Fireworks! (in August)

This is a project I've been wanting to do for a while.  The pattern is Camille Roskelley's titled, Fireworks.  This is a fairly large quilt that is made out of 16 blocks which are mostly pieced out of HSTs.
I chose the fabric from her Day Sail collection which I love!

Here's a close up of some of the fabric.  This might be my favorite block so far.  The mint green and pretty cursive writing is lovely.

These blocks are time consuming, but I do find that chain piecing, pressing the seams open and using lots of starch help to get those points set just right!  This one's a keeper..... just need to decide on a fabric for the back.  There are just too many pretty Day Sail fabrics to choose from.

Thanks for visiting my blog!  Can't believe it's August already....
(I'm linking up with CrazyMom Quilts finish it up Friday.)



  1. Love her quilts! That aqua text fabric, and block are just terrific. I have her Craftsy class, still haven't got around to making one of the quilts from it...even have a stack of fat quarters calling me of their fabric, think it's Daysail...

  2. Gorgeous! I have this pattern and a fat quarter bundle of Day Sail--I am thinking of making a king sized one for our bed. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. That looks beautiful, look forward to seeing the other blocks. The colour is quite stunning. Love your chevrons below too.
