When it looks like this outside, there’s no excuse for not getting some sewing done! I’ve been chain piecing for hours and days working on my Postage Stamp Quilt.
I’m not done piecing all those strips together yet, but I’ve already got enough squares to fill up my design wall. When I slapped up the first 3 or 4 squares, I have to admit I was thinking “Eyesore!” but now that more of the squares are on the wall, it’s really grown on me. Scrap quilts are greater than the sum of their parts. I like all that color, but I think in future I’d also like to try a scrap quilt with a more limited color palette, too. The only rule I had when cutting for this one was no black, brown, or gray (though there are little bits of it in some of the prints).
Still haven’t figured out how big I want this one to be. I’ll have to see how many squares I end up with when all the piecing is finished. I have lots of ideas for any orphan blocks. Table runners? Accent strips on bags? The possibilities are many!
