Girly I-Spy Ticker Tape -- FINISHED!

It's done!



After a loooong break from working on this quilt (other obsessions crept in!), I finally revisited it and finished it night before last. Yesterday I sent it through the wash a couple times, trimmed off the extra hairy threads, and resewed the edges of a couple squares that frayed beyond the stitching.


I love the fun, girly backing and bright binding.


And THIS, my friends, is the pile of threads that came out of the wash! Amazing!

I love it!!! I was just telling someone this morning that I think I'm going to this sort of quilt with my I-spy squares & had the hardest time finding your first post about it.

I LOVE this, Care! I am definitely going to make one someday! Love how the quilt crinkled up. Great job!

What a fun quilt!! I'm sure that there are a few birds who would love that string ball to make themselves a nice bird mansion! LOL!

Hi Kimberlee,

I linked to my first post about it, which linked to the original source -- but my links are hard to see!

Here is my first post about this quilt: http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.com/2011/03/i.html

And the inspiration: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2009/09/ticker-tape.html
