Ticker Tape is a style of quilt-making that uses small scraps. Where patchwork involves sewing precisely cut fabrics together (right sides together) to make a larger fabric, ticker-tape involves sewing scraps down on top of a background fabric.  With ticker tape, scraps are usually placed like a puzzle.  This puzzle is not usually planned in advance, but rather evolves as you cut and attach scraps.  You can see lots of examples of diverse ticker tape quilts here.

She really did quilt them by machine, but she did all the horizontal lines and then went back and did all the vertical lines. So, that would be a lot of starting and stopping, but it's a very clever idea!
