I finished this quilt earlier in the year but hadn't got around to posting it...


blogged

I inkjet printed the text for the "cards" on paper-backed fabric sheets from the craft shop. The hand-quilting was done freehandI might have chosen an easier way to do my first hand-quilting project, but I think it turned out quite nicely!

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Oh, that's so neat! I love it! Great job for hand-quilting. I love how the stitching sort of reminds me of woodgrain.
