Quilter's Tile - Fireworks
8" x 8"

In a few short days, we will be celebrating July 4th, Independence Day. I always look forward to the fireworks so I thought I would use this as a theme for this week's quilter's tile. With red, white and blue in mind, I chose this unlikely combination of fabrics. These small tiles are a place to try things to see if they will turn out good or bad.
I cut and fused bursts of red fireworks.
Standing by the iron and before I quilted, I am putting on a fused binding. One side is cut straight and the second side is cut with a wavy blade in my rotary cutter.
The wavy edge is finger pressed to the front of the quilt.
The binding is folded over to the back.
A steam press fuses the binding in place.
Happy Independence Day to All!
