This coming Sunday marks the new season for the Muscat Quilt Guild! We are to make a new name tag no larger than 4x6". I thought this would be the perfect time to try out one of those techniques on my long list. It frees me up from dreaming of making a larger quilt!
So, I love it when it goes from here:
I wanted to use my coveted last printing of Flea Market Fancy. I wanted to use the entire line. So I DID! I started with a sketch.
Then cut into these beauties. I positioned them where I wanted and tried not to cut too much more off.
Then I freehand quilted my name and the year. I had white thread in the bobbin and black on top. It came out mixed, which I like the look.
I used the rest of the line on the back. I also used a stiffener as that is what I wanted.
All the glorious threads!!
All quilted and cleaned up!!
I did not want to cut further into any of the fabrics so I used a scrap piece for the binding in my scrap box. I liked the yellow and as the white background has polka dots; I chose this one for the same reason and it matched!
I tried to sew the finished seam on the bias. It was really, really hard. I persevered and did it! Perfection!!!
I am sewing on the binding.
Proper little Ticker Tape quilt! Thank you Amanda Jean for the inspiration!
This is the backing. I can't wait to show the ladies and see what they made!!
Thanks for stopping by.
