PS quilt top

Strips sewn into sets cut into segments sewn into blocks sewn into rows sewn into a QUILT TOP!

I finished the Postage Stamp quilt top last night, just before bedtime. I needed a little sewing time after the frustrating afternoon I had yesterday trying to do work for school and losing it on the computer (how does that happen anyway?) then having to re-do it.

Sewing was therapy.


I waited until after work (a loooonnnggg day!) to take pictures, hoping I would get some nice sunlight but I got home too late and the sun had already said goodnight.


This is our current "spare room", recently vacated by the nephew who came for a month and stayed for four. It used to be the OnlyChild's room and she picked the wall colours - red and green. Red and green? She was in grade 7 at the time and (if I remember correctly) she had blue hair. A word of advice for you: Never let a pre-teen with blue hair decorate her own room.

I'm going to repaint it - maybe a nice, buttery yellow - then move my sewing room in here because it's bigger. The bed, dresser and wicker chair will cross the hallway to occupy my tiny sewing room.


So, now I have two Oh Cherry Oh quilts to finish - Postage Stamp and O'Cherries.

Don't let me start anything new until they're done, okay?

Oh they are both SO PRETTY!!!! I'm going to buckle down and get my PS top done. I worked on 4 more blocks yesterday. I have a total of 17 done. But today I need to work on a birthday gift so they will have to wait.

Hahaha -- like any of us are great examples of not starting new stuff when things need to be finished. They look fantastic -- both of them!!!
