When I find time to do what I want, with no deadlines or pressure, self imposed or otherwise, I like to revisit previous projects. How can I make it different or better? Do I really need to change it up? Is it even worth the trouble? Can I take it to another level?
When I first made my Confetti Pillow Cover, there was a lot of interest in it. Honestly, I liked that...a lot! It feels really weird saying that! I have always wanted to give this design another go, I know there is something more I can do with it.
For the past week I have been plotting, cutting, stitching and piecing. There is a plan in mind, however it changes with each completed block!
As of today, I have five blocks. One that I am sure I will not use, as it was my first and I was just playing around. While I would like to call this my Alison Glass quilt, I don't thing you get that Abacus 'Artifact' by looking at this!
Especially this side, which is the back and basically is just like the front. I am mesmerized by the seams, can I say perfection?! The squares are 1/2" finished and believe me when I say it isn't easy getting the rows to line up perfectly!
I started out with a whole lotta these pieces, specific measurements, a huge variety of solids and Kona Snow.
And ended up with a whole lotta of this! I'm going to say it! I love seeing this, I love taking pictures of scraps!
I'm a huge fan of what I like to call 'Quilt Porn'. To me this is quilt porn, I cannot get enough of it! Grab your camera, zoom in and snap!
A warn and fuzzy feeling washes over me when I see something like this! Seriously, is this not an amazing shot?!
I would love to have a regular feature of 'Quilt Porn' on my blog or even a link up! Am I the only one who gets a little excited seen shots like this? Would you link up? Or maybe to start out, would you send me pictures to feature on my blog? Just wondering!
It may be a while until I figure this Confetti Quilt out, but it sure is fun to play once in a while!
