This is our new jelly roll quilt – called FIRECRACKER!  It is part of our modern reversible jelly roll quilt patterns.  We used an Amish jelly roll coupled with a dark border.  The back of the quilt is made up of all the offcuts so there is no wastage! We have Firecracker available as a pattern and as a quilt kit.  You do need a 60 degree ruler to make this quilt which most people have but if not then they are a worthwhile investment.

We took a long time deciding on what quilting design we should do.   After much deliberation we chose a loopy figure of eight – a simple modern quilting pattern.  We went for a smokey grey thread so it showed up on the borders but blended in with the main quilt top making the quilting less intrusive.

This quilt is suitable for advanced beginners/intermediate quilters.  It’s a fun quilt to make and so vibrant with the plain colourways.  It will make a fantastic Xmas present!!
