This is such an awesome pattern designed by the wonderful folks at Fat Quarter Shop!!!! I love that somethings I see the Red Diamonds and sometimes I see the Black/White kites :) Such amazing movement and wonderful play with secondary designs!!
This quilt uses 2 Jelly Rolls and I choose to use Modern Backgrounds Ink and Modern Backgrounds Paper by Zen Chic for Moda ;) I paired those with a wonderful Brushed Moda Bella Solid Christmas Red. This was my first time using a Brushed Cotton and I absolutely loved it!!! It is so incredibly soft!!
And if you are thinking, "Wow, she makes a lot of Red, Black and White quilts", you are so very right ;) One, I absolutely love the color combo!! Two, it is also the school colors of my Alma Mater and this quilt was serving two purposes. The first purpose is to share here and try out a new ruler, done and done!!! And the second purpose was to be a special prize at a special fundraiser for Southern Utah University. So I added one of my Complex Layered Applique (tutorial on how I make these found here) of SUU Logo's after photographing it and it was all set for purpose two :) Here is a shot of the lucky winner with her new Firecracker SUU Quilt ;)
And back to a few more details of the quilt making . . . when it came time to quilt this it seemed only right to quilt it with my all over fireworks design. I mean, if you have a quilt called Firecrackers, of course Fireworks quilting is the perfect match :)
And I just love all of the yummy texture it adds!!! And I quilted it with a gorgeous Red Fox #469 So Fine #50 Thread and I absolutely love how it blends in the red triangles and totally pops on the Black and White Kites!!! So fun!!!
And that is Firecracker!!!! I just love it!!!!!! And if you love it too and wan't to make your own, you can find the Pattern Here ;) Fat Quarter Shop has also put together a Quilt Kit for their original design using Prairie Fabrics by Corey Yoder for Moda and it can be found here with the backing set found here ;)
And if you are a little nervous wondering if you can try a new ruler as well, have no fear :) Kimberly has put together this awesome You Tube tutorial video that will walk you through all of the steps and she has lots of great tips to help you line everything up just perfect so you know you will have a fantastic finish :)
And for lots more Firecrackers Quilt Eye Candy, be sure to pop around to all of the other stops along this little Firecracker Blog Hop!!! It is so fun to see how different each quilt looks like just by changing up the fabrics ;)
