I love the way this quilt turned out! Tish’NWonderland sponsored this little QAL. The pace was fun and easy. The pictures, below, shows you the progress of the QAL. A final reveal will happen on January 1 – I think.
I wanted the quilting to be easy, fast and emphasize the action in the pattern. I did some in the ditch before I settle on this. I didn’t start every arc in the center, but sort of moved around in the very center block. I also filled in as I went. So I did a few at a time and added more as I needed to. It was a very fast and forgiving way to quilt this.
This quilt was part of two of my finishing goals – OMG (goal is set here)and 4th Quarter FAL (goal set here).

I really like how your quilting helps emphasize the motion of the piecing. Congratulations on a lovely finish! Do you have plans for the quilt?
Hi Kathleen! Oh man, I love how you quilted Fireburst. The movement is just perfect!! That reminds me of a fireworks quilt I saw this summer in Bar Harbor, Maine. Maybe I’ll give that quilting pattern a shot. Hmmm. Am I that brave?!! Sure, why not! LOVE this. ~smile~ Roseanne
You can do it! It is easy…and I didn’t do the same spot everytime – you can see it on the back – and I did do different threads so you see a little of the green on the white. You will love it.
I have loved your fabrics from day one, but your quilting takes it over the top! I love the movement this simple motif gave this quilt! Congrats on your finish!
Love the quilt and your quilting! Your slideshow is a great way to document.
Wow, this quilting looks fantastic with the Fireburst pattern! Love it! It really does look like a firework bursting. Lovely quilt.
Love the way you quilted this! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!
I love how that turned out ! Your quilting is just perfect for it!!
Oh, I love that design! Can I try that? Did you mark the curves? This is so cool!
Oh, I love your quilt and how you have it quilted!
It looks super! Love those radiating curved lines, very dynamic and fireburst-y 🙂
You chose such wonderful colors for your Fireworks Mystery. The quilting compliments it perfectly. Congrats on another finish! Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.
I love the colours of this one, and the quilting sets it off brilliantly! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2018 FAL hosts!
I did have a great time making them, and like you, they always make me want to make a quilt with them.
