postage stamp quilt

YAY - my postage stamp quilt top is finished - I sewed the last few seams to join all the rows this morning.


Don't get me wrong, I've loved making it but it is the biggest quilt I've made so far and just a little time consuming with all those seams which is what happens with 1,800 2 inch squares :)


but I'm pretty happy with how its turned out and now just need to find some buttercup backing fabric and this one is definately going to be long arm quilted - it measures 80" x 90" (2 x 2.3 metres)

  1. I just love the Postage Stamp quilt, such a time honoured pattern overlooked. You did a super job and at that size, I would send it to the long armer too. Well done!

  3. Really nice job. I'm not sure I'd be up to dewing together that many pieces.
