This was the first time I've participated in a quilt-a-long, especially one online. I have been a follower and admirer of Rachel's work for about a year now. You can check her out at PS I Quilt. In January Rachel had her 2nd quiltalong, this time a postage stamp quilt. Seeing as I'd had the desire to make one but just didn't get around to it (like so many other things) I decided to jump in and make a little something just for the heck of it. Here is my progress, start to finish (the top anyway):
My initial Strip Sets (I used 2 jelly rolls, Fresh Flowers by Deb Strain for MODA, and MODA Bella Solids Snow)
My strip sets after sewing them together:
Planning the layout of my blocks:
My completed quilt top:
I have a few strips left over, which will go on the back and into a matching pillow for this. Isn't it just perfect for these drab, cold winter days?
