Ticker Tape Quilt


I needed another project like a hole in the head (especially since the Christmas season is just about upon us!) but I couldn't resist this Ticker Tape Quilt by AmandaJean. I've been wanting to do a mini quilt project and this was perfect. Something about the random squares and not having to applique really appealed to me! The edges of each square are left to fray which I wonder about but so far it is extremely cute. I keep threatening (myself) to use up all my scraps before buying any new fabric but I haven't been very good at sticking to this plan. This project won't get through my scraps very quickly either but it sure was fun to play with. Mr. Fox seems to approve too. October was Scrap Buster month at one of my favourite blogs and shops Sew Mama Sew where they listed 5 or more project ideas a day to use up your scraps. The Ticker Tape Quilt was my favourite.

It's a cute one... AJ's quilt washed up nicely. As all quilts do it will get scrunchie but soft & nice.

This is just amazing. I can't bring myself to quilt but if I were going to, I'd probably tackle this one. So stinkin' cute!
