    Since I'm still so new to quilting, I have many many techniques I want to try. This confetti wall hanging was a class I took at my LQS. Everyone did something totally different and it was easy and fun. I still have the last class to go and learn how to finish up. Can't wait to see all the other projects. I'm not sure I'll be making dozens of these, but it sure was fun to learn how. This is my dog Rosie. She is getting old and I wanted something to remember her by. Thanks for looking. (By the way, this is a great way to use itty bitty scraps!)

    BTW, is that technique from a book or pattern? I know you said it was from a class but I was hoping it was based on some published work.

    I love your dogs picture quilt! It's wonderful to learn of a new quilter willing to take a class that looks so difficult. Clapping for you-keep taking new and fun technique classes. Thank you for sharing with us all.

    You did a fantastic job! I'm sure the teacher would be proud of you. Who did you take the class from? I've only used that techinque once and for a much smaller purpose ( flowers ). What a lot of hard work. But what a great picture!

    Wow, you did a great job! Congratulations! I imagine it gets tiring snipping up the fabric.

    Ok, now I gotta keep all my itty bitty pieces so I can try that technique. That doggie is beautiful. What a wonderful way to keep a memory.

    Did you use a Cindy Walter book? I saw her demonstrate this on Simply Quilts years ago. Looks like it would be fun! But my bucket is overflowing. :)

    Wow--love it. I'm kinda new too at quilting and I am having such a good time learning everything. I try and take all the classes I can and also learn from seasoned sewers.
