Firecrackers by Must Love Quilts

Howdy! I’m super excited to share my version of the Firecrackers Quilt, pattern designed and available via Fat Quarter Shop. One of my favorite parts of the online quilting community is seeing the different ways people interpret a pattern. Fabric choice and placement plays such an important part of quilting! I knew I wanted to offer a different voice with this pattern, and ultimately I decided it might be fun to use Zen Chic’s Modern Background Paper as the print, and a variety of solids as my “neutral.”

My quilty friends know that I prefer regular piecing to paper piecing. Another thing that is great about this quilt is that it is traditionally pieced using jelly rolls and the ever fantastic Creative Grids rulers. Followers of my blog know I can’t get enough of those. Fat Quarter Shop also has super helpful tutorials so that any skill level can take this quilt on! Here are a few helpful links for folks who are interested:

  1. I love your fabric choices and quilting! Your quilt is wonderful. I would use the Judy Niemeyer Bali pop for this quilt. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  2. I’m glad you chose to use the solids for the background, I started thinking about what this would be like with white stars and colored backgrounds, and here you did it to show me! Thanks!
