First Class, Air Mail or Priority Mail Postage Stamps

None of the above ... thank you! 
:-)
 
The only postage stamps I need are all in my
finished
postage stamp quilt. 
Can I get a
WooHoo????



I started this quilt with a certain size in mind. 
After I laid it on our bed I decided it had to be bigger.


I managed to put a huge dent in the container filled with 2" print squares. 
I used all of the 2" white squares, as well. 

Every line of fabric Bonnie & Camille have designed for Moda is represented in this quilt:
Cotton Blossoms, Simple Abundance, Bliss, Ruby, Vintage Modern, Marmalade, Happy Go Lucky and Scrumptious.
  
Here it is in all it's glory; big enough for our king size bed. 
 :-)

The stats in case you want to make one, too. 

84" x 90" finished
1680 - 2" print squares
1680 - 2" white squares
Total - 3360 - 2" squares

When I decided in May that I wanted to make this quilt I was chatting with
 Carol (Brown Quilts 4 Me).
We decided it would be more efficient for me to make 16 patches. 
It was much easier to keep my 2" squares straight (we feared individual rows might bow)

14 - 16 patches per row
15 rows

This quilt was so much fun to make.
I hope you'll make one, too.
Start cutting your 2" squares. 
:-)

 Thank you for stopping by to visit with me. 
I've had a couple of very pieceful days - I hope you have, as well.

In Friendship!

~woohoo to you!

I was thinking that sounds fun till I got down to see just how many squares were in there! Argh! But a sixteen patch I could cope with - one at a time!

Joanna said...

That's beautiful. The numbers make me pause but the results make me want to make one.

Debby said...

She is a purdy thing for sure!!!! Congrats on a grest big finish.

Carol said...

Your quilt is stunning! Well done!

Vicky said...

Totally awesome! That is the prettiest stamp quilt I've ever seen! What a way to showcase the fabric! WooHoo!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheryl said...

Oh, Darlene, it is fabulous! Hooray for finishing it!

Yvette said...

Now that is awesome!

Sandy Rowe said...

Hip Hip Hooray! Very nicely done!

carol fun said...

Oh I love this quilt! What a great way to show off all the different fabrics...and I have several of these collections in my stash. Thanks for the inspiration...now to find time to sew.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Love that postage stamp quilt! It's on my list ... and what a wonderful idea to put it together as 16 patches! I wonder, too, if it might not seem so overwhelming when you break it down into 16 patches.

sunny said...

Oh my gosh - you were just talking and planning in MAY?!? of this year? Holy cow. It is awesome. I would actually like to make one someday. Thanks for the tip on the 16 patches!

Carrie said...

It's awesome!

"Certain size in mind"? Whose mind? The one you lost? What amazes - and impresses - me most is that you actually cut all those 2" x 2" squares. Did you count them all while you were cutting? Or did you just cut bunches and bunches and hope you had enough? :)

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow your quilt looks awesome!! I've always wanted to make a postage stamp quilt. I recently got a GO! Baby, so I may start cutting up those scraps :-)

Terry said...

It's beautiful! Congratulations on getting it finished! :0)

Linda said...

Amazing!!!! Absolutely amazing Darlene!!

Robin said...

Wonderful!!! It is so crisp and clean looking. I love that you were able to fit in all the lines. AND, what a great dent in the ole scrap basket. You must feel great. You deserve it--

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

Gorgeous! I am in awe of you going that big with those little squares... I just love those fabric lines too.

Wendy said...

This quilt takes my breath away. How exciting to have all those lines of Bonnie's fabrics in one quilt. Well Done!

Allie said...

Wow Darlene it's just gorgeous - making the 16-patches is a great idea, I'll keep that in mind if I ever make one!!!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

whoohoo! Way to sew!! It looks marvelous! :-)

Kindred Quilts said...

I look at your postage stamp quilt and I immediately hear the Beatles singing, "wait a minute, wait a minute, Mr. Postman..." WAIT A MINUTE INDEED! This quilt is spectacular! How clever to use the many fabrics of the same designers, and sewing together 16 patches makes more sense than sewing rows. It definitely is first class, Darlene!!!

KatieQ said...

The quilt is amazing. I love the way it looks on your bed. I've been working through my 2.5 inch squares. It is a bit addictive.

Lynn said...

Gorgeous!!! And VERY labor intensive. You did a great job!

Michele said...

WooHoo! Beautiful :-) I love that you have all their fabric lines in this! How fun :-) and congrats on finish something you've been working on for awhile!

Camille said...

WOW this is amazing!! AMAZING. Now I want to make one!

Mary Truax said...

Love the quilt, Darlene. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!

Jeanna said...

Amazing quilt Darlene! You and Carol ARE the MOST smartest!

Mary Kunna said...

That is beautimous!! I love it.
Thunderous applause!!!!!!!

Jackie at Adirondack Urban said...

Ooh I love it! I've got a little collection of 2" squares I'm saving for my own postage stamp quilt. As of today, there's only enough for a doll quilt :-) maybe someday I'll have enough for a bed sized quilt!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I'd like to give you a double Whoo Hoo Whoo Hoo!! I absolutely love it Darlene. What a beauty!

Christine S said...

Awesome!

Sherri said...

What a gorgeous quilt Darlene!

ruthsplace said...

It looks fabulous. Very inspirational!

I'm saving 2 inch squares at the moment, but have a while to go before I get to the required number.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

I commented over the weekend and looks like it didn't stick. I LOVE this Darlene! It is gorgeous!!! I like the idea of the 16 patch. I'm thinking I will start a scrappy quilt with my 2.5" squares as a leader/ender type of project. No rush. Just get the scraps down. I'm using them in a Granny Square quilt too. I need to pull that project out again.

Karin said...

I just love postage stamp quilts! And you picked my favorite designers! Now, maybe you have to wait for the backing until you can get yardage of their new line ''April Showers'' they announced today :)

Nancy said...

WOW. That is just beautiful!! Congrats:)

Abby said...

AMAZING! and BIG! So glad you finished this one up - I have slowly started sewing together my squares to whites in hopes to get to this someday - ok maybe not this as in KING - but a finished quilt. Thanks for the inspiration!

Carol said...

It's wonderful. I can't wait to start one - just what I need - another project!

Carol said...

It's wonderful. I can't wait to start one - just what I need - another project!

Lori said...

Wow! King size itty bitty pieces!! Woo-Hoo! It is gorgeous!!

Deanna said...

That is a great quilt!

Lorraine said...

Wow! Fantastic Darlene!!!

Thelma said...

I've been by several times to drool over your quilt, I love it. I think I'll just have to copy your pattern and fabric, but there is no way mine will be kingsize. Great job !

Ranch Wife said...

Wowza, Girl! THAT is one awesome postage stamp quilt! I know I'm late to the party, but I'm whooping it up in your honor now! This is on my list, but I can't seem to find any sewing time lately. 16-patches sounds very do-able. How did you quilt it?

Carole said...

Oh,..... so sweet! What a lovely quilt! While I'm at it, congratulations Grandma! Enjoy! Cheers!
