Solar Flare

Another finish this week, Solar Flare.
 This another from Ricky Tims' Convergence Quilts, (affiliate link) my Book of the Month for November.
The first quilt I did was Pink Lattice,
and I had so much fun with that one that I made a second!

The fabric for Solar Flare had red, yellow and blue in it, and this was the perfect project for this piece. 
I paired it with one red square and one blue, which gave the exploding look coming from the lower right.

At one point I wanted more yellow, and found a fabric that also had some red in it--perfect! 
Cutting 1" strips, I inserted those in between each strip, both vertically and horizontally.  Gave the quilt a bit of a 'looking through a lens' look.

This one has an all over design called Blast Off, of a rocket ship, star, and moon.  That way, I can give it to a child.  

And here's the back
If you haven't tried one of these convergence quilts, you should!  They are super fun!

Happy Quilting!



  1. very cool. Perfect quilting pattern. good job matching the binding to the pattern also.

  2. Great job on all of your Convergence quilts!! Love them - they are so much fun!!

  3. It looks like it was a lot of fun to create. I'll have to look up that book.

  4. I did some of these a while back, I need to get that book out again. I was tickled when Ricky Tims posted a comment on my blog, it was an OMG moment.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
