I've been cutting more squares for my Postage Stamp quilt!

 Have you seen the book: 4" x 5" Quilt Block Anthology? Well, Judie Rothermel has a new line coming out soon that she designed for a quilt made with blocks from this book, and I just got the shop kit!  The fabrics are awesome, can't wait to receive them! You can call us a reserve a Fat Quarter bundle!
And we will be making this quilt together!
We had our Timeworn Treasures meeting which was about triangles and I showed this antique quilt and look: Antique fabric next to new one, isn't that cool??? I love that!

Have a great day!

Here is one of the new samples we took to the show:


I wanted to put some of my crosses into a quilt. I decided to applique them which is a little faster than English Paper Piecing the whole thing... But I wanted to have that same effect as in the original with the little squares. So I made a modified Irish chain and appliqued my crosses, what do you think??
I love it!! The pattern is available on the website of course! And we made a finishing kit if you are interested, call the store: 630/480-3000
