Postage Stamp Quilt top all done

I have been enjoying the Postage Stamp Quilt Along that Rachel has been hosting from P. S. I Quilt.  I used Keiki Tweet Tweet and Kona Snow. It didn't take too long to sew all the blocks together and I love how this has turned out. Now I just have to decide how to quilt it. I have several blocks left over that I will use for a pieced back.

It was a great ad filler-in!! I was watching a movie on TV and was pinning and matching my squares while the movie was on. As soon as the ads came on, I would hurtle out to the sewing machine in the next room and there was just enough ad time to sew a block together! It was one of those quilts that I  had to do "just one more block", so I ended up going to bed about midnight last night!! There is a lot of crap on TV after 11pm if you don't have Sky TV, I have realised. Was a little hard to get up at 5.45 am this morning, I must admit.

  2. Oh, this came out beautiful! Great job - yes they are 'gotta get it done' type quilts. The true postage stamp quilt has no borders - just a binding. I like the idea of adding some of the blocks to the backing. Super, super quilt.

  3. Wow, I didn't think it would go together so quickly, and you got a work out too with all your running during ad breaks LOL. Now that's balanced sewing.

  5. It's beautiful, Deb! I know you are going to just love this one! How about just straight line quilting on the diagonal?
