Finish It Up Friday ~ Postage Stamp

I love this fun quilt! I really wish I had cut two sets of the solid squares, because I already want to make another!

All fabric came from the stash, which meant piecing a backing.

The extra navy binding I made a while back was perfect for this.

It is so bright!

I love all the crazy, random fabrics.

I kinda wish I could keep it, but it will be a wedding gift for my nephew and his new wife.

The pantograph is Malachite from Urban Elementz.

Have a wonderful day!

    Is your postage stamp 1 1/2″ when you cut it. Then 1″ done when put into the quilt. It is a wonerful quilt.

    Oops, not scary…I meant scrappy tone of all my quilts.!

    This appeals to me in everyday! I love checkerboards and while I am not usually a fan of wide borders, but it is perfect frame here. This is a timeless wedding gift! On another track, your mention of Roberta Horton had me pull my stash of her books. I hadn’t viewed them in a long time and now I have more quilts on the to do list. I even found notes from a class I took with her in early 80s about colo/fabric choices. thinking about it made me realize this set the scary tone that is found in all my quilts both then and now. thanks for the reminder!!

  5. YAY! I don’t normally care for wide borders, but it feels just right for this quilt.
