Postage Stamp Quilt progress
I'm back with an update on my oldest UFO. I'm working on this project once a month when I have sew-in days with Country School Quilters. Here's where I left off last month. You can see that all I completed was the black border. That may not seem like much but I had to put the first 2 on twice.
I'm finishing this quilt on a different machine from where I started and the 1/4" is different on each machine. The last row of 9-patch postage stamps is a little bigger than the rest of the quilt. I can deal with that in the quilting but I needed this border to be right to contain it all. I knew that going in and thought I had measured correctly but after I sewed on the first 2 borders they were too wavy so I remeasured and un-sewed and re-sewed and now I'm happy.
The next border is 2 rows of postage stamps. I got one done this weekend and half of another. Maybe I can complete these next month. I'd love to get the last solid border on too but I think it will take 2 months. Regardless, it's one step closer to done!

This is a very cool quilt. It's going to be fabulous when it is complete. 2 months will give you time to enjoy the process a little longer.
