Had an itch to make another ticker tape quilt... this time around on a much smaller scale. And I must say it was much easier to maneuver on my machine and table. A bright mix of fun scraps...turned into a dollie size quilt: finished measurement approx. 21"x24" front side a quilters 100% cotton- a white on white scroll mini print backside a pale yellow quilters flannel, cream thread top and bobbin I've got another one in the making using a different color combo. These are a fun way to utilize scrap fabrics. I'm off to bed earlier than usual tonight......
