and Spike/50-40 or Fight Block) in Sparkle. If you collect Fat Quarters, this is the quilt to make; it makes fabulous usage of Fat Quarters and is perfect on any background color.

For the most sparkle, go with high contrast between your background fabric and the Fat Quarters. Select an accent color to use minimally, so that it pops! Michelle used a green accent.

As you learn to make the blocks, you will also learn to use three Studio 180 Design Tools: Tucker Trimmer, V Block, and Corner Pop. Plus, Michelle will share great organizational, sewing, and cutting tips and tricks.
