Postage Stamp Quilt: top is almost done!
I put this on flickr last night so some of you have already seen this, but for those of you who haven't, here is my postage stamp quilt! Each of the colored squares has 100 1.5 inch little squares of fabric for a grand total of 3,000 squares. I am going to add a 12" border all the way around to make it approximately 80x90". I still have squares left over-little ones and about 5 assembled 10x10 grids for the back.
I am just happy to have this quilt at this stage. It will next enter the queue for quilting and hopefully will be done before summer. This quilt is really heavy; It has to be all those seams because it really feels like two quilt tops or a finished quilt when you pick it up.
Hope you are all having a happy Monday!
