This week I started my very first postage stamp quilt, which I plan to make lap size (another first) for movie watching, book reading, and general couch snuggling. Many thanks to the super sweet Jolene at Blue Elephant Stitches for sending me a ginormous mailer full of beautiful scraps.
This is probably going to sound incredibly geeky, but I swear to you I felt as though I had won the lottery when I poured them all out onto my couch!
After I got over my initial excitement, I spent a little time organizing them loosely by color, then bagged them up and threw in a few of my own scraps. Last night I couldn't resist cutting into some of the green scraps, which is why you don't see those bags (yes, there are two more!) here.
My plan is to cut the scraps to 1.5" squares and then sew them up into 4" x 4" monochromatic blocks similar to some inspiring blocks I pinned recently.
This should be fun, but I certainly don't expect to finish it any time soon!
