Postage Stamps

I found this little Sunbonnet Sue block made of postage stamp sized squares (1.5 inches)  at the Q is for Quilter blog so thought I would try it with some of my brown scraps I still had sitting out from November's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I think I will make a girl from scraps of every color as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014.  I am rolling over a lot of projects to next year that  I started this year with RSC 2013.  Early in the year I used a lot of crumbs each month that turned into some cute donation quilts.

I finished a few more 49 patch postage stamp blocks to add to my collection.    I only have one low volume patch and I was thinking a bunch of those blocks with some lacy old doilies and such appliqued on top would be pretty so I may try that next.

These postage stamp blocks are really nice. I have been making these blocks as my "leader, ender" pieces. They just seem to multiply!

The SBS is darling. I'm finishing up a king-sized postage stamp quilt. Can't wait to cross this one off my bucket list.

That's a good idea for next year's rainbow scrap challenge. Next year I'm going to make more blocks to add to the blocks I made this year.

It's so fun to see another quilter make one of the vintage patterns I've posted. Your Sunbonnet block is so cute, and I can't wait to see her made in your other scraps.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my SBS post -- now I'll be able to keep up with your quilting adventures.
