Confetti Quilt is Finished
It is complete. Done. Finished. And it almost has the honor of being one of the easiest quilts we have ever made. I shared all the details in the last post called Confetti a.k.a. Leftovers Baby Quilt in case you’d like to read about it. It was easy except for the math part! The pattern is called Leftovers but we used the main fabric called Confetti (Confetti Basics by RJR Fabrics 2006), and that name stuck.
As I mentioned above, the math portion of this almost did me in. Add six numbers together, figure in the seam allowances and make it be 22 inches in length. You would think that would be easy. Not so much for this old person. Oh well! It was all uphill after that part.
Yeah, try and get pictures in stiff winds. But cloudy days sure make the colors pop and look realistic. I’ll have to remember that! I quilted it with my good ole walking foot. I used red thread (Gutermann) and stitched in the ditch next to each colored strip. Then the other lines were 1.5″ apart from those strips. We had enough “leftovers” in the multicolored strips to sew them together for the binding.
We found the most perfect backing for this quilt in a cute little Grayslake, IL quilt shop. Isn’t it just the best??
I couldn’t tell you the name of it though . . . forgot to look at the salvage. One last photo of it all folded on the kitchen island:
The colors just aren’t as good as when they are highlighted in nature. I can’t decide if this should go in our Etsy shop or if a certain new baby should have it . . . In case you didn’t see the announcement earlier this week, here’s Dominic John in his tiebreaker uniform:
Be still my heart. ~smile~ I expect more boy-leaning quilts in our VERY near future.
