When I shared this little Firecracker quilt block last week on social media, I had no idea others would be interested. It was just a cute block that I put together to celebrate the 4th of July but so many of you reached out.

So, it is this weeks latest addition to the Blocks 2 Quilt series.

The Firecracker ice pop was a summertime tradition growing up. The sweet and sticky pops would always melt before being finished. Plus, let’s not forget the telltale sign of the bright blue lips it left behind.

Like the other blocks included in my Blocks 2 Quilt series, this patchwork quilt block is easy to make, requires no special tools or templates, and utilizes strip piecing. To show you just how easy, I put together this quick video.

There are a few smaller sized pieces required on the 6″ finished block so please keep that in mind when sewing.
