A Little Scrappy....


I am making progress on "Confetti" - and as much as I like to rename my quilts, so far the name of the pattern seems to be the most apt name for this project.

This was a picture of a few blocks laid out on Shellie's living room floor - she has lots more room than I do. I had not yet finished all of the components but wanted to show her what it would look like.

Since then I have those empty gaps filled and have started assembling the rows and a few of the setting triangles. It's a big quilt - and I have a long way to go.

This top will form the top side of a duvet cover -more details on that to follow as the project progresses.

Lots and lots and lots of 2" scraps! All tied together with 2" wide rectangles -and then set with lots and lots and lots of triangles.

There are pieces of so many things in there - hubby's favorite shirt, bits of our wedding quilt and the Munchkin's baby quilt, leftovers from totes, quilts, lunch bags, curtains and every other project you can imagine, scraps gifted to me from others - I am sure with stories to tell of their own. There are even some Wonderland scraps in there! :-) It will be fun "remembering."

I like all the colors, and a good use for 2" scraps.
