Joy and Dispair

Ignore all the thread ends that still need clipping. The Ticker Tape quilt is looking great!

Hopefully the process speeds up as I do more. When I stood up to admire the progress last night, I saw that I only finished about an eighth of the blocks. If you're looking for me, I'm under the ocean of unfinished quilting.

Gorgeous quilt and quilting, she sais in admiration!!

I still don’t have enough courage to tackle free motion machine quilting!

Oh my gosh, this is beautiful! I like how you added solid blocks between, first time I've seen that, great idea!

It is looking great. I would have such a hard time giving this one up. I do not care if it is for charity.

It's looking great! I like the contrast between the stippling and the outlining of each patch on the kids' blocks. And the solid blocks look great with the bright prints. It's going to be stunning when you're finished!

Such a simple concept is rendering an absolutely gorgeous piece of art! This project inspired me to do a similar project with my two young children (8 and 10 yrs). We all love the results. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

Wow, it looks great! Good luck finishing up the quilting.

Love that you are "stash-busting" this year. I've found some great project ideas and free patterns over at www.WeAllSew.com for using up some of my stashed fabric.
