But, as a teaser, today is sneak peak day!
First up, is my primary Little Firecracker quilt. When last I posted about this quilt, I had just finished all of the blocks.
I also shared this finished preview shot of the quilt top on Instagram a while back:
And by "a while back" I mean April. I need to up my organization -- good thing Santa might be bringing me a Quilter's Planner!
Since I want to try to get *BOTH* of my Little Firecracker quilts done by Thanksgiving (if not earlier!) getting both of them quilted was my big project for my solo retreat weekend. AND I SUCCEEDED! I'll be sharing all about my secondary Little Firecracker's progress in a separate post since I hardly took any pictures of that one in progress - it needs a little attention of its own!
On the primary Little Firecracker quilt, I did a branching curl design.
For the backing, I used a three yard cut of a large stripe border print in navy and green (a little traditional but matches the quilt perfectly) pieced with a pink and red leaf print on white. I strongly considered buying flannel for these quilts, but with the odd size (55 inches square) I would end up with a lot of backing waste so I opted to use older large cuts in my stash for both quilts. Pictures coming in the finished post!
For the binding, I used a dot print with a dark red background with multi colored dots that coordinate with my quilt colors. I started hand stitching the binding to the back during the Walking Dead on Sunday night but didn't make a ton of progress.
In other news, I am starting idea-gathering for a quilt along next year. If you have opinions and suggestions on what you would like to see or do in a quilt along here at Little Bunny Quilts, please share those in the comments! I love to hear what people are thinking!
