Postage Stamps: A Finish

My first finish of 2013! Collective hurrah! Here it is: Postage Stamps

I am thrilled with this quilt. It is one of those "I have been holding on to these scraps forever because I love them and now I finally did something with them" quilts. I know you have those too.I have blogged about the creation of this quilt here, here  and here

I was a little nervous of the sashing color I chose, but ultimately the neutral background makes those stamps pop!

My irrational fear of free motion quilting continues on, but I wanted to finish this off with something opposite to the straight lines of the stamp blocks, so I chose a scalloped stitch on my machine. The quilting looks lovely and after the wash there is a nice soft crinkle.

During this project I found the "Wonder clip". Where have you been all my life? I love these things. An excellent investment. I bought mine here at Bloomerie

Orange with white Polk a dots finish this quilt nicely and the backing magically worked with all of the colors on the top.

I am in love with this finish. After washing it got deliciously soft which I think will be wonderful for a night on the couch with a movie.

  1. Wow-ee!!! What a stunner! Your backing fabric is absolutely perfect. And the Wonder Clips -- we love those for binding, too!

  2. Thank you Jess! Who would have thought that Dr. Suess fabric would work for the backing of this quilt :)

  3. I love, love, love this quilt! It's stunning!

  4. Thank you! I am quite smitten with it myself :)

  5. I got out the tape measure and it just won't do for my double bed, otherwise i would jump at the chance to buy this quilt. I love it. I have more throws around than I can use already so it has to be bed size to attach me:-)

    1. Thanks Melanie, that you got out the tape measure makes me super happy! Perhaps a bed size one down the road will attract you:)

    2. After seeing this quilt again on FB, I've changed my mind. I want to buy it regardless of the size. Just love the colours and the design. Hope it's not gone already.
      I left my phone numbers on the FB message.
