Fireburst

I first met Tish of Tish's Adventures in Wonderland during the 2016 New Bloggers Hop. I immediately knew from her writing that she was my kind of quilter.  I've been following her blog and her quilting adventures ever since.She's hilarious, generous, and thoughtful.  When she started her first mystery quilt, I knew I had to participate.


I love how it turned out!  The fabrics are all from my stash.  Tish offered color advice via email.  Here you can see my first picture to her, asking about which fabric to use where.  I didn't want to have to say "the dark purple one" and "the pink one" so I gave each fabric a name.  Can you tell the theme I used??


Tish's mystery was wonderfully paced.  A small clue each month with plenty of time to start late or get caught up.  Mine is the smaller of the two sizes and will be donated to my local chapter of Project Linus.  I quilted it in a large spiral, one of my favorite quilting designs for a quick finish.



Tish will be hosting a parade on January 1st for completed Fireburst quilts.  It's a quick enough pattern that you can even start now and have a top for the parade!  Here is her QAL page.

This is #16 on my list of Q4 goals for the globally-hosted Finish Along

Car blocks - November OMG

My project for the 2018 Rainbow Scrap Challenge has been Bumper2Bumper by Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts.  So far, I've made blue, green, purple, and yellow cars, but I'm behind.  I need to make eight more cars.


Completing all the blocks for the top is my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for November in the linky party hosted by Patty of Elm Street Quilts.
