No quilt is easy, but a postage stamp quilt is my go to when I want to just create. While digging through some old wips (works in progress) I found some leftover blocks from this baby quilt. There wasn’t enough to make another quilt. I grabbed the seam ripper and started just taking them apart. Time for a fresh start with these fabrics.
P and I were messing around in the sewing room on Sunday morning and we started going through my scrap bins. He loves to pull out colors and mess around with them. Why not make a scrappy boy’s postage stamp quilt with what I already had as a starting point? We dug around in my scrap tubs for green, blue, aqua, white, cream, brown, yellow and orange. I quickly pressed the scraps to make cutting them easier.
During a family viewing of Ghostbusters for the 10th time, I cut the scraps into 2.5″ squares. Rob taught Porter to say, “Back off man, I’m a scientist!” He went around the rest of the day screaming that phrase.
I hope to get these squares laid out into a quilt this week. Would you have any interest in a video on how I chain piece a postage stamp quilt? I’ve been throwing the idea around and this may be the project to make it happen.
