Fireworks Quilt, block 1

I couldn’t resist the new Thimble Blossoms patterns , and Fireworks is first on the list.  I’m using prints from the Liberty of London Bloomsbury Gardens collection.  This first block has me smiling!

There are a lot of little flying geese in this quilt, so as I was sewing I just drew a second line on each little square, half an inch closer to the corner of the block.

After I sewed the pieces together I went back and sewed on the second line.  When I cut the corners for the flying geese, I had 32 tiny half square triangles as well!

Surely they’ll make something fun when I’m done.  If I do this for all 16 blocks, I’ll have more than 500 tiny squares to play with.

Can’t wait to make more…

Have a great day, Jennifer P.S. Have you seen the Scrappy Swoon Quilt Along that’s getting underway?  I hope you’ll join in!

    Love your first block! I believe Bonnie Hunter has ideas for what to do with those “bonus triangles” I think she calls them. I’ve seen cute blocks and even a quilt made out of them 🙂

    I am making these squares using large 2 1/2″ squares but also 1 1/2″ squares too so large and small squares. I love this block couldn’t find the pattern so drew out my own. I didn’t make middle block solid it’s ( 4 ) 2 1/2″ squares. Next time I will use a solid square in middle. I ?? this pattern and will make a larger quilt for my bed.
