July's Color Adventure From Alaska~


Ever get an idea that you really want to try,
but it challenges your brain..
a lot?


For my July block, I wanted to make something resembling
fireworks.
The way they shoot in the middle,
then radiate out.

After some playing around,
and lots of little blocks,
this is what I came up with.


I made my triangles by stitching around the squares,
and cutting diagonally in both
directions.
It is an easy way to make four identical ones.


I cut, pressed and trimmed all of the sections..


then arranged them for piecing.


 Two Firework blocks for July!

One has been delivered to Oregon 
before this posting.....

  1. It's a great block. I love the tiny blue/green triangles contrasting with the white in the center.
