Ticker Tape

I weirdly and randomly had a dream about making a ticker tape quilt a couple weeks ago so I decided to try it out using this tutorial. I'm not sure how much I love raw edges in quilts, but I liked the fact that you're quilting it and "piecing" it all at once and it was a good way to use scraps! It's doll-quilt sized but I made it to fill a blank space on the wall in our pantry. Fun quick project!

    Your scraps are a thing of beauty. This is adorable. I can't remember ever having had a crafty dream. It's pretty cool that you followed through with your dream/vision.

    HA. My original comment (which I edited immediately after I posted it) ommitted the first letter in the second word. How's that for potty talk?

    I wouldn't have thought I would like this construction method but you might be changing my mind.

    I love this! It's the perfect way to display bits of your favorite and nearly gone fabric. I have loads of teeny scraps, I can't bear to throw them away if there's a good graphic on it.

    I love this! I think it's so wonderful that the quilting world accepts "non-traditional" works of art. It has truly given me freedom to create wonky works. Thanks for sharing!!
