Scrap Vomit or Confetti?

Just a quick one as I steal a few moments away from packing. We leave early tomorrow morning for an overseas adventure, which will hopefully include a white Christmas! So do not be alarmed if you don't hear from me for a while - I'll be too busy throwing snowballs with my family and eating fresh pretzels!

I finished Eli's quilt just in time for his birthday and he loves it. That makes me immensely happy. My heart was filled with joy as I watched him roll around in his new quilt.
I made the top using 2.5" squares from a swap, as well as my own uglies from my scrap bins. You could play 'I Spy' with it for hours! I bound the quilt with a dotty fabric and quilted it with a large stipple. I love this quilt - it is very forgiving when it comes to matching up points. In fact, after about 6 blocks of 49 squares, I didn't really bother too hard to match up the points!
For the back I used 5 fat quarters of gnome fabric, bordered each of them with red and surround it all with a Moda grey (I know, very technical details!).
How cute are all these gnomes?

So, would you call this a scrap vomit quilt or a confetti quilt? Or something else?


  1. Personally, although I think the term scrap vomit is amusing, I don't think it really does justice to the beauty and happiness of a scrappy quilt. Scrappy quilts are often my very favorites, and this one is really fun! I love the term confetti!

  2. Those gnomes are so funny!! I think of Scrap Vomit quilts being the pattern by Ginger Monkey which is like this but has alternate blocks with the squares pieced to make a pattern so I'd call this a Confetti quilt, plus it's a fun name that sounds like a party.

  3. A quilt filled with such fun and whimsy has to be a Confetti quilt!! The red spot binding adds a final smile to your gorgeous quilt!! Have the best holiday in your 'Winter White Wonderland" and a lovely, lovely Christmas!!

  4. "Scrap vomit" sounds ugly and this is most definitely NOT ugly - confetti quilt it is!! You'll be on your way as I type this, but have a great holiday and a merry Christmas. Bet you'll be itching to get back to the sewing machine by the time you get back!! :-) <3

  5. I love it! Scrap quilts are the best, and somehow the fabrics look right even if they are fabrics you may not have thought to put together in another pattern or quilt. I admire your patience in cutting and assembling all these squares! Great result, Jeneta :)

  6. Fabulous! Happy Birthday to Eli!
