Wait a minute Mr Postman...

Last fall I received the LLBean Home catalog and instantly fell in love with this quilt!

I have found a great way to make the postage stamp quilt using scraps WITHOUT sewing each little tiny square - I'm getting ready to start it sometime towards the end of February.

BUT - I thought I would check with all of you first and see if anyone is interested in a Postage Stamp Quilt Along? I would be posting the first one in late February.

This really wouldn't be as hard as it might look. I will include details to let you know exactly what you will need for whatever size you want to make. I will be making a KING size.. I know.. that's big!

If you are interested - leave a comment and let me know and I will be sure to get it rolling. This will be a great way to use up those scraps! Pin It

I have wanted to make a postage stamp quilt for years. Count me in!

Valerie said...

Oh yes, I need a king size quilt! I am just a beginner - do you think I can? Just what I need, a quilt along to look forward to. Yes. Please.

MandMStudio said...

Love that quilt:) I'm in.

Carol said...

I'm interested. I love the postage stamp quilt and would love to have an easier way to make it and use up some of my fabric as well.

kwiltmakr said...

Yeah I would like to as well, have been thinking about it lately and that one looks fairly easy. Good way to use up some stash.

Maria said...

Sue said...

I started a few years ago making a one inch 5 x 5 from the scraps of each & every quilt I made. The idea was to have a quilt that was a record of my all quilts!
Shame I didn't keep it up but a have about 10 little 5" blocks already

Paula said...

Not that I should start another quilt, but I'm definitely interested!!!!

Cindy said...

I'm interested as long as it's easy and I only need a full size

Mikol said...

Always up to making something new. Let's do it. :)

kheli said...

Sign me up, especially for a King size! I saw an antique Postage Stamp quilt at the Mint Museum in Charlotte last summer, it was amazing and I love the look!

ritad said...

I'd like to give it a try. I certainly have loads of fabric that I would like to find a nice home for. Of course I really need to start another quilt too!!

Meagan said...

Totally down. I started one earlier with some scraps but a more disciplined approach would be good. And end of February will mean all of my bee-commitments will be finished and I'll be free to finally make something for me. (I've never kept anything I've made!)

Crystal Hendrix said...

Well I love the Friday Night Sew in, and I think that is a very pretty quilt, I am in too. I will even make a King size too! ALTHOUGH I have already been saving 2" blocks to make a quilt kinda like this, but it seems like I won't need them.

Jessica said...

What a beautiful quilt and great way to use scraps!

Liz B. said...

I'm interested in quilting along; my 2010 goals are to use scraps to make ten quilts to donate to Project Linus. I have five tops done, and lots of scraps to go! This would be a great project. I haven't signed up for the Friday Night Sew-In because my schedule is different every week and I am never sure if I can commit. But if I am free, I'll be sewing!

Alice Grace said...

I,too, am an amatuer, but I am up for the challenge! Bring it on!

SheilaC said...

yes, yes, yes!! I need to bust some stash! :)

I love the look of this quilt. Please count me in and I LOVE to use scraps and have always wanted to try one of these quilts.

Simply_Suzy said...

What a neat quilt. I too would like to make a postage stamp quilt. Count me in as I can't wait to use up some of my scraps.

Madelyn said...

How cool is that quilt. I'm interesed, have loads of scrap material.

Wonky Girl said...

Yup, I will sew along with you'all. Mentioned it on a quilting forum and several others said they may join up too.

Donna @ Mudpies and Memories said...

I'd love to join in too! Our new king sized bed needs a quilt desperately and I have plenty of scraps to use up.

Oh, and I found your blog via a picture of baby shoes you made on flickr. :) I just love cloth baby shoes!

Deb said...

Just found out about this when I saw the button on the sidebar of another new blog I read. This sounds fun...even though I have four other quilt-alongs going. I'd love to give it a try...just because using up scraps is such a good thing, right? :)

Kathie said...

I have been making a postage stamp quilt now for the past year
I cut and save the squares and make blocks every few weeks, before I know it in another year probably I will have a queen size postage stamp quilt
I make it 10" square block
100 squares! much easier to break it down to blocks
I actually just made one into a little quilt last month.
I posted about it too

Oh my! Just found out about this and I'm soooo in! Have always wanted to make a postage stamp quilt but have been too intimidated. Wonderful way to use up my scraps too.

JustPat said...

I just found that catalog (again) and was thinking I could make it. I just put postage stamp quilt into Google and found you, oh my...can I be in too?

Jenni said...

Oh God, save me from myself! I'm interested even though I know I shouldn't be. Will I ever finish it???

Kerry said...

Hope I don't hate myself (LOL) but count me in too, please.

Lois said...

I'm curious about how this is put together. I love the quilt, have the scraps and might just take this on as a challenge. I'll keep watching for more info and will start digging out white and cream colored scraps.

Cathi said...

Just read about this on another blog...my stash is mostly scraps, can I join in this one?
