Fireworks In Flight

Do you remember those dark velvet nights of summer when you were a child, the anticipation of Independence Day fireworks show? How about New Year’s Eve, Guy Fawke’s Day, Bastille Day, Chinese New Year? Do you remember those grand finale displays where they shoot up hundreds of pounds of explosives at the grand finale, while playing Sousa marches in time to the music? Remember?

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!
