Postage Stamp Border

Postage Stamp Quilt

About the only think I worked on Monday was the Postage Stamp quilt.  Seeing as I had it out from the previous day I thought I better get started on it.  I cut out one cluster of flowers and leafs and pinned in place (I hate fusing) and got to work.  I have the red flower left to do, then on to cutting more flowers for the next one – maybe if I try to work on it every day this month I will be done with it by the end of the month!!  it’s a thought anyway!  Linking to Esther’s blog today


I think the next Retro Air Ship Propeller block will be made with fabric from this box – some pretty browns and gold in there.  Some of the boxes are starting to bow in the middle from having more fabric stacked on top of the boxes.


I have a lot more of these boxes on the shelves and that is where this quilt will be made from – some are fat quarters some are less – there will be enough for sure – 9 boxes this size, mostly divided by color but as I ran out of room I started to stuff anything in them!





Yes I do believe I can make the Retro Air Ship Propeller out of all this fabric and maybe 4 or 5 more quilts as well (or more)

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Ah the wool flowers look pretty. A glance at your fabric and the greens jump out at me… I think “leaves! ” / getting more greens for applique is on the bucket list here ha ha.

    You’ve made pretty progress on your Postage Stamp quilt!
    Such fun to see how you organize your fabrics – they look beautiful stacked in your boxes and bins.

    The postage stamp quilt is an interesting combo of shapes… large area of squares… but so small that they do not dominate… contrasting with the round and larger shapes of the border. Using the clam shells with the flowers is pretty cool.

    Such gorgeous boxes of fabric. I love to see pictures of what other people have in their stash, but you post made me smile. I too start off with good intentions of keeping my fabric nice and orderly and then I get far too excited about a project and the system gets messed up!

    Hi Karen, your stash is much more contained and available than mine LOL Mine is in boxes in different parts of the house many in the attic to keep dry through the wet season. On the 4th Sept Karen you showed a photo of your postage stamp quilt with the two borders on either side it looks stunning how lovely this quilt is going to be. your little wool flowers look so happy and full of joy. Hugs Glenda
