Ticker Tape Quilts

I just learned about ticker tape quilts yesterday (Flickr Group) and now I want to make one! Wants wants wants!

I still haven't figured out what to do for a gift for my cousin and her baby (they have everything money could possibly buy and I don't have much quilting time b/c of my own baby and bad back). Now I'm thinking a super simple split rail toddler quilt (baby is more of a toddler b/c she is adopted), a baby doll and a baby doll ticker tape quilt with lots of scraps from the bigger quilt, plus a bunch more. I just hope that would be special enough. I guess that's where I'm hung up. I want it to be special, but I don't know how to make something special enough with my limited time/bad back. I guess I have a pinched nerve or something. I've sought treatment, but nothing seems to help other than not sitting in a hard chair and not packing around a 25 pound baby all day.

I'm very excited about this idea! Now to find some perfect fabrics. . . yummmy fabrics. . . shopping. . . oh yes. . . excited.

Have you made a ticker tape quilt? I'd love to see pics/hear advice.
