Fireworks Quilt

I've likely been more sick than well in 2013, including most recently dealing with pneumonia that I've decided celebrate the end of 2013 with a Fireworks finish.  I've been working on this quilt, a pattern called "Fireworks" by Camille Roskelley on and off for a while now.  I finished the last block this morning and decided to play around with the blocks making a mosaic in Picassa to test out which layout I might prefer most.  It's much easier than trying to scramble around finding free space on the floor to decide arrangement--each block is 16 inches and so it does take up quite a lot of space in the room.

The fabrics I used in this quilt are a little off my usual beat of late, they are mostly by Tilda with some Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry thrown in.  I am loving the soft feminine look of this quilt.  I hope to get the blocks sewn together soon and on the long arm as I plan to free motion quilt this one and have been looking forward to the practice.

In other news, our shop is having a 20% off of everything sale with a minimum purchase of $24.  Use the code "January" at the checkout.  We would appreciate your business and hope to continue to offer exciting new fabrics in 2014.

what a great idea using Picassa, but then that assumes you can take a half decent photo, which we all know I Cannot!

I agree with Merran. Great idea to use Picassa but how do you get your photos to fit together so perfectly?

Well if I was in awe of you before I am now downright gobsmacked! The volume and quality of your work is inspiring (okay maybe a little intimidating as well)but to know that you have produced what you have this year whilst being ill a good part of the time???!!! OMG. I hope 2014 sees you hale and hearty once more. I can't wait to see what you create.

This looks gorgeous! I love the idea of making a collage to "layout" the blocks.

You absolutely nailed this pattern! Your fabric choises just make it pop (you can't blame me for the pun, it was begging to be used)! All of your work is amazing, I love being able to follow along on IG!
