Can you create a Fireworks Quilt?

Posted by Linda Schmidt on 16 February 2017 | 0 Comments


My new class, Fireworks in Flight, is coming around very soon! This is a very cool class filled with starbursts and sparks, crystals and thread-play. Come play with me!

You start out by making some practice fireworks,

creating either San Francisco, a city of your choice, or just a plain black background,

then designing your fireworks display in whatever color scheme suits your fancy. You will play with threads and fibers, foil glue and foil glitter, Misty Fuse or a fusible webbing of your choice, to create your own, inimitable fireworks display.... then add fusible crystals to make the whole thing sparkle!

This is truly a memorable quilt, and the original has already won 2 ribbons for Best Embellishment (at the Pacific International Quilt Show, & Best of the Valley Quilt Show,) Best of Show and Judge’s Choice at the Alameda County Fair, and Third Place at the Road to California Show!

Come play with us!

About Fireworks in Flight: Let’s make a recreation of one of those nights with a dark black sky, your favorite city in the distance, with all the metallic threads and crystals and embellishments you never get to use on your day-to-day quilt projects. You will get to play with machine embroidery, fancy threads, foil glue and foil glitter, Angelina fiber, metallic thread snippets, Mistyfuse and more. First, you’ll make some samples, then create your own Fireworks Finale Masterpiece in your own colors and design, then quilt, embellish with crystals and beads, add piping and bind that into your own miniature fireworks explosion. Come on, let’s make Skyrockets in Flight! Read more....
