Quilt Bingo Confetti

Here is a quilt that I have donated to our guild's quilt bingo to be held in
October. It is called confetti and the small squares are all thirties
reproduction fabrics. This is the third one of these I have made. They are
really fun. The other two have beige backgrounds with scrap squares.
They use 1.5" by 5" scraps so can use up small pieces. See below for
the scrappy one. It is one of my favorites. The other I made using a
grayish beige background and gave it to my friend who lives in Paducah.
I took it to her when two of my friends and I stayed with her during
the Paducah quilt show. It is the kind of quilt gift that doesn't matter
about color or style. It can go in any decor. Her family loves it. I love the back of the blue one. It is a thirties cheater.
Here is a close up of the quilting. I did it all on my Bernina 153. I
experimented with freehand vines in the borders and the flower centers
are from a stencil. I have alot of thirties FQs left, mostly with pieces
cut out of them. So looks like there is another scrappy thirties quilt in
my future.

If you are interested in the Quilt Bingo e-mail me. It will be held in
Bowie, MD, October 14

Until next time...
