Another finish!

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.

Size – 54″ square
Number of blocks – n/a
Time to make– an hour of prep and positioning stuff, five hours of quilting and three hours of slow binding and adding a sleeve – 9 hours
Fabric – Scraps shredded into oblivion and Klona white
Backing Fabric – Some heavy weight Ikea stuff
Binding Fabric – More Klona
Threads – Coats Moon, plus Superior Threads monofilament
Batting – 80/20 Soft and Elegant
Quilting- Vertical matchstick over the scraps but 1″ wider apart on the plain edges.


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!

    Your quilt is lovely, and it is an interesting technique. I am sorry about Sewvivor.

    Awww. I can’t believe it! I didn’t know you two were out. Unreal that Billy Bass didn’t get you through. Anyway, congrats to Marci on the giveaway win. Love the wall hanging. I must give that a try some time.

    Sorry about Sewvivor. I love the quilt. I’ve used this technique before but on smaller projects, I wasn’t sure it would work on a larger scale. It’s nice to be proved wrong xxx

    Commiserations for the sewvivor contest. I was sure you would get through to the next round and I was looking forward to seeing what you had in mind.
    Lucky Marci for winning the giveaway.
    I must give that technique a go sometime. Lovely colours.

    That looks like so much fun – I’ve never thought to try and chopping fabric up into confetti but have plenty of scraps I could have a go at with the rotary. I though Billy Bass was great – probably never heard of him in the states before this!

    Can you show a closer shot of this? Or link to something that shows how it’s done? It’s beautiful but I’m not sure I exactly get how it’s done.

    I voted for you and Marci. So sorry to hear the judges don’t share my taste for sewn fish 🙁 I love your hundreds and thousands quits. I hadn’t realised confetti quilts were sandwiched under tulle 🙂

    Pretty cute, i like it! And what a bummer about Sewvivor, it was the most imaginative idea in my opinion, next time! :o)

    like your sprinkles quilt – what a great idea ! can’t believe that you were knocked out of the comp – I agree with ange – your billy was so creative and original – I LOVED him !!

    Such a shame about Sewvivor 🙁 Lovely new quilt though – love the technique. Looks like a good one for Little One’s to try?!

    That fish still blows my mind.

    that is just fab! And the Sewvivor judges know nothing.

    oh, and don’t be sad about Sewvivor, I’m just reading the post now and her use of apostrophes is appalling.

    Great use for scraps and proof of why we should never throw anything away!
