TICKER TAPE FUN

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!

I have never seen one of these before. It looks like a good idea to get rid of some scraps. I will have to look at some more samples of this - I may try one! Thanks for showing it.

It turned out great and the few odd shapes keep it interesting. Makes me want to try one, thanks for sharing.

I like your idea of throwing in the odd shapes other than rectangles. Well done!
