I am very happy to present you with my finished Confetti Forest quilt. I long wanted to do a quilt with triangles only, and here it is now.

Unlike the placemats I finished earlier, I hand quilted this piece. I echo quilted the seams on the triangles’ long sides, so there was no need for marking which I always prefer.

This is a shot of the back, on which I had to wait for the fabric four long weeks. It is a 104 inches wide tan paisley that I like very much indeed.

As a binding, I would have preferred to use the same fabric I used for the placemats but unfortunately I ran out of this one. I bought a similar one, though not quite what I wanted but in the end I like it all the same.

I was visiting my parents when finishing the quilt. And as you always forget at least one item when sewing out, I made no exception this time—and forgot to bring a piece of white lace which I always add as my label. However, there was no white lace to be found in my mom’s considerable sewing supplies, so I ordered her to quickly crochet one. (Really, I think it was her own fault. Not having a teeny tiny snippet of white lace but having at once white yarn and a crochet hook at hand …) And so she worked on that while I joined the binding strips and sewed it on the quilt. She was just ready in time when I finished the forth side and needed it.

Confetti Forest perfectly fits in any autumn garden now—the colours matching splendidly, don’t you think?
