Postage stamp quilt along Part 1.

Kona Snow and Keiki Tweet Tweet
Well it seemed too good an opportunity not to do the Postage Stamp Quilt-Along since a bunch of jelly rolls have just arrived in my mailbox from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I have chosen Keiki Tweet Tweet by Moda as I like the colours in this range and I think they contrast well with the Snow. So the last couple of days have been spent sorting and sewing into strip sets.  My eldest daughter did come into the room while I was sewing and comment that I seemed to be taking over the house with fabric and my sewing! Sound familiar, anyone??

I have 2 days left of my 3 weeks holiday and am not sure how on earth I will be able to get up for work at 5.45am on Monday. I haven't been waking up until 9.30 - 10ish every day!  Anyway, the thought of work is all very depressing, so I am planning our next holiday already!! Tony and I are off to Vietnam in April for 3 weeks. Neither of us have ever been there, so we are looking forward to exploring a part of Asia that we have both read so much about. He loves war and history books so is very excited that he gets to drag me around all the war memorabilia and museums. Yawn! I am more interested in the beaches and food!


Was sorting through the paperwork in the office a couple of days ago and Dinah, the cat, came and plonked herself down beside me (as they do) right in the middle of all the paper. There's no show without Punch, so Max the dog came and made himself comfortable on the cat!

And lastly, my thoughts and prayers go out to our neighbours across in Queensland with their terrible floods. We watched the news tonight and the devastation is incredible. Thankfully, my friends over there are all safe, but I know many families are grieving for loved ones. A terrible tragedy.

Postage stamp quilt along.

Rachel from P.S. I Quilt is having a postage stamp quilt-along that I have decided to do.  All you need are 2 jelly rolls, one plain and one whatever, and some fabric for the backing and binding.  I love the look of postage stamp quilts and quilt alongs are always fun. I love seeing what other people come up with.  I love Rachel's blog too. She is another quilter and blogger with lots of great tutorials on her blog.


I took advantage of the Fat Quarter Shop's  sales before Christmas and picked up a heap of jelly rolls, so this will be perfect for them. However, I really wouldn't mind Central Park or Sunkissed in a postage stamp quilt, and of course I didn't buy them at the time! 


Perhaps I could do the Blogger's Block-a-Palooza  as well as this looks like it is going to be fun as well, and I could use either of these 2 ranges in this.   Oh, decisions, decisions...
