Postage Stamp Border

Postage Stamp Quilt, Quilty 365 – The Final Frontier

Sunday was such a lazy day – it rained in the morning and I read my book and did little else!  Then in the afternoon as the weather cleared up but was too wet to work in the area we are working on we went grocery shopping came home and I read my book some more!  After supper we put a movie on and I got my Postage Stamp border out to work on and made good progress on the cluster of flowers I had been working on – I didn’t quite finish that cluster – one more flower to go and then on to the next area.    The burgundy flower is the last to do in this area and I was surprised but with all the twisting and turning of the fabric I caused the staple to come out so I have a pin stuck in it for now.  I am linking to MCM #39, Cooking Up Quilts – Beth mentioned my Postage Stamp border today – thanks Beth.  Also linking to Love, Laugh, Quilt: Monday Making , Patchwork Times, Design Wall Monday, and Em’s Scrapbag: Moving it Forward Monday.


Saturday nights work on The Final Frontier went well and I rolled the frame on down again and I am pretty sure I am now at the half way point.  I took Sunday night off of quilting for a change as we were watching a movie as I mentioned – should get back to it tonight.


Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Just not anything to chat about for change – unusual I know, maybe I will get more done today instead.

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

      something about rainy days makes me in a reading mood and I had a library book on my kindle that is due soon so better read it or will need to see if I can get it renewed – almost finished with it last night though so can finish in an hour or so today and move back to the witches bag

      No I am not entering the contest – I have found it to be more of a popularity contest then a contest on actual work – I don’t want to have to ask my blog readers to vote

    Your version of not getting much done and mine don’t see eye-to-eye LOL. You ALWAYS get something done — steady progress as you inch your way to the end — and it’s always such a great reminder of how things get done!

      thanks – it is extra work of course but a border will make the quilt fit the bed better instead of adding more postage stamp blocks!
