42-Cents Forever Stamp
74 x 92.5
It's a top!
Instructions for the quilt top can be found in the book Treasury of Quilts by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle. I usually don't use the same colors as any quilts I make from books but I think it was the double pink background in the photo in the book and on the book cover that attracted me to begin with so stayed with the same color scheme. The postage stamp pieces also caught my eye. The instructions in the book have you make strip sets but I sewed together each of these little 1.5 pieces individually. Strip sets aren't usually my style and aren't conducive to using my smallest of small scraps.
I've had a herniated disk, sciatica, dizziness and nausea (and extreme pain) for the last week and I feel best when standing so have had little time for sewing. When I did sit down to sew for a few minutes here and there I needed something mindless and easy to work on and this was it (along with several hand projects). Otherwise I've been walking, trimming scrub trees invading the property and working (standing) in the kitchen to process the garden bounty.
