A Darlings Confetti Quilt


A little earlier this year a Fat Quarter Bundle of Darlings came my way - actually it wasn't by chance or sent to me but from a friend who had purchased it at Spring Market for me.  
Darlings is the "re-boot" collection by Ruby Star Society of all their old favourites which you have had in your stash previously but now brought to you by Moda Fabrics.  So if you have seen a few of these prints before and wondered these are not new - you are not crazy to think you have seen these before.


When I got the Darlings Collection in my hand - I do admit to being somewhat well outside my comfort zone.  There were lots of colours I don't use alot and prints that I wasn't immediately drawn to.  However after a little bit, I untied the beautiful black and gold embossed ribbon to reveal colours and designs that I was now finding a new love for.   And then I was absolutely smitten.


The characters and designs are just gorgeous. There are Tigers, Mustangs, Eggs, Hedgehogs, Octopi, Strawberries, Stars, Tangram shapes and Thistles among theses new colour ways.  Along with the most spectacular metallic accents in golds, pinks and rose gold - I mean seriously the metallic prints are some of my favourite in the collection.


While it tool me a little bit to work out as soon as I realised that these Darlings were calling to be made into a Confetti Quilt  - then I was cutting and sewing like no tomorrow. 


And you guys know that I take matching my nails to my work very seriously right!


While working on this Quilt I took a little video that shows my Continuous Corner Binding Technique that I always love sharing with you.  You can check out the FULL Tutorial here.


And nothing beats a little location shoot - I actually travelled away to Melbourne just after having made this Darlings Confetti Quilt.  These pics were snapped by my sister @felicitystylesphotography while down at the beach in Torquay.



This Confetti Quilt was so much fun to make.  I love the Zip fabric I used for the Binding (by Rashida Coleman for Ruby Star Society) which I cut on the Bias to get the stripe to run in that direction.



Darlings ships to stores in November so get ready friends for the cutest characters in town.

Big thanks to Tracey Berkmortel Photography for all the amazing Studio Shots.

Happy Quilting
