Confetti Cake

I'm in love with Moda's Layer Cake packs - 10" squares go a long way with very little left over. Almost feels like you've scraped the bowl clean. LOL This is my second Layer Cake project and I plan to work on another one very, very soon.

This pattern is called "Confetti Cake" by The Pattern Basket. Great instructions but I'd forgotten that this block and I do not get along. If you see me working on this block again on a future project please, please stop me! :-)

I'm hoping to spend more time in my sewing room again tomorrow. I hope you've been sewing, too.

Thanks for stopping by - come again soon!

In Friendship!

Very cute indeed Darlene, I love it. I can imagine why that block would drive you a little crazy, all those little triangles ...
Have a great weekend.

Yvonne said...

I love it!!!! Is it for ME???????

Catherine said...

That's gorgeous! The fabrics are fabulous.

Rose Marie said...

Love the top and will have to try out those layer cakes soon. I adore charm packs, so why not those as well.

Linda said...

Very pretty, had to laugh at Yvonne's comment. Silly woman she should have known it was for me. s*

Love it Darlene!!

This quilt is just adorable! I'm with you, I love those 10-inch-square packs, as well (or "dimes," as my LQS calls them)-- there always seems to be enough to put some punch into a quilt and not so much that you get tired of it. Your quilt looks just GREAT!

Erin said...

I love it! was it a lot of sewinga? thos little blocks..don't know if I would want to do that or not..

Knot Garden said...

That is beautiful, and I would never have guessed that you and that pattern don't get along! Great job.

Kathy Wagner said...

There's a lot of sewing in each of the blocks! It is so interesting how each block looks different depending on the fabric used.
It's a wonderful quilt Darlene!

Mad about Craft said...

Your quilt is beautiful!!

I've just bought Moda's 'Hemming House' Layer cake. I'm really looking forward to getting going with it.

Ginger Patches said...

Darlene it turned out beautiful...I just love it!!! I wonder if I could do something similar with my jelly roll of PP...hmmm. I'm glad you're getting time in your sewing room :)

Wendy said...

You beat me to it...I've had my eye on that pattern and your got it done. Great job and I'm glad you are back in your sewing room.

Hey I love that. Its so cute. And who doesn't love to use up every tiny piece of the fabric bought with hard earned money! I guess thats why I love scrap quilts so much. I feel like I'm being thrifty. Well, until my next trip to the quilt store. Love the quilt Darlene.

Lettie said...

Just beautiful! So many small pieces too. The fabric colors and combinations are great!
Aloha!

May Kristin said...

Another gorgeous quilt from your hands!

Cheryl said...

What a great quilt. I haven't tried the layers yet --- I am so over the top with charms and strips I am afraid to start another addiction!!!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

Darlene, love the quilt!!! Those colors are wonderful and go PERFECT in my house!!! Did I tell you my birthday is coming????

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh Darlene! I love this quilt! Why is the block so bad. It looks wonderful to me.

Carole said...

Looks sweet! I love it! Then again, we all know I'm bias! I love your work! Hugs!

Nicole said...

Ah ha! I DO remember asking you about that pattern when you made it ages ago. I loved it, and you warned me that it was very fussy. Isn't it called Memory Block or something similar? I must try it sometime, despite you warning against it TWICE!!! lol The results may be worth the trouble!

Nan said...

How lovely is that quilt? You put so much work into it, too! The fabric and pattern are perfect together!! All these silly girls that posted before me saying the quilt was for them??? Uh uh - we all know it was meant for MOI!!! Tee hee.......

Doe said...

Yet another gorgeous quilt! Loooove it!

Pam said...

It is a lovely quilt. I can imagine why those blocks and you don't get along -- I bet those blocks are a lot of work!! You did a great job on them.

swooze said...

Another great top!

Sweet P said...

That's a wonderful quilt. I can understand why this block would be tough. I like on point settings, but I don't know that I could handle that many blocks each set on point. Great job on it!

Thimbleanna said...

Man, is that ever a cute quilt Darlene. Sorry you don't like the block -- the end result sure seems worth it. And thanks for your wedding wishes for my little bride and groom!

Beautiful job on the quilt. I think I am going to order that pattern. I'll need to use more orange fabrics though.
