I read and follow alot of blogs and I've noticed these "Ticker Tape" quilts and thought I would give it a try! I must say it was alot of fun. I just layered up my quilt sandwich and started sewing on pieces of fabric. It's a kind of "quilt as you go" process. No rules...just keep on adding fabic till you've filled up the area you have decided on. Once it was done and the binding was on I threw in the washer and dryer and the little frayed edges around each piece is so cute!! I made it 24" x 24" and it's hanging in the bathroom.
Here"s a close-up...I threw in a circle, a heart and a few triangles!
If you click on the pictures they will enlarge. I've been working on a couple of large projects (which is why I haven't posted in awhile!) so this was a fun alternative to your basic 1/4" seam sewing!
Hi everyone...My name is Lynne and I'm an avid quilter (sounds like a prelude to an AA meeting!). I love both hand quilting and machine, both applique and piecing. I hope to display some of my projects. I also love my cats who I will introduce to you also. My love of audio books is also a bit obsessive, too. I found quilting & housework go much better with a good novel.
