These next Photos I want to share are from my cell phone. Most were taken very late at night or in the early morning before the sun came up so the lighting isn't great, but they tell a great story of the quilt's Creation.
The idea for the quilt formed gradually. I definitely wanted to use tiny pieces so I settled on that pretty quick. I contemplated using small pieces to make a mosaic picture but I didn't want to have a lot of raw edges. Then I thought about making a quilt that looked like confetti had landed on it, but dismissed that idea because I wanted to create something more organized. But confetti isn't organized so I was stumped. In my mind I threw a handful of confetti and watched it fall trying to come up with an idea. My mind drifted to a piece of artwork my daughter made with crayons and a blow dryer. I knew right then I wanted to create a fabric Version of her piece.
I think I might try another Rainbow quilt with rectangles in the future.
I put a sheet of wonder under with black fabic on it in the printer and printed out my couple. I was excited about how well it printed out that I forgot to take a photo of that step.
After the couple was trimmed and ironed on, it was time for quilting vertical lines.
I finished at 11:00 pm Saturday night and took an outside phot this morning.
