This quilt is made with a confetti technique of slicing a bunch of scraps to hell and then catching them in a net of tulle. I’ve called it Hundreds and Thousands because the little slices look like cake sprinkles. It’s wall hanging size so I’ve popped a sleeve on the back. Once it’s been published, it will go into my Etsy shop. I need to remember to put Mr Bowie in there soon too.

In other business, I’ve drawn the winner for the fat quarter bundle giveaway! It’s my fellow Sewvivor contestant Marci – we’ve both been knocked out of this round (I think Billy Bass might have been a bit too crass for more discerning tastes) so it’s nice of Mr Random to choose her!
