Well a Swap and Birthday swap surprise for Jen in PA...
This is the 'Postage Stamp Block' that I made for her!
Lets say it's a long story Jen & I mis-communicated on a size
of the squares for her postage stamps....so I had made one that was 2" squares! Argh!
Then after looking at the blog where Sue B had made her one I see it's the 1- 1/2" squares.
So, I e-mailed Jen, she was so kind, oh I could as a second choice send her a log-cabin.
....................after thinking about this overnight, I asked myself is that okay? No!
I know that I enjoy getting the blocks I pick so.....
My sister's favorite squares are the postage stamp
and I am trying to get my hand at doing
these a lil-quicker so I grabbed my bin of fabrics that I am collecting in her colors and
Jen the postage stamp in a mix of these as scrap colors!
I learned a few big lessons this month.....
#1 Don't sew your block until you hear back and confirm whatever questions you may have. Smile
#2 I will never make a 1- 1/2" postage stamp block..."Quickly"! (ahem) Ha!
#3 I sure do agree with this is a absolute wonderful block from the days of older quilts!
I see why many love this look.
I so hope that she will like it and it will fit in with her "stamp" collection!
Happy April Swapping Birthday Jen...
