Yesterday and today were very good quilting days. All the kiddos took fabulous afternoon naps both days and the babies even took morning naps this morning for 1 1/2 hours. I got a lot done and was able to finish up this quilt. I love good nap days.
Once I discovered the technique for a stack & whack wonky block I decided I wanted to make a quilt. This started as a baby quilt for a friend, but I loved the colors so much that it grew to a twin size quilt for my daughter's bed when we move her out of her toddler bed. It was so fun and easy to make. I love how bright it is. When I look at the whole quilt it certainly looks like confetti to me. Now we just need a new bed. The quilt has a large variety of prints; I used only one square of each. The finished size is 66" x 88".
Check out my tutorial for my Stack & Whack Wonky Block.
I did pebble quilting on the white and scrappy borders and a loopy pattern on the rest of the quilt.
I pulled all my fabric colors from this particular fabric--Malibu in Pink from California Dreamin by Jenean Morrison. I love this fabric and might need to order a bit more before I can't find it anymore. I have been saving this 1/2 yd piece for something special.
This is one of the few quilts I have made with a plain backing--no piecing at all. I think I was just being lazy, but this will be a bed quilt so I wasn't as excited about piecing a backing. I am really liking the idea of using a sheet for quilt backing. I found this sheet at Ikea. The color was perfect.
I love the feeling of finishing a quilt. The hard part is choosing what to start on next. I have about five designs in my head right now. I'm not sure which one I will choose. There are just too many options out there.
