|Postage Stamp Quilt :: 54 inches x 54 inches|
Please be warned that what follows here is a picture post of the quilt: the colors, the fabrics, the binding, etc. Yawn ... I hope not to bore you with too much detail.
|My thoughts when I started quilting this quilt? :: What have I started? I must be insane!|
This quilt is a catalog of the fabrics that I have used in my quilts in the last three years - over 1200 squares of fabric and an estimate of 300+ different quilting cottons including the odd vintage scrap.
It is an "I Spy" of quilting fabrics and also of running puppy dogs (Sherbet Pips) by Aneela Hoey (Hi Aneela!), Matryoska Dolls and text prints in a range of colors.
For the back of the quilt I have used a print that I have been
hoarding saving as backing fabric for just the right quilt. This fabric is from the Del Hi collection by Valori Wells - Paisley in Scarlet.
For binding fabric I have used Running Stitches in Turquoise (from the Lush fabric collection) by Patty Young, which is a nice change from my standard black/white binding fabric. I do like to mix it up a little.
This quilt was listed in my Etsy Store, but it was SOLD before I finished writing this post. I know it is going to a wonderful home where it will be used often and much loved.
