I always like to surf the net and see
other blogs and learn from what they post.
I found this one this morning about making
this particular quilt. I now have been
inspired to do a quilt just like this one.
If you are inspired like I was, then go for it.
Postage Stamp Quilt Tutorial
My scrappy postage stamp quilt begins with a variety of 2 1/2" squares of fabric.
I picked up this box of pre-cut fabric and miscellaneous blocks at an auction for $3.00.
- Sew squares using 1/4" seam allowance alternating one white fabric with one scrappy fabric.
- Attach outer border (A) by sewing a strip of the 3 1/2" x 37 1/2" to the top and bottom.
- Attach outer border (B) by sewing a strip of the 3 1/2" x 51 1/2" to the sides.
- Press seams.
- Finished quilt top should measure approximately 42 1/2" x 50 1/2"
