Searching the shows for "confetti", found shows 1310 and 1706 cover the process.

I think that the technique you are thinking of has been described as 'confetti' quilts. I know that there was a show that demonstrated this, but I don't remember which one. However I am sure that it should come up in the show search listing. As far as I remember, lots of tiny pieces were placed down and then tulle placed over and then it was stitched to hold in place.

Hope that helps.

I am interested in making fabric that uses very small snippets of fabric to create shaded sections in a border for a quilt. I have watched show 1706 but these snippets are much more chunky than what I envision. Has anyone done this before. I know I have seen someone in the past who saved little bags of colored fabrics to blend together to make their gradations. However, I do not remember how it was finalized. Adhered with a heat process? Covered with tulle for instance and then quilted? Any suggestions? Thanks to all who may have some insight.
