After seeing this quilt technique in Sunday Morning Quilts and Amy Gibson’s blog I knew I had to make one.
The quilt measures 18”x 40”. Ticker tape fabrics are from Moda’s A Stitch in Color and Simple Marks Summer lines. Both are from the talented designer Malka Dubrowsky. The background fabric is Dictionary Pages from the Mama Said Sew line. I used cotton batting. I first tried using my walking foot, but changed to my free motion foot for better visibility and less turning. The pieces are small, and I can do better stitching, but this was really the look I was after. I also left the selvage edges on a few pieces. It is a thready quilt, it will fray even more, but it’s a wall hanging and won’t get the wear a lap quilt would.
My inspiration was a quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts and this quilt from Amy Gibson’s blog.
I had fun making this even if I did sew through my fingernail twice and experienced having the needle graze my finger another time. Living dangerously…
