postage stamp--top completed

Pieces cut 1 1/2 inch squares, made into 64 patch blocks, with 32 each solids and scraps.
I didn't do any strip piecing for this--all scraps from my shoebox of 1 1/2 inch squares and solids from my stash--most solids were Kona.
It used a lot of thread!

This is a great quilt top, I can imagine the number of hours you have spent playing to complete it... Thanks for the inspiring blog!

Great top! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the quilting. I have one red block done and half a purple. It's going to be an enjoyable long term project.

What a glorious quilt! I just love it. Did you have any plan when you combined the solids with the scraps or did you just grab from the bin? What are the dimensions and how many months/years in the making?

I love this! My dh is retiring from the postal service in a little over two years. I should make this. I love your version. (I also have the pattern/mag for the crosses which I hope to make.) Glad I found you again :)
