Confetti Quilt

I finished this quilt several weeks ago and decided I need to show it off. It's a pattern from an old issue of AP& Q called Confetti. The pattern instructions said I should cut over 1,000 squares - NOT! LOL So, I sat and figured out how to strip piece the whole thing. I love to use fat quarter bundles; especially the ones from Moda. This is a line called Seaside Rose and because it was so light I couldn't decide what I should make with it - well I'm really happy with this quilt and probably should think about quilting it soon.

It's been a quiet week end. Spent some time working both days but for the most part I've been relaxing. I keep saying that I need to clean my playroom (sewing room) but just not motivated. LOL.

Thought for today: My heart is fed by needle and thread

Gratitudes:
Quiet days
My ability to sew and truly enjoy it
E-mails from friends (new and old)

1,000 squares! Yikes! Very smart of you to figure out your own, faster way of doing it. Those are pretty colors. You need to give it its own name. Sherbet delight or seaside gathering.

That is pretty - I'm also for finding easier ways to piece quilts. Not sure why the directions are sometimes more complicated than they need to be.
