Almost Done!

I think I will name this quilt, "Confetti".  It looks like confetti spilled on the floor doesn't it.  I was talking with Diane and she asked me the name of the pattern.  This is one of those quilts that is a technique, not really a pattern.  It is inspired by the quilt, "Joseph's Coat of Many Colors", a quilt made by an artist from Gee's Bend.  Molly Flanders had posted one on her blog (also very scrappy) but my technique is slightly different from the one she outline.  It isn't really hard, but is certainly tedious.   You MUST make sure you have a consistent 1/4 inch seam, and your logs MUST be the same size!----Don't ask me how I know.  The hardest part (I think) is joining the rows.  As with all my quilts, I am making this one to fit a queen-size bed (the original was a crib quilt and made by hand I think), so I need about twelve more rows!  I am NOT going to work on anything else until this is done!!!!!!  It is made from nothing but scraps, and I plan to piece the back from some of my hand dyes.  I originally worked really hard to make sure I didn't have like fabric's close together, now I am not trying quite so hard :)!
