Tickle Tape: The Audition Process

I'm currently working on a doll quilt for the cradle between my girls' beds.  Okay, it's also to enter the modern mini quilt contest, but still...  My oldest daughter's been after me to make a ticker tape quilt ever since I showed one to her one day; she just loves them!  The other day, though, she slipped and called it a tickle tape quilt, and so that is definitely the name of this little version!!

I've got the ticker tape pieces laid out in the "audition" process....   does your eye see any that need adjusting?  I still haven't decided what to do with the heart in the center.  My original intent had been a medium pink, but it's just not right.  I need to play around with that some more.

  1. Laurel, how is this going? Have you chosen a color for the heart? I think a bright blue would be good. Something bold and contrasting with the pastels. Just my 2cents. Did you "applique" your circles on? Are you going to do anything else with them or just quilt over the top of them? I am currently working on some placemats. These will help me practice my "ebb & flow" quilting technique. I will post them on our msg board when I am done. Again, I am so excited to see what you decide to do with this babydoll quilt. Thinking of you, sister!
