“Baby, you’re a Firework” Quilt

This is one of my most favourite quilts – EVER – and today it came home after being with the publishers for the past few months. This is one of those quilts which I envisioned, designed, made, and every time I look at it, I  smile. It just makes me supremely happy.

It’s a solid navy background, with “fireworks” appliqued in a random sort of placement. My brief for this project was “Celebrations”. What’s a fabulous celebration without a firework spectacular at the end? I decided to create
a firework quilt and honestly, from the moment I imagined it in my mind, I was hooked.

I called it “Baby, you’re a firework’ after my daughters favourite song by Katy Perry. She really likes this quilt and wants it for her bed. Luckily for me, it’s only a lap size quilt, and its too small for her bed.

I love, love love this quilt and it will hang on a wall, somewhere in my home… after I add a hanging sleeve that is.

This quilt pattern is available in the new issue of Patchwork & Stitching Magazine in Australia. It is on sale from today. Doesn’t it look pretty right there on the cover?
