Fiesta Fireworks Quilt – All Finished

I think now I can officially call this quilt finished! After starting it at Pigeon Forge and working on it some more when I got home and thinking it was finished, … I decided to cut off the binding, trim the quilt and bind it again. Now I really am finished.

I originally made this quilt for a challenge with the theme CELEBRATION.
Fiesta Fireworks-f

It measures 39”X41.” (Oh dear. English teachers, does the period come after the inches symbol or before the inches symbol?) 

It’s made from cotton fabric and overlaid with black tulle with glitter.

Kirby and Stacy came today and played with Ashton. They helped me with the photo shoot.

Hi, Julia,
When I saw your earlier post thinking about taking some off the sides of this quilt for a particular show, I disagreed--but only for making it eligible for that show. I did think cropping was needed to eliminate the black areas of incomplete circles; I also thought it needed a black binding. You have improved the quilt greatly by these two actions! I say make the quilt you want to make and then find a show for it to enter.

Oh, yes, what a great opportunity to show off those cute little boys, too!
P.S. You did it right. . .periods and commas go inside quote marks says the old legal secretary in me.

I was a little skeptical when you last said you wanted to trim your quilt, but it looks great!

Quilt looks good. I hope you win the contest.

I've often wondered about the period and quotation marks too. Now I know. Hope I can remember.

Gorgeous and brave cutting off the binding. I love bright colors on black like that.
