How about Domino?
That’s what this little doll quilt reminds me of. Little dominoes. I know, I know. Yes, I am totally in love with polka dots. If I could, I would add them to everything I make.
This is another Ticker Tape quilt. Like the yellow and orange one I made from the tutorial over at Crazy Mom Quilts’ blog.
Mainly, I like that I can use fabric from my scrap bin. Lining up the squares is fast and easy. Just mix up the colors. Perfect for those odd pieces that don’t go with anything. Place some vertical and some horizontal. Fill in all the spaces. That part is super easy. The sewing part does produce a few sighs. About half way, I think, am I done yet??!! But they are so cute, I keep going.
I really like making them and have been thinking of ways to create the same look without the raw edges raveling. I bought some Steam-A-Seam2 fusible web for appliqueing.
Maybe I can use it for these ticker tape pieces. I am thinking the edges would be more stable and fray less.
Have you ever used Steam-A-Seam or any other type of fusible web? How did you like it?
