Ticker Tape

Another finish & tutorial I never wrote up.

Rainbow Ticker Tape

Pictures are dated July 2012 
This is made from rainbow charms from a 2012 swap.
 Cut charms in half
 Then random thirds

 Layout placement of colors, I used 1 yard of black as the background
 I left a space for a label
 Used the letter feature on my machine along with some stabilizer
 After I finished I realized I messed up a tad, I didnt stitch my pieces down through the layers of top/batting/backing
I suggest this to be done if you give it a try.

again I made a mistake,
here you see my finish as a turn and top stitch.
I used velour as the backing

 Time to trim those strings

 All those strings actually look kinda pretty to me

 Coordinating Rabbit

 Rolled all pretty
 A card to go with :)


  1. That is really colorful and awesome! I don't know if I could ever make one of these kinds of quilts.

  2. Your ticker tape quilt looks really cool! :)
