April Meeting- Ticker Tape Quilts With Angela!

Our meeting this past Sunday featured Angela, who blogs over at My Three Sons. She came in to show us her hints and tips for Crazy Mom Quilt's ticker tape technique!

We all brought scraps of fabric to share, so there was an amazing variety to choose from. Here we all are, picking through the pile and choosing our treasures :)

After that, it was time to play! We each brought in a piece of background fabric and a glue stick to make our own ticker tape mini quilts.
