Postage Stamp Quilt again

 My Postage Quilt is squared up and the binding is on. I am busy hand sewing the binding down.
I love sitting next to the window with a cup of  tea or coffee and working on bindings.
 I got this pretty tea cozy from Madame Samm. It is so beautiful and keeps my tea or coffee warm for a couple of hours. Thanks MS.
I quilted this Postage Stamp Quilt for Cathy. She made the top a few years ago and used her scraps. Isn't it a lovely scrappy quilt?

 Last week I had the opportunity to quilt this old top pieced in the 1930's. This quilt has the real 1930's fabrics and  the fabrics are in such a good condition.  Even the bubble gum pink fabric is so bright and did not fade over all these years.
 All the fabrics in this beauty is old, except for the new muslin backing and batting.
 Happy Quilting until next time,

You can post your postage stamp as many times as possible, Millie. I simply love it...everything about it.

I do believe I HAVE to make one - as soon as my other couple BIG commitments are done - I HAVE to make one.

You are so imspirational.

Good Morning Millie...ok this postage quilt I love it ...it is soft and delicate and the colors quite soothing. Your clients quilts are very nice, the pink bubble gum oh yes ...ohhh and I see your cuppa cozie...it blends nicely. Certainly a perfect spot for you as you sew on your binding...Love the whole effect.

Sheila said...

Beautiful Postage Stamp Quilts! What a great way to use up scraps. I want to make one for me!

JoAnne said...

Millie, your quilts are lovely and your quilting is beautiful. I've finished a large quilt and want to quilt it myself. Since it is made of blocks that are all squares, I wanted to do an all over something. Someone told me that the first thing I should do is stitch in the ditch around each block. Do you do that? I think I'll be stitching forever if I do that.

If you get a chance to answer, thank you so much. My DH wonders if I will ever finish this quilt!

Hi Millie, I don't know how I missed this post, but I did. :( You postage stamp quilt is so pretty, and I like the one you quilted, too. And that 1930's one - oh, my! My mother has an old quilt with that exact shade of pink. It really stands the test of time. Hers has been laundered many times and it is still so pretty.

Ariane said...

I love your postage stamp quilt. It looks wonderful. I love the fabric you chose. The quilting you did on the other two quilts is wonderful. I love that old 1930's quilt. It's a beauty. Hugs Ariane
