I’m going to go out on a limb and say I’m (almost) FINISHED making these adorable little blocks. I brought all the ones I have that haven’t been sewn into quilts already with me to the beach and today I finished sewing all the ones I’ve cut in the last couple of weeks. The blocks are finished and counted. You won’t believe this. I have 999 1/2 blocks sitting here. I think that’s a sign that I’m almost finished. Half a block more will make it an even 1000. That’s enough for 12.5 more quilts. I think I’ve got 7 at home, 4 completed, 3 tops assembled. That means if I happen to falter and make just a few more blocks (40), I will have TWENTY of these Postage Stamp Quilts to put away for grandkids some day. That’s only 7 or so kiddies from each of my 3 children! Yay!
Now I can finish assembling all the tops. I have promised myself I’d stop, but you know how I am about even numbers. I’ll probably eventually get to 20 even and call it done.
Here is a free tutorial showing how to make this quilt: http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2012/04/postage-stamp-quilt-tutorial.html
Here’s where I am when I’m not sewing:
