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.

Confetti Fun

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.

Festive Confetti


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.

      Hi Chris,
      Thanks so much! It was fun to make once we got the math for the strips correct after three or four attempts. Duh! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I love everything about the Confetti quilt, especially the background fabric, such a perfect print if you don’t want to use solid white. BTW, do you live in Illinois, the Grayslake fabric purchase caught my eye since I live in McHenry County.

      Hi Rose! I live in SE Wisconsin (Sturtevant) but I have family very near you. My sister lives in Woodstock, my nephew in Huntley and a niece in Fox Lake. I also work in Glencoe so I’m in IL every day. Small world isn’t it?! Thank you so much for your kind comment. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Oh that’s so pretty – and an adorable baby that I think would absolutely love it!!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Carie! Thanks so much – we might have to make a special one just for him that is more boy-orientated. Twist my arm – HAHA. Thanks for your visit and comment. I appreciate it so much. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I really love the quilt. The back looks great and I love the design. I am interested in knowing where I can obtain the pattern for this quilt.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Pat! The pattern is called Leftovers, and I would think that Sew ‘n Save in Racine might have it. I’d give them a call! I didn’t know you were going to get into quilting! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I love this quilt! It looks so fun. The back was a perfect choice with those cute triangles.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Shannon! Thanks so much – it’s always nice to hear someone else agrees with a fabric choice. Sometimes you wonder . . . I appreciate your visit and comment. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Such a fun quilt; I just love it. And that red quilting really pops!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Sarah,
      I debated using the red thread since it seems I cannot sew a straight line even when following right next to the ditch. But in the end it won out because it is just the best color. HAHA Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. What a bright and happy quilt! Well done.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Carole,
      That you so much! I think it is going to end up being a Dominic quilt . . . we need to spoil him. ~smile~ Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. Roseanne
