Hello!
I have never quilted anything before, but I have sewn quite a bit.  I have been wanting to use up my scraps by making a postage stamp quilt and I was wondering how hard they are to make?  I could use slightly bigger squares too, like 2" ones...

I think the difficulty depends on how good your sewing skills are.  A postage stamp quilt has smaller pieces so cutting accurately is important and sewing with a 1/4 inch seam consistently is key.  Since they are smaller pieces, any wobbles show up more.  I would also think ahead about the seams and press them so they lock- one side going up and one going down.  Maybe starting with something small and see how it goes  Smiley
So I guess not hard, just accurate would be my way of catagorizing.
