TGIFF - Fireburst Mystery QAL

It took some time, but I finally quilted the two quilt tops for the Fireburst Mystery QAL hosted by Tish @ Tish's Adventure in Wonderland.

This is the smaller version that I made while testing the pattern for Tish.  I used Kona Snow for the background.  The colours didn't come through very well -- the colours are gold and green.

I quilted straight lines radiating out from the centre square.

I used Aurifil #5001 Ocher Yellow for the quilting.  I didn't expect it to blend in so well with the background fabric.

Even with an indoor photo, I couldn't get the colours to show accurately.  Spring and daylight, where are you????

I'll share the larger version I made during the QAL next week.

If you have a finish this week, consider sharing it at:

  1. The quilting is a great way to finish off this design, Anja! Congratulations on the finish. :)

  2. I think it is a stunning piece - I can imagine golder golds and greener greens. And I love the way you have displayed it. I have a similar sized project nearly finished, and think I'll just drape it over the first thing that I see in my house that needs a little "hit" of colour.

  3. Hi Anja! Oh, I think these colors look beautiful . . . and if they're not reading correctly, I can only imagine how beautiful they are in person. What a great test for the pattern - I just really love the dark forest green with the gold. I can hardly wait to see what you chose for the larger piece. Happy New Year! ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. What great movement in the quilt design, and the quilting really accents it, well done! I'll come back and see your other finish :). Thanks for linking to TGIFF!

  5. I love the quilting, it suits this piece perfectly.

  6. Great little quilt! I love the green and gold against the white background, but I'm a Packers fan. Truly, the colors look great already, but I share your desire for spring and more daylight. Now that 2018 is over, I say bring on that warm weather! Perfect quilting to accent this piece, too!

  7. It looks great. I really like the colours you used and the quilting.

  8. This is a great design by Tish and I love your quilting on it!

  9. I have to quilt mine up yet and time is running out FAST. I just love how yours turned out Anja!
