lisagillies said...

I'm working on lots right now, too much to stitch & not enough time to stitch it in!

Love the solids you've used in your postage stamp quilt, very nice.

Love it! It's on my bucket list to do one...someday (sigh). Currently I am working on a quilt of valor for my brother's upcoming Navy retirement gift. Also working on 2 other quilts that are needed for both sister-in-laws birthday gifts in May. One turning 50 the other 60. Whew! what a busy year already!!

I like that you have some solids intersperced with your prints.

This is one of my favorite postage stamp quilts... love the balance between the gray and charcoal solids and the lavendar and purple solids against the splashy oranges, fuschias, and teal printss. Good job!

Susan said...

Lotsa little squares :D

Maria said...

They look beautiful. Love the colours you've used. The pieces look tiny, what size is each one?

Your postage stamp quilt is awesome! Love all the lovely fabrics! I'm still working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden (by hand!) But it's coming along, and since I'm having to spend a lot of time with my foot up, what could be better? I've finished 5 rows (35 flowers) and I added 14 more flowers yesterday that need to be stitched and then fenced. Almost halfway!

Brenda said...

Those little squares look wonderful. I am working on way too many things. I do have 8 Granny square blocks ready to be sewn. But I had a couple of other projects laying on my cutting table I need to finish first.

Catherine said...

Working on the Glacier Star, and a few miscellaneous simple projects, for when I need to not have to concentrate!!!

Love your postage stamp!!! Super cute!

Tomorrow I want to start a new quilt Ginger Stalks, a pattern by Beyond the Reef. But I also want to get the backs for 3 quilts pieced, including for the Postage stamp I did in Central Park in your Quilt Along ( don't tell me how long ago...lol) I love postage stamps so much, want to do another too after checking out this version.

I love your postage stamp colours.
It will be one Gorgeous quilt.
Wondering if I can the patience to even make a mini sized one.
I have a quilted crown to make over the next couple of days.

Thimbleanna said...

Oh Wow Rachel! She's looking gorgeous -- can't wait to see!

Sandra said...

oh my goodness, that is gorgeous. SO makes me want to do one. (so do not having the patience for that though!!). Just finished a baby quilt, and a runner for valentines day. Got a sick child home from school for the last 2 days so that's slowing me down...:(

Cathy said...

I love your quilt. I am working on a couple of BOM's and finishing up some UFO's. Hugs

Barbara McD said...

I'm trying to finish a Civil War-inspired quilt top and finish quilting a top for a customer. Decisions, decisions . . . .

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

I'm working on a wall hanging called Remember Annabelle ORRR at least I should be....grin. I'm so easilty distracted.

Can't wait to see the blocks together.

I'm in the middle of sewing hexagons for a bed quilt. Your quilt project reminds me of the blocks I made for a bed quilt for myself years ago. I sewed the blocks in rows and it's still not finished because I decided to change the orientation of the blocks to diagonal. It's now one of my UFO's. i have to pull it out tomorrow and finish it.

Esther said...

I am working on a bed quilt for my brother... That actually needs finishing SOON. In between I am designing paper piecing stars!
