omg this thing was a beast! i've never quilted anything before and when i saw someone post a ticker tape quilt, i thought, bada-bing, easy quilting! no piecing! HA! no piecing, just beastly turning-of-giant-fabric-sammie on my small machine. around four sizes of one meeeellion ticker tape pieces.

anyway, i finally finished it after 9 months of stitching here and there, and i have to say, i do love it! it's in my 4 year old's newly redone room Smiley

a ticker tape quilt and bunting, how much happier can a room get?







thanks for looking! Smiley

I've never seen one of these before but I really like it. I'd like to try one but I'll try it with my machine quilter and frame.

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

thanks y'all! i do love how it turned out, but i will likely never make one again, unless it's a small doll-sized one or something Wink i added some bunting with the same fabrics as a little swag on her curtain too, which just makes me happy, lol!
