In my efforts to procrastinate on the things I should be doing, I’ve gotten carried away with working on my newest undertaking, a Postage Stamp quilt.
Because I need another UFO . . . don’t we all?
I had all these squares cut for another purpose, but decided to make that other quilt in different colors, and not needing two of the same project, I cabbaged onto these squares for my Postage Stamp Quilt.
Instead of just sewing all the print squares together, I’ve decided to do mine in a checkerboard fashion, setting them together with white squares.
My squares are cut 1 1/2″, to finish at 1″.
I’m setting them together into 8″ blocks. Each block, therefore, has 64 squares, half of them print, and half of them white. I still haven’t decided exactly how big I’ll make it, but it’ll be somewhere in the vicinity of queen-sized.
This keeps it in manageable, easy-to-work-with chunks, and I just keep the basket sitting next to my sewing machine, and use them as leader/ender patches. I should have it done in no time, right?
You should make one, too. You know you wanna . . .
