I finished...

my top for the Postage Stamp quilt-along hosted by Rachel at!
I ironed the last seam at 11:36 p.m. and my husband was in bed sleeping so I couldn't put it on my bed for pics, which was my original plan.  And then today I was going to take some pics outside with it laying on top of a (clean) snowbank, but it was too wet out today, so forget that.  And here's a closeup:

At least the top is finished, but I want to make it larger, a queen-size, so I have some more work to do.  Any suggestions for borders, solid or prints?  Although maybe Rachel is going to address that when we get to the completion part.  I guess I'll find out.  The fabric I used is Sugar Pop by Liz Scott, just as a reminder if anyone is interested.  That's all for now, folks!  XO


  1. It looks wonderful!! I know what you mean about taking the picture where you planned. Sometimes my pictures just can't happen how or when I'd like them to :) the Postage Stamp Quilt Along looks like it was so much fun...I wanted to join in but there was just not enough time. So many fun little time :)

  2. Oh, LOOK at it, Jodi! It is so cool! Did you make your deadline? You know, you make me want to do one of these, I've always loved checkerboard/postage stamp quilts. You've chosen a pretty line for this, too. Good job, well done!

  3. Looks fabulous! I love bed sized quilts.

  4. This looks so good Jodi! Your seams look like they all match perfectly - I am hoping that the quilting will disguise mine. ;-)


I love to hear from you!
