Ticker Tape Quilt

It's a celebration!

The ticker tape quilt is 30" X 21" and goes on my wall
to remind me to be happy and celebrate life!
***
Here is how it started...
I had the ivory strips left over
from the pink coin quilt,
and the bright color scraps
left over from the ditty bags...
Used some heat fuse to adhere the little rectangles to the strips,
then sewed 9 strips together for the quilt top.

Added a cotton batting for the middle,

and a bright fabric for the back.
Next I stitched around each square... twice.

Then the fun stipple quilting down the rows.
My goal was to have the appearance of the confetti falling.


Are we happy?

oh my goodness, you are making me want to make a quilt so bad!!! hehe. don't be suprised if i don't try this SOON. this one seems doable for me, but do i need a quilting machine for the stippling or just a sewing machine? as you know i'm new to this. :P
