Sew many pieces...


 Another block, another Block Swap Adventure Partner...
This one is for Cara in AK...
She asked for a postage stamp block in bright colors...


 A new venture for me...
This 12 1/2 in. postage stamp block has 144 squares in it.
The fabric is Moda's Flora charm pack.



This is the progress after 5 hours...


I know there is an easier way to make this block...
Well...I KNEW it after I was this far along... LOL!



Unbelievably, this block took three evenings to finish.
And I didn't mind a bit!
I wanted to send her a good block for her quilt...



Now...hindsight is always better, but if I get another request to make
another 1" postage stamp block square...
I will use less pieces and more smarts!

Strips baby! Strips!

LOL!

Cara, I hope you like and can use your new block! I can't wait to see 
your finished quilt!

  1. Wow...that's fast. I'm such a slow quilter. I've been putting rows together today and have only done 3...giggle.

    So glad you are feeling better. Go hug that Gbaby.
