Postage Stamp!

 
Now anyone that knows me, knows that I love me some
Scrappy Deliciousness!  I have made many postage stamp quilts, I
have sold the tops on ebay, gifted postage stamp quilts to friends and
charitys, I can just never get enough of these rainbow delights! I love
to just throw all those scraps together and make something bright and beautiful!
I'm never dissapointed wth the results!
 
 
This is my latest "almost" finish, I grabbed a gallon size ziploc bag
and stuffed it full with 2" squares from my ever overflowing bin and went off to
my housesitting gig for the weekend.  I sewed and sewed on my
Singer Featherweight "Trixie" until that bag of 2" squares was gone. This is
what I accomplished....twenty 64 patch squares of rainbow goodness!
So then I sashed them with 2 1/2" strips and squares. Its a real nice sized
quilt, but I still need to add borders with more of the blue, then it will
 be ready to get quilted and bound.
 
WHEW!!
 
So there, thats what you can make with a gallon Ziploc bag
stuffed full of 2" squares! 
 
 I still havent made a dent in that bin, what the heck?!!!

  6. Fun, fun scrappy quilt. I really like the addition of the blue sashing, it highlights the scraps, but gives a place to rest before the next set of patches. Beautifully done.
