It's done. After years of happy time together (almost eight years to the day that we bought the fabric) I said goodbye to Confetti and passed it on to it's rightful owner, Stephanie, but with mixed feelings. It's sort of like getting to the end of a good book that you would rather not end. Maybe that's why it's taken me so long to wrap it up.
This one is a real milestone for me - it's totally hand stitched and hand quilted, the first and only of my quilts that I can say that about. Usually the quilting gets done by the ladies at the church or, in the past, by mom.
I just love the fabrics in this one and never tired looking at the different combinations.
And I found a great fabric for binding. It's just a tad darker than the background fabric, almost like a latte, and it works beautifully without taking away from the other colours.
Here's a full view. It's a simple block - the fabrics really make it. The photo that I worked from initially is long gone but the colours were much stronger, even more scrappy and very 1970s, a very different feel than this.
Stephanie has recently retired. She's an early bird by nature but maybe this will provide some incentive to hit the 'snooze' button and roll over for a few extra minutes the odd morning....M
