This quilt has been a long time coming... I started this Fireworks quilt back in February and it took me until now to get it finished... Although I have some fair excuses, that's still a long time! Nevertheless, it is done now and I can relax about it!
The quilt top is made up entirely of Constellations by Lizzy House. I am totally in love with this fabric and I love that she made a print of stars on white so that I could use it as the background.
This is a Thimble Blossoms pattern by Camille Roskelly (link above) and it was written really well! The "fireworks" came together easily after I made the first block and got the hang of it. It did, however, take me 6 hours to sew together two blocks, since I made them two at a time. This is not a fast quilt, but I would say it is rewarding.
For the back I used more Constellations and Timeless Treasure's sketch in navy. I wanted to stick with dark fabric for the back because I want to use this as a stargazing quilt (once the weather warms up again!)
I quilted it in concentric circles and I absolutely LOVE it. I first fell in love with concentric circles when I quilted my Dad's Body and Sole quilt last year. I knew then that I just had to have my own quilt with those circles someday. When I was stumped on how to quilt this quilt, I thought, why not? I used a variegated thread so it shifts from dark blue to light blue to white and I love that!
Here's number two for my 99 in 999 goal number #33: Make a quilt for each month of the year! This one is going to be June. Or May. I haven't quite decided!
