Last weekend was sewing weekend with Country School Quilters and the project I'm working on there is the postage stamp quilt, my oldest UFO.
This is how one corner looked like last month. The chopped off black diamonds as the edge (per the pattern) annoyed me.
So I added a border of 9-patches. I got the 9-patches made in April and got the border sewn on this month.
Now my edges have complete "X" and diamond shapes and all's right in my symmetrical world.
Next up is a 2" black border, then a border of 2 rows of postage stamps and then a 4" black border. The last border is dependent on finding a black fabric that will match what I have close enough. I ordered 4 blacks from eQuilter yesterday to try to match up. Hopefully one of them will come close to this black fabric that I bought 19 years ago.
I'll be back to work on this one again in June.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
