Have you ever had a quilt that you always wanted to make? One that just keeps rumbling around in your head? For years I have wanted to make a Postage Stamp quilt. The first glimmer of inspiration came from this book -
I bought this book new back in 1983, when my sweet mother in love showed me how to make yo-yo's. But the quilt that really caught my eye was this one -
I was always fascinated with this Postage Stamp Quilt. It measures 83 1/2" square, using all kinds of 1 1/2" squares. I was hesitant to make a quilt using 3216 squares! And that was just the scrappy fabrics, not including the accent colors.
So when Heidi from Handmade by Heidi suggested having a Postage Stamp quilt along, I thought here is my chance. I am so looking forward to using up a lot of my scrap pieces that I have collected over the years.
This should be fun! Come along and see what's happening as we start cutting 1 1/2" strips. I hope it will be faster then the Pony Express :-)
