It was my sewing weekend with Country School Quilters this weekend and, of course, I worked on the postage stamp quilt. What I didn't expect was to actually get the top finished! I cannot believe that this behemoth is finally done....well, except for the quilting.
Here are the answers to some questions I expect to hear:
Yes, the postage stamps are 1" finished
There are approximately 3970 pieces (including the black pieces)
Once quilted it will probably be about 94" square
I stated it in 1998 right after we moved into this house
Quilting it will be a lot more fun than piecing it
I freaking LOVE this quilt.
You won't see it again until I start quilting it but hopefully it will not be too long now for that.
I always have a dedicated project for CSQ sewing days so when I came home I searched out the next one. I'm happy to report that my UFO shelves are getting a little thin! I did find a box with these crumb blocks. The are leftover from the Fractured Fragments quilt which is leftover from a king size Fractured quilt.
At least I'm consistent!
Anyway, I found a big piece of purple and a piece of yellow and found a wonky star pattern in a book. I put it into EQ and adjusted for the size I needed. I'm ready for the next CSQ sewing weekend (in September). This will probably be a donation quilt.
