Default 'Allium' - a confetti art quilt

Hi all - here's a little (12") square art quilt I just finished. I used the confett technique to make the allium then embellished with FMQ and beads. It was really fun to do and I will definitely be doing more confetti. I put a step by step guide to how I did it on my blog if anyone wants to give it a try. Thanks for looking...

I forbid you to call them UFOs as that implies you won't finish them - call 'em WIPs, that's what I do!

Fantastic technique!!! I love it. The way you used the green and purple thread really makes the quilting stand out. The beads would make it shimmer.
What about your mandala quilt, is that still a WIP or is it a UFO
