It's time for the annual Blogger's Quilt Festival! Amy @Amy's Creative Side is the host and always puts on a great show! If you are looking for inspiration, you'll find it here! I've participated the past few years and it's always an event I enjoy!
It's also a time where we can go back, look at the quilts we've made thus far, and relive the moment!
The quilt that makes me go 'you did what?', is 'Confetti'. I'm entering this quilt in the ORIGINAL DESIGN Category.
42" x 54"
Each square measures 1/2"...and that's the finished size! It helped to break down the quilt in blocks. Which made lining up the squares a little easier.
I used bits of the 'Artifact' throughout the front and on the back. I tried so hard to line up the front of the quilt with the backing when I basted it. Much to my shock and surprise it was nearly perfect!
The paper pieced star was an element I couldn't resist adding! It played perfectly with the Confetti and of course...fits well with 'Artifact'!
A few quilt facts:
Background Fabric: Kona Snow
Binding: Kona Pepper
Star: Kona Pepper
Backing: Alison Glass ~ Artifact
There are a total of 608 ~ 1/2" squares in a zillion colors!
To me...totally worth every single second!
