Blue Confetti was one of the first quilts that Cindy made using the freehand curves, no patterns, no templates, cutting method. Cindy says, "In true improvisational style, I had no idea what the finished quilt was going to look like, beyond having four quadrants that create a bullseye effect. Some of the curves are broken up with inset spines so I could add more colors. The confetti squares in the corners, inspired by an oversized confetti canister I saw in a stage play, add unique energy to the final composition."
