Ticker Tape Mini

I made a Ticker Tape mini quilt! and I love it! and I want to make a hundred more!

Making this quilt was seriously fun because I got to use some small scraps that I just can't part with. Not as small as a scrap I shared on IG but fairly small. I have a lot of them, too, so I probably could make a hundred more.
I added a cross-stitch strawberry square I had tossed in the scrap basket. It turned out to be my favorite part.

This quilt totally validates my crazy tiny scrap saving. The thinnest piece is less than 1/2". It's the red/pink DS barbells up there in the left hand corner. I mean, how could you throw that away?

I'm linking up today with Crazy Mom Quilts (who thought up this super fun quilt) for Finish It Up Friday.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Sewing!

This is a super cute little quilt - I totally want to make one. But I'm always puzzled by such little mini-quilts, what do you do with them?

Susie said...

This is fabulous! My kind of quilt. I keep every scrap also.

So pretty!!

It's been a long, long time since I have made one. The one I made was a doll blankie for my granddaughter. They totally validate all the precious little scraps that just can't be tossed, don't they?

Kate said...

Such a great idea and looks terrific!

Kathy said...

So adorable! Love the little stitched strawberry too. Question: Does one fuse these tiny pieces first or not? They are all so straight and perfect!

This is adorable Erin! I'm going to start saving my tiny scraps to do this. So fun!

Erin @ Why Not Sew? Quilts said...

Thank you all!

Denise Marie, I use them for my quilt wall as a hanging or as a doll quilt for my children. This one in particular is a wall quilt now.

Kathy, I didn't fuse them. You could. I just sew as I go. A dab of glue could hold them into place first also.

I love this! It drew me right in from my Bloglovin feed. The little cross stitched strawberry is perfect on here.

This came out adorably. I hope you make lots more of these. They would be super fun to use as place mats for a party.
