I hope I have this in the right category!

 My fiancé and I bought our first house recently, and I've been having a great time trying to make it really feel like home. There's not much art stuff on the wall apart from some boring flower art, which neither of us liked very much. So I took the frame and made a mini ticker tape quilt (complete with batting) using scraps from recent projects. Now it's something I actually want to look at Cheesy



 I will definitely be making more of these, it was extremely enjoyable Smiley
Sorry about the quality of the photo, it's super dark today!

Beautiful quilt.
I like how the black background lets the colorful fabrics on top shine.
