I am so excited to finally be sharing with you my Postage Stamp Quilt!
I started it over a year ago in a quilt along, but as usual, lagged behind. I proudly share with you my finished product. I'm really excited, as it's only my second finished quilt of this size.
Here is the top that seemed like it would be so easy, but went on for seemingly endless seams. I took my time pairing up all the strips into individual blocks, making sure each print was equally represented throughout. I'm really picky that way. It's part of my charm, really.
I'm really excited that I not only decided to go with solids on this one, but that I ventured out of my comfort zone and pieced my backing. The solids took a lot of thinking, but I finally decided to pull out some predominant colors from the top and came up with these. So bright, sweet, and lovely, they really make me smile. I also had some leftover strips from the front, so I decided to break up the back and showcase them here. I have several more extra, and will eventually make a matching throw pillow.
I spoiled myself and sent it out to be quilted. Chris, from the Cotton Pig, did an all over "wandering pipe" pattern that really echoes the layout of the stamps.
