Guest Blogger - Molli Sparkles

For this week's guest blogger, we have the fabulous Molli Sparkles. Wait til you see his awesome project in our first issue of Make Modern! Meanwhile, read on and learn a few truths about Molli.

The Truth About Molli.

I made my first solo quilt in yellow because there's not enough sunshine in the world.

When I first started quilting, I had a brilliant idea: I'd start a quilt blog. No one will have ever done that before ... Oh.

Madonna. Cher. Mariah. Kylie. Molli. Enough said.

I like big seam rippers and I can not lie.

My Make Modern pattern, Trip Around the Universe is an improved version of a Trip Around the World. Because really, who wants to wind up where they started off? you either get it or you don't.

I founded the NGAQB (No Girls Allowed Quilt Bee) and the ever-growing Men Who Quilt group. Confusing places to be for a guy called Molli Sparkles.

No, I don't have a pattern for my D! quilt. Disney's legal team might though.

The Glitterati are friends of Molli Sparkles who believe in themselves and the power of positivity. Are you ready to shine?

"I quilt so I don't kill people." Nah, I quilt because I already slayed the entire world.

I'm working on project thirty-two after only sewing for two years. Some might say I have an addictive personality.

My favourite colour is silver, and my favourite creature is the unicorn. A silver unicorn? That's just cray.

My weekly Sunday Stash link-up is a safe house for fabric fugitives.

Calling it scrappy is not an excuse for it being ugly.

I'm an equal opportunity fabric employer. There's no room for discrimination in my stash, even for batiks.

You're the only you, you've got, so love yourself sick.

You can serve me Truth Tea anytime you like. I can take it like a boss.

Borders on quilts are allowed, but heavens to Betsi, they're definitely not required.

I oil my Juki with champagne.

My weave will always be bigger and better than yours. It's a fact of life.



  1. Too right! Scrappy should not be an excuse for ugly.
    My favourite colour is red and my favourite animal is my dog. Red dog. Hey, didn't they make a movie about that?

  2. A trip around the universe sounds like fun :)

  3. Which is why I think Molli should add on a Mod Chic Batik challenge/sew-a-long in addition to the other 163 sparkly things he's got in the works :) Fun guest blog spot!
