Fashionably late, my Ticker Tape Twist is the quilt I've chosen for the Fall '10 Bloggers Quilt Festival.
Inspired by Amanda Jean's ticker tape, I changed it up a bit to make it my own. It's pieced out of 12 inch blocks that I raw edge appliqued the "tapes" to. The "tapes" were all scraps out of my scrap bin, which is my favorite way to quilt!
I love looking at this quilt, which reminds me of all the blog friends I've made since I started blogging. Each of us a beauty on our own, and very unique. And when we all draw together, we compliment each other so well.
For the construction, I used flannel for the batting so it can double as a lighter summer quilt and a table cover.
I hand quilted it with crochet cotton.
Here it is gracing my table
and I'm surprised I was able to get a photo without my cat on it. He never used to get on the table much, until I started putting quilts on it. Now he's constantly up there. Because, you know, all quilts were made for cats to lay on.
Make sure and check out all the amazing entrants to the festival:
