In March, my Mom and I attended a class by Ann Loveless on Confetti Quilts through the Mid Michigan Quilters’ Guild in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Ann Loveless has several types of art quilts that she creates, but this type of quilt is made up of 1″ squares of varying colors for the background of the quilt. The artist then builds the scene on top of this background. She helped us shape our picture, add the horizon line and taught us how she fuses the background.
I love doing landscape quilts and don’t get to do them very often, so this little 8″ x 10″ quilt was really fun and a great distraction from making my purses.
If you look closely the leaves are just small cuts from different shades of green fabric, and I used metallic thread in the water to help give it some movement.
I hope to do more of these more often in the future because they are so fun to make!
