November: One Monthly Goal


This is Fireburst Mystery from TishNWonderland that I started in July.  You can find the pattern there in her QAL section.  It really is a pretty quick one and helped me use up some stash (one of my agreements with myself – just too many UFOs to finish). The challenge is to have it done by January and I am well on my way.  You can see the blocks are done and I made a guess as to the layout.


Don’t you just love the center block?fullsizeoutput_1575.jpeg

Mine is assembled and awaiting quilting.  Hallelujah!  I won’t be in Maine with it again until after Thanksgiving but it is a small baby quilt, 32″ square, so it should be easy peasy to get done!  I probably just jinxed myself.

    Hi Kathleen! Easy peasy. Yup. You jinxed yourself for sure. I can’t wait to see how you quilt it!! I’m glad you’re not keeping it a mystery until January 1st (like I am because I have no ideas . . .). It is truly beautiful and I do love the center block. And you fabric choices!! Happy Happy Wednesday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Thanks, Yvonne. It was a lovely little mystery, and will live in my “in case I need a baby quilt pile”, for some time.

    I know you can do it. (finish that quilt) It is very pretty. Good luck. I got my fabric picked for sewing this one but that’s as far as it went. I’ve been very busy this summer and fall.

      It is a pretty quick quilt. I loved the pace, so you could replicate in the fullness of time. It does seem like you have been traveling a whole lot – good for you.

    I do love the center block! And the pretty marblizided fabric.

      Thank you, Gail. I think I am doing a real quick design, like fireworks on it – that’s my latest plan!

    I’m in the same stage as you, top finished and trying to decide how to quilt it. I do know for me, it won’t be easy peasey. Can’t wait to see yours quilter. 🙂

    • November 10, 2018 / 6:39 PM

      I hope you can get to it. If it is the baby size it is pretty easy. I hope it will be fast for both of us!

    Wow, that one block looks like a bear to wrestle….great job…love it.

    • November 10, 2018 / 6:38 PM

      I think you could conquer that block, it wasn’t too hard!

      It was nice that I was able to shop my stash for these. I have been waiting to use that marbelized fabric for a long time.
