Ticker Tape Heart

I am excited to have a guest post today on Amy Smart's Diary of a Quilter blog. The Ticker Tape Heart block is a fun, scrappy block that's perfect for Valentine's Day.

If you don't decorate for Valentine's Day, it would also be a great Galentine's Day gift for your favourite girl friends. Or it would make a sweet a baby quilt or wedding gift. I also think it would be fun to make a whole rainbow quilt of Ticker Tape Heart blocks. I certainly have enough scraps for it!

I couldn't decide if I wanted to make a mini quilt or a table runner, so I made four blocks and made both. Like I said, there's no shortage of scraps around here. I quilted in the ditch around all four hearts and around all of the scrap pieces with Aurifil 2430 50 wt thread. Then, for the mini, I stitched a small loopy meander with white Aurifil. The loopy meander makes me think of eyelet fabric, for some reason.

For the table runner, I stitched a loopy heart meander at a slightly larger scale than I used for the mini quilt.

I love quilting this loopy heart meander! The texture from the loopy heart meander and from stitching around all of the scraps is so, so good.
