It's been a while since I've gone head first into my scrap bin, however the scrap bin continues to overflow and could no longer be ignored. The overflow was messy business.
My fabric scraps are many but they all vary in shape and size. The only reasonable conclusion to draw from this mess was to make a Postage Stamp Quilt. Postage Stamp quilts can by any pattern - not necessarily a light/dark fabric layout - and the name refers to the rather small scale of piecing.
I am making a Postage Stamp Quilt with 16-patch blocks and I am strip piecing the blocks (cutting strips measuring 2 inches x 7 inches) just to speed things up a little thereby ensuring that I don't lose interest and end up with a doll quilt; the intention here after all is to use up those scraps (mind you, I do love doll quilts!).
Each finished patch of fabric is 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches.
I think you'll recognize many of the fabrics used!
Thank you for stopping by!
