Enter...Confetti. The long awaited premier of a design that I have played with, swooned over and yes...finally completed!
42" x 54"
I was inspired to try again when I saw 'Artifact' by Alison Glass. It seemed like a perfect compliment to Confetti. So I set out to incorporate her design into mine. Personally, I felt it was a perfect fit.
There are bits and pieces of Artifact throughout this quilt. Why go to all that trouble? Good question! I like to improve on a design, try and make it better. Perfection is always a goal. Something we all strive for.
This quilt isn't perfect, but it's better than the last time I tried! It has it's wonky moments, that's for sure. I even tried taking extra time to mark, measure and stitch. I learned early on that it wasn't going to happen.
And I learned that it wasn't going to matter. Perfectly imperfect. There is something beautiful about imperfection.
The backing is all Allison Glass Artifact. Now that's perfect! I tried really hard to line up the front of the quilt with the backing when I basted it. With a little extra time and a hell of a lotta luck...it lined up!
I knew early on that I would straight line quilt it. I like the grid design and think it works well with the design. And really...Alison Glass said so too!
I couldn't resist a few 'cheese cake' shots, you know... centerfold worthy shots! How about that little rainbow star?!
Playing with shadows. When you can't get out and find a location to shoot your photos, the next best thing is playing shadows. You can get some interesting shots!
