Baby Quilt Finish

I'm celebrating a quilt finish today and it feels good.  As of right now, it doesn't have a name.  This was due to be the next quilt pattern release for Wonderland, but due to some technical difficulties, that has been delayed, but we won't get into that.  It's neither here nor there.  I still want to share this fun finish.

Since the ultimate goal is for this quilt to be a for use baby quilt, I kept the quilting quite simple and went with an over all orange peel design.  Using the Handi Quilter Slice ruler, these continuous curves stitched out super quick with no marking required.

Yummy soft texture on the back.

For my quilting threads, I used 50wt Aurifil #2510 Light Lilac for the bobbin and top threads.  That soft purple added just the right touch to the quilting.  For the melon colored binding, I went with 50wt Aurifil #5002 Medium Red (it actually appeared orange-ish) in the bobbin and their Clear Monofilament thread on the top.  I chose the monofilament over a white or melon color because it blends so beautifully.  Stitching in the ditch and staying on track can be hard.  With this clear thread I could drive as recklessly as I wanted, well with in reason.

I even remembered to attached my label...that doesn't happen often.

It feels good to slowly get back into my quilting groove again.  Hopefully, a few more finishes in the not to far off future.  I do promise we will start busting UFO's again.  My energy level just hasn't been up to a whole lot of blog reading as of lately.  Stay tune, I am getting my grove back.

Fireburst Mystery QAL--Block 1

Happy 1st of August!  Are you as ready as I am to start piecing an actual block for the Fireburst Mystery Quilt??  Good, lets get to it.

Block Pieces

Use the pieces in the above chart to make four of the block below.

Your finished blocks should measure Baby Quilt 10.5" square and Lap Quilt 20.5" square.

And just like that, we are finished for this month.  How about we take a peak at my three versions of the quilt.  To be fair to the mystery layout, I've arranged the blocks in different manners so as not to give anything away.  Even just these blocks would make very cool mini quilt layout! 

I'd love to see how your blocks are coming together!  Feel free to post your progress on our Facebook Page or tag us on Instagram @tishnwonderland #fireburstmysteryquilt.  You can also down load a printable copy of the pattern on my Craftsy Store here.
