Inspired by a blog post a while ago (wish I could remember where I saw it .... Sorry!!) I decided to make some quilts with my kids.
I pulled a whole load of scraps from the scrap box, ironed them on to some fuseable webbing and cut out lots of little shapes using my pinking shears.
Then I had the children select the patches they liked, peeled off the paper backing to turn the pieces into stickers and place them on a square of white cotton.
The only rule I gave them was that the pieces shouldn't be touching.
Then I followed Amanda Jean's procedure for her Ticker Tape Quilt and put on a binding.
PS Have you checked out the great deal from Mango Lime yet?
looks just like Angela's quilt at http://mythreesonsknit.blogspot.com/2010/02/ticker-tape-parade.html.
cute stuff. I LOVE that Darcey Collection binding print! must try this with my kids...cute!!
Your kids must be proud of these! I should get Ollie to make one too - he'd love it!
Very cute!, I was going to point you over to My Three sons too. I think this is something my girls would love to do, for that matter I would too!
What a great idea!
What a great idea Andi- and a good way to get the little ones involved.

What an awesome idea! Especially for the holidays! My girls and boy one would love to give this a go....ooooh you could even do it as a birthday party theme!! Little girls would love to make there own quilt to take home!! Minus the binding of course. Yes I love it, I'm inspired!! xox

That is such a cool idea (adding it to the loooong list)!

what a great way to quilt with kids! I've been trying to figure out a project that I could do with a 4 year old. She loves stickers! This is just the project! Thank you SO much!!!
What a great idea - and what fun quilts!
I love that there was only one rule!
ooh, I love it! I might even let her pick the fabrics, then i'll fuse, then she arranges- for the new bedroom, of course! Not sure if I emailed back, got the house, move in 3 weeks- ARGHHHH!
Awesome idea! They look fabulous!
What a great idea! And they turned out great, too.
Andi I have GOT to try this with my kids...great idea!
This is where I first saw this type of quilt:
I love the idea of giving your kids fabric stickers! That is totally awesome.
Oh..that is good...really good!! Brilliant work!
That is an awesome idea, I must remember that for the next school holidays.
Simple and nice...the patches not touching each other create an effect in itself.Lovely sharing here.

I think I too am gonna need to make one. Perfect use for those odd size scraps.
