Fireburst – A quilt top




I’ve been friends with Tish of Tish’s Adventures in Wonderland ever since the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers hop when we were in a group that critiqued the look of each other’s blogs. This was a while back and I take no credit for the made over look it has now. So I was never not going to join her first ever Mystery Quilt Along and it turned out to be a great one.


I did several fabric pulls before deciding I should do a scrappy background so that I could use what I had on hand and still end up with the larger size of 64” square. It’s my first ever time at doing a fully scrappy quilt like this and while I think there’s room for improvement I’m really chuffed with the way it turned out.


It’s a stroke of genius to time the parade of finished quilts with New Year’s Eve when fireworks are everywhere so head over to have a look and also to wish Tish a happy 40th!
You can find the instructions to make one of your own in two sizes here


It was a great pattern, Tish! Thanks for hosting this quilt- along.

Happy sewing everyone and happy new year.

  7. Love the colors you chose! They are softer maybe than some of the other Fireburst quilts I've seen, but somehow just as vibrant and lovely. This is a real beauty! Thanks for sharing this on Wednesday Wait Loss
