I worked on sewing up my postage stamps today. I had 3 pencil boxes, a gallon baggie and a box of them already cut.
This is one of my new postage stamp projects. Imagine these on point, though.
I saw a postage stamp quilt in this book I loved. You can see part of it on the cover. The book just arrived on Wednesday and I actually purchased it because I have been looking for an old pattern I call Russian Sunflower and this book has it although I think it is just called Sunflower in the book. Haven't started the Sunflower yet because I was distracted by the postage stamp quilt. I even had enough of the double pink fabric in my stash for the alternate blocks. Serendipity!
I am now buried in rows of 6 postage stamps. No strip sets here!
I just sewed like the wind to empty pencil cases, bags and boxes.
I also made 3 more blocks for my other postage stamp quilt modeled after a vintage one with sashings. According to my notes I need 7 more of these 10 inch blocks and I can start assembling my quilt. I used the postage stamps I had sorted by color since that's the way I've been making these.
I also sewed up some of the neutrals/low volume blocks to add to my collection. I'm hoping to add some lace pieces and crochet motifs (like butterflies and pansies) and embroidery (like bullion roses) to this one someday.
I have the rows sewn together for more brown blocks to go into my plain brown wrapper quilt as well as some black/white/gray rows of postage stamps for a black/white/gray postage stamp quilt.
And now I'm pretty much out of postage stamps!
Can you tell I like quilts with itty bitty pieces?
