Confetti is an ode to curves. I challenged myself to work large, cutting curves freehand without using templates. In true improvisational style, I had no idea what the finished quilt was going to look like, beyond having four quadrants that create a bullseye effect. Some of the curves are broken up with inset spines so I could add more colors. The confetti squares in the corners, inspired by an oversized confetti canister I saw in a stage play, add unique energy to the final composition.
