Here is my ticker tape quilt in progress. I used some french blue cotton for the background and went through my scrap bag looking for scraps in shades of blue and red. I arranged them to please me and then pinned them in place.
I am using the directions from Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts for this quilt, although I am only doing a block at a time in the "quilt as you go" fashion. That way I can make the finished quilt as big as I want without having to drag a large amount of fabric under the sewing machine at one time.
