    Thanks for sharing the information so patiently so far! I am also looking forward to the video. I have collected many colors of tulle for use in art quilts and am curious, do you prefer the white or do like the results you have had if you have tried other colors. I would think you only get one really perfect chance to set the tulle on top of the confetti so you better like it (seems like picking it up again would disturb the arrangement too much).

    Those "pictures" are amazing! I especially like the dog picture. I've been throwing my small pieces of fabric away; now I have a reason to save them. Thank you!

    I do understand how this is done and I'm not going to wait for the video, but it did open our eyes to a whole new way to quilt. This seems easy for the beginner too, no piecing just trace, chop, drop ( per say) and meander LOVE LOVE LOVE it.Thank you

    I suppose what I really need to know what size of fabric would you chop up for a usable amount of confetti.


    Lesley, I went online and checked out Noriko's technique for Confetti Quilts and it has a great video showing all the steps of this process and I think it will answer a lot of your questions about the process. :-D

    I love your Confetti Quilts and checked out Noriko's technique online and I have to say I think this is just the things for all of us frustrated artist that can't draw a straight line. I've always wanted to paint but knew I was not good canidate for a paint brush and canvas. Sharing your new techique gives me hope that maybe still can create a picture from some of my photo's just sitting around. Thank you so much for sharing this technique with us. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    This technique is on my to-do list. I want to do a lpicture of a pheasant this way, one day. Yours and your students' pics are very inspiring. And when I get round to this, it will justify why I kept all those teeny tiny scraps that my DH jokes I have labelled 'too small to use' :lol: I'm an organisational freak and label everything! :mrgreen:

    Thanks for the compliment but I hold the belief that the more people that see this, the more people will want to learn it and they will tell someone, who will tell someone else, etc. I am making a video that I will rent over the internet for $2.99 for those that need a few extra pointers.
    I definitely am interested in your video. Can't wait to see it in action. You do a wonderful job!

    Videographer just left. What a cutie! He loves my crazy busy room. Little does he know that I cleaned a stashed for 3 days!! Even my lighting is great, who knew? Now I go make all the samples, the many, many samples. What fun. He said it will probably be 2 weeks to final product. I don't think I will be able to wait that long. What fun. Next Wens. we film! Probably too late to loose 50 pounds, huh? LOL, I am already thinking about the next video after this. Hmmmm....

    You are too funny. I can't wait either. How am I going to keep my studio tidy for 5 days? I will have to work out on the deck!

    So, today is work through the video outline day and figure out how many samples I need. Thank goodness I have watched all the quilting DIY shows. Don't they all have assistants? I am sure that Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims do not make their own samples. They must have assistants....hmmm, now where can I get an assistant? I wonder what my sister is doing? hmmm...

    I can't wait to see the result either! Why, oh why didn't I loose that 50 pounds like I swore I would on New Year's Day? Oh well, I've lost 20 and that's a good start. And speaking of samples, do y'all have any idea how many it takes to film a 1 hour video? I have not appreciated the people who made videos before me. Thank you to all those people, those assistants everywhere that cranked out the samples. My assistants haven't shown up yet. LOL
