Also, the bring 'n brag girls at The Quilt Asylum are doing a ticker tape quilt along. Every month we get scraps in two more colors. In a year, we will have 24 blocks done for a quilt! The blocks due in September are red and yellow...
I decided to make my ticker tape blocks 10 inches square with 2 inch borders, so they end up being a 14 inch block. This will make a good sized quilt when it's done!
I used some of the scraps they gave us and some of my own (especially since this month was my two favorite colors! I had lots of scraps to add)
Have you done ticker tape before? The fun part is making the scraps fit, kind of like a jigsaw puzzle. Then you just stick them down with a glue stick to hold them in place and zip around them with a straight stitch, raw edges and all. I had so much fun doing these 2 blocks and can't wait to do the next 2.
Lots more projects to show you soon!
