Time for a quilt show!

When I finished this quilt...
I did a happy dance!!
A VERY LOUD....
A VERY BIG....
happy DANCE!!!!
 
All those little 2" squares were
FINALLY a QUILT!!!!

I'm sharing this one for
 
It proves that LOTS and LOTS of little tiny pieces of fabric
will EVENTUALLY become something....


That can be USED!!!
 
Dimensions: 86"x86"
Includes a MILLION 2" squares
(some were sent to me by blogland friends!)
Hey!
I even quilted it myself!
 
 
I call it my postage stamp quilt.
;)
 
Enjoy the quilt show!

  22. Wahoo, it's wonderful Beth. Did you just use your regular little ol sewing machine? Not a mid or long arm?

    ReplyDelete

  37. I love your Postage Stamp Quilt!!! It looks great on your bed. I've just started one myself, although I'm working with 2 1/2 inch squares :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yay!! What a fabulous quilt!! It's so colourful and fun and you'll different fabrics every time you look at it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's fantastic! I love the colourful scene and the simple pattern which is not at all simple when the squares are so small! I have made a wall quilt with 49 2"x2" squares so can have a small idea about your work ... or perhaps not ... one million?! It's so beautiful! x Teje

  40. Oh. My! I'm in awe of your patience! Love the discreet pattern the white squares make. :-)

  42. Wow! Wow! Wow! It's just beautiful.

  43. This is really pretty - I love the white in it. Usually they end up being made with darker colours but this is a lovely change. I'm working on one too (have been for a few years now - by hand) so I can totally understand where the happy dance came from!

    What I really want to say is "Wow"! This is amazing, I love it! The only way I can imagine doing this is as a leaders & enders project over a few years.
