Are You In the Postage Stamp Quilt Along?

Are you in the Postage Stamp Quilt Along that Rachel is having? When i first saw it i thought it was adorable then thought do I really want to do a postage stamps?!? They are so small ... ugh ... then i decided i have a jelly roll to use up and this is the perfect way! So, yes, I'm in!

I'm doing mine in Nature's Notebook ... blues and yellows ... i just ordered cream fabric from this line from the Fabric Shack and will cut my 2 1/2" strips rather than order a jelly roll. I wanted to make sure the cream fabric matched perfectly! Now i just need to "grab" her button. I tried several different ways but it hasn't seemed to work:O)

Hope you are having a great week!!!

I'm doing the quilt along as well. Yes, I thought at first did I really want to make one, but since it would be a new pattern to me I thought why not. Plus, I have some jelly rolls to use up too!

I'm in too! I will be using a Sent With Love jelly roll that I have on hand and some yardage of white fabric to go along with it. I'll have to order backing and binding though if my local quilt shop doesn't have any in stock.

This should be fun!
