You know the say 'out of sight out of mind'?! I totally forgot about sharing this quilt during my Postage Stamp obsession. I made two other quilts: Postage~Over Due!! and Perfectly Imperfect with the hundreds of 2" squares that were tucked neatly in the closet. Because I was on a roll (and frankly, just wanted the madness to end), I made a third and final quilt with the left over left overs!
|33" x 50"|
I tried to make three completely different quilts, and I believe I did just that. This one may be my favorite!
Once I finished making seven different colors of blocks, I added a white border around each block. It just wasn't 'doing it' for me.
A little too boring for me. I needed an idea...some 'umph' was screaming loud and clear to me.
Which led me to adding yet another border using a solid to match and compliment each block. Oh yeah, and why not add corner squares in white?!
Adding the additional color was a little tricky for me. I had to think about diagonally piecing the blocks. Since I wasn't adding the colored borders around all sides of each block, I had to quickly figure it out! I admit that I messed it up a couple times until it finally made sense.
No more boring!
I was anxious to do a little quilting on it! Okay, a lot of quilting on it!
