My original pattern for the issue is a quilt that I decided to name "Confetti". I was itching to make something with my friend Aneela's Sherbet Pips line for Moda, and was thrilled to discover that the colors coordinate beautifully with some of the prints from Basic Grey's Blush line. (Some of these prints are getting hard to find -- trust me, I'm trying! -- so try to score some if you like the way they look with the Pips, like I do.)
Why "confetti"? Well, the design that emerged as I cut up charm squares into alternating sizes of rectangles and squares reminded me of confetti falling down against the backdrop of the Blush prints. Plus, it's just a really fun quilt, and there aren't many words more fun to say or spell than confetti!
As you can see in the picture above, I backed the quilt in a solid charcoal Kona fabric, my first time making a quilt with a solid backing. I quite like it. I also quilted this large throw quilt myself, keeping it simple with some straight horizontal lines.
I'm SO happy to report that this quilt is already getting lots of love and use in our home, jumping from one kid's bed to another!
