When I finished this quilt...
I did a happy dance!!
A VERY LOUD....
A VERY BIG....
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!!!
Includes a MILLION 2" squares
(some were sent to me by blogland friends!)
I even quilted it myself!
I call it my postage stamp quilt.
Enjoy the quilt show!
It is a hard work not only the sewing, but the cutting!ReplyDelete
I love it! I think I'm going to start one for me!ReplyDelete
This quilt is awesome. I like how the white squares make a pattern. How long have your worked on this quilt?ReplyDelete
Amazing! So much patience and it looks so great on your bed.ReplyDelete
As someone who saves the tiniest scraps, I am thrilled, encouraged, and impressed. Absolutely marvellous!ReplyDelete
Just gorgeous!! Congratulations on the finish.ReplyDelete
I love it!!!!! It was worth all the trouble as it looks spectacular.ReplyDelete
Wow!!! two million squares!! That is a fantastic quilt!ReplyDelete
I am impressed! I have saved scraps for years and would love to complete a quilt like that. It is beautiful. I am not so sure about the quilting it myself part, I am not sure I am ready for that but you have inspired me.ReplyDelete
Love it! Great scrappy quilt.ReplyDelete
Leeanne. The term million was a slight exaggeration...:/ReplyDelete
Amazing!! Great quilt--congrats on a beautiful finish!ReplyDelete
Oh YES!!! Finally a full grown quilt! You must be sooo proud!! I'm jealous ya know!! I love those tiny pieces and LOVE working with tiny pieces myself!! I think you just have to persevere when working with smaller pieces and keep your 'eye on the prize'!!!ReplyDelete
You have a great prize indeed!!
Having just finished my own quilt with a million 2" squares, I can understand your elation at being finished. It looks marvelous!!ReplyDelete
I love scrappy quilts, and this one is really scrappy! It's beautiful. Congratulations!ReplyDelete
its beautiful...makes me want to work on one for me.ReplyDelete
You do amazing work!
Nothing says love and comfort like a good scrappy quilt and this one takes the cake - love it!ReplyDelete
That's amazing! I love how you used the lines of white to help lead the eye through the quiltReplyDelete
I'm making one of these so I know how much cutting and sewing is involved. Love yours!ReplyDelete
It is so beautiful, Beth!! I know you're glad to have it finished - a true labor of love!! Whoop whoop!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on finishing your quilt! I sent a few squares and I was wondering how you were doing on this one! It looks fabulous on your bed! A lot of work, but worth it!ReplyDelete
Wahoo, it's wonderful Beth. Did you just use your regular little ol sewing machine? Not a mid or long arm?ReplyDelete
that is a stunning quilt, beth! renews my faith that maybe i'll manage to finish mine someday (as i sit back and start stitching those little squares together by hand once again....someday it will grow up to be a real quilt like beth's!)ReplyDelete
great quilt , so pretty.ReplyDelete
I love postage stamp quilts I am working on one too but I chose 1" finished squares, what the heck was I thinking????
I love it! I think I may have sent you some. It is fun to see. Currently, I too am working on one that finishes to 1 inch.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! I love postage stamp quilts.ReplyDelete
are yo sure its not a billion?ReplyDelete
great quilt Beth!! What an accomplishment
There is nothing more stunning than a scrap quilt. Don't you just love the way you put all those fabrics together and ended up with a work of art!ReplyDelete
What an accomplishment! So many little pieces!ReplyDelete
We must be all crazy to like quilting....come on! one million???ReplyDelete
I really don't know any other hobby that is so painful and in the same time so amazing! Your quilt is fantastic! #76
A wonderful display of fabrics. Great finish!!ReplyDelete
Lovely.......congratulations on your perseverance!ReplyDelete
amazing quilt. I love PSQ's. did you participate in the charm swaps hosted by The Curious Quilter? I did and it was fun getting fabrics from all over the world.ReplyDelete
ti fa dire oooooohhhhh!!!!!!
Congratulations on finishing the quilt, it turned out beautifully, Beth!ReplyDelete
Wow! It looks great on your bed. Good work.ReplyDelete
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
Yay!! What a fabulous quilt!! It's so colourful and fun and you'll different fabrics every time you look at it.ReplyDelete
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 TejeReplyDelete
Oh. My! I'm in awe of your patience! Love the discreet pattern the white squares make. :-)ReplyDelete
Wow! I'd be doing a happy dance too! Congrats on your beautiful quilt.:)ReplyDelete
Wow! Wow! Wow! It's just beautiful.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Sorry - I had this page open and my daughter got to it! ;pReplyDelete
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.
Wow! Did you go cross-eyed making this? It looks fantastic, but that's A LOT of little squares. :)ReplyDelete
It's nice to see this quilt again Beth!!! Love it.ReplyDelete
I like the way you put the light ones on the diagonal! Looks like a labour of love. Well done. Good luck in the finals!ReplyDelete
Wow, that is a lot of piecing. Great job. And congrats on the finish and the happy dance.ReplyDelete
