The first week's challenge is "confetti".
At first I was going to nope right out of this one when I first saw what the challenge was. How could I come up with something spectacular, which having seen past challenges I know others will come up with, in a week? With no extra materials?
Then I remembered this wasn't about winning or even making something jawdropping. It was about seeing the process through from start to finish and to help me reclaim more of my creativity and ability to just make things.
Yes, I want to push myself, but not to a point I can't find joy in what I'm doing.
So yesterday I had a brainstorm and I just let myself go with it.
I overthought everything, but that's OK.
Confetti calls to mind celebrations which to me means weddings, babies, birthdays and get togethers. So my quilt was going to have elements of all of those things.
There are Cathedral Windows, prairie point windmills, and lots of colour all in a baby mat that begs to be touched with lots of texture and flippy bits. I love seeing confetti in the wind so I love how much movement is in the top, especially around the center.
I've named it "You Belong"
The quilt is 30" square and used a charm pack of Simply Color,and some left over black Bella solids charms.
