tick(ering) along!

I finished two more ticker tape blocks today. This olive green one (love those little elves and mushrooms! I have some fat quarters of that fabric I need to dig into!)
 And a teal blue.
 So, 22 blocks done! Two more next month but I am thinking of doing a 25th block in hot pink. Then I can put them together in a 5x5 grid for a nice sized square throw quilt. Yes, I do think that is what I'll do!
I'm so proud of myself for keeping up with this one! A whole year of ticker tape blocks and I am still enjoying the process. That's what it's all about, right? Enjoying the process? It is for me! My very favorite part of the process is hand sewing down the binding at the very end. What about you?

They are going to be so pretty together in a lap quilt. I love that mushroom fabric with the little girl, so sweet

Your "Ticker Tape" blocks look fabulous all lined up together. Yes it is really great you are still enjoying making your blocks.Looking forward to seeing them made in to a quilt.
No I don't hand stitch binding. I machine sew them. Much quicker.

These are going to make a fabulous quilt. I really like the bright teal blue square! And, yes, it is all about having fun when we're working on our crafty hobbies!

I love these blocks! Do you have a tutorial for them? They'd be great for using up scraps!
