Once upon a time I didn't quilt and I loved looking at antique quilts on ebay. I would find lots of quilts I liked and only a few I could afford. Postage stamp quilts always caught my eye. I loved the confetti of colors and the orderly squares. I actually had a saved search that informed me of all new listings for "antique postage stamp quilt". I never bought one but I always wished I had one. Now thanks to Rachel's quilt along... I do. Well almost...
This quilt top is well on its way to becoming a full fledged postage stamp quilt. We used two jelly rolls and that was it. Pretty straight forward but lots of seams and pressing. A LOT of bobbin thread. If I were to do this pattern again, I would use 6 squares to a block instead of five. That way there would be one block (instead of an Block A and a Block B) and it would naturally alternate.
I didn't realize until I put it on the bed for pictures how satisfying this project was. I am *almost* the proud owner of a postage stamp quilt. Eeee! The best part is, I made it. Am I crazy to think this would be perfect hand tied?!?
Notice all the pins? Pins are your friend for this quilt.
Pressing seams to the side helps line up all those tiny squares.
PS, I Love it! : )
