I made this little quilt over my morning coffee—only 3 hrs including hand stitching the binding. My scrap bin overfloweth…and I save some ridiculously small pieces. This was a “scrap purist” project, I didn’t trim a thing on the little triangles. Even the binding was leftover strips I trimmed from another quilt. I’ve wanted to make a “ticker tape” quilt for a while so I’m calling this “Ticker Triangled.” They’re simply raw edge appliqued to a white quilt sandwich (made from a $4 flat sheet from walmart, one of my favorite sources for cheap fabric, I don’t mind that they’re a poly/cotton blend).
I plan to hang it vertically on the outside of the bathroom door to brighten up the paneled hallway a bit. It measures 13x20.”
And I thought I’d share my little ‘found’ binding tools—these often come with clothing but this particular batch came with a pre-packaged quilt kit I bought last fall. Much more pleasant than constantly jabbing yourself with pins holding the binding in place while you stitch.
