Postage Stamp Quilt ~ Finished!

This postage stamp quilt was fun from beginning to end! Rachel over at p.s. i quilt hosted a quilt-along at the beginning of this year and I jumped at the chance to break open my very first jelly roll and use up some white yardage that was taking up space. I never imagined that it would turn out so well! I had the chance to long arm it just last week, and just yesterday finished binding it. I'm nuts about this quilt! What do you think of it?

Postage Stamp Quilt ~ Finished!I had enough postage stamp squares left to piece a strip for the back, and threw in some of the binding fabric too.

Postage Stamp Quilt ~ Finished!How do you like those quilted swirlies? It's a new thing I tried on the long arm which I love love love and I'll share the secret next time. For now, I'll let you think I'm just an awesome long arm quilter! Tee hee :)

So that's my latest finish. A big thank you to Rachel for taking the time to share her excellent tutorials for this quilt-along!

Seems I've been finishing lots of projects these days, which is such a good feeling. With school ending soon for my little ones and our summer plans already filling up the calendar pages, I am not sure just how many projects I'll get done in the next few months, but I've already started some summer crocheting (small cotton things for my Etsy shop) and I have a few things I want to accomplish down in my sewing room where it is cool and usually dry during the hot summer months.

I hope you have a wonderful summer, or winter depending on where you are, filled with gorgeous fabrics and yarns and lots of great ideas!

Happy Stitching!
