Postage Stamp Quilt Again

 I am done piecing all the Postage Stamp blocks together, but I think the quilt needs a border or two. Maybe it should have a thin, white border and this blue and teal fabric I found for an outer border.
 I have something new in my quilting room. 
 It was supposed to be a jewelry holder, but I think it is perfect for my scissors and rotary cutter.
 It is on the wall above my sewing and cutting table. 
It looks like the whole country is having record cold temperatures.  Even in Texas it is so cold that the kids have a day off tomorrow. I  sure do enjoy having my fireplace on for a few days during the year. 
I am almost done with the binding on the Square in a Square quilt. I enjoy hand sewing my binding in front of our fireplace.  
 Happy Quilting until next time,

I love your scissor holder! I have about 10 pair of scissors and I am always hunting for them! What a good idea!!

Brooke said...

I bought all the fabric for the postage stamp quilt along. Wasn't that ambitious?

Seeing your quilt makes me wish I would have actually done something crazy like cut into mine. And actually sewed a few postage stamp blocks, maybe.

Yours is wonderful, and I can't wait to see what you do with the borders!

What a fun post. I think you need to become a photographer for new quilt books. You certainly have an eye for great staging, as well as making beautiful quilts.

Love your postage stamp quilt!
