Confetti Forest

Confetti Forest... I love that name. 
I wish I was the one that thought of it, but I didn't. It was the talented crew at McCall's Quilting that named my quilt. I couldn't have thought of a more perfect name for this quilt. Just the sound of it makes me think of fall and laying on a quilt, looking at the sky through the colorful leaves... Well scratch all that. That is what I think it should look like if I lived somewhere that actually had fall. We seem to go from Winter to Summer and not much in between. Yesterday it was 80 degrees, today it is 30.
I guess I can enjoy my "fall" quilt at the lake or snuggle under my "fall" quilt when the temperatures plunge. 
I combined two of my favorite lines, Persimmon by Basic Grey and Modern Neutral by Amy Ellis. But this is also a great scrap buster project.  The complete instructions and yardages can be found in the McCall's Quilting January/February 2015 issue.
