Sue Spargo posted this lovely quilt last July, but I was struck by the quilting today while browsing for inspiration. Click on the picture below to go to the original post – then click on her picture for an enlargement – it’s the second to last quilt in her post. And if you click on the quilt picture one more time, it will enlarge further, so you can see how each square was quilted.
Last month, Caroline distributed fabric to make confetti blocks, but she discovered when making a pieced sample that she could get a similar look just by raw-edge appliquéing the confetti pieces onto the background. She asked us to leave a ¼” raw edge, so the material would fray in the wash.
I took a creative step and overlapped some of the pieces. She had some precious scraps of an elephant batik to highlight.
This month Jaime asked us to make a pieced confetti block, using a white background. Her sample though used a gorgeous Moda Solid (not Bella). We’re all looking in our stashes for more “Solids by Moda” taupe, because she doesn’t have enough to finish her quilt. Each square takes a fat quarter.
Here’s my version! You’ll notice some of the same fabrics as we used in the wonky star quilt.
