The first challenge on this season of Project Quilting is confetti. I had lots of ideas for this one right from the start. I could make a cover for my art journal, a fun hat, an I-spy baby quilt, or a tote bag. Confetti could be happy, something to celebrate, exuberance, or a messy nuisance. There’s so much you can DO with this word!
Well, I ended up coming down with the flu and landed myself in bed for days on end. Ick. Still, I whipped up this little card by hand and can call this one done. It’s raw-edge applique that’s fused onto card stock then sewn through to finish. I left it pretty generic so I can send it out for any occasion, though I write thank you cards the mostest. I art in SoCal and this little card measures 4×6 folded up. And yes, art is now a verb. ‘Cause I say so.
Lost your quilting mojo? Sometimes smaller projects with tight deadlines are super helpful in getting it back.
Project Quilting (PQ) is a series of one-week challenges. Season seven starts on January 3rd. Check out the full calendar here. Post your completed projects and win random drawings for prizes. Vote for your favorites and win viewer’s choice. One week to create, another to vote, then another challenge begins. There are six challenges per season.
I’ve participated before and am looking forward to getting back into the groove of sewing. Here’s what I’ve made in previous seasons.
