Red Postage Stamp Pieces
Do you know Sandy at Gray Barn Designs? She blogs with her sister, Cindy, and I ‘met’ both of them back in the day of the New Quilt Blogger blog hop we all participated in. They are both really nice and often have some really cute, free patterns. Sandy recently started a new project using just 1.5″ postage-stamp-sized pieces of red fabrics. Not just any project but a QUEEN-size quilt project.
The Red Innocent Beginning
The whole project began innocently enough – Sandy had a bunch of 1.5″ pieces and thought she needed to make something with them. She went through her stash and cut up all the red fabrics into the appropriate size. She had enough for ONE row of the 19 rows she needs. Houston, we have a problem.
Sandy determined that she needs 3,540 stamp-sized pieces for this quilt; however, she only had 1,250 on hand.
Sister and Friends to the Aid
What’s a good sister to do? Start cutting and send a ziplock baggie filled with 1.5″ red squares. What else?! Of course, I raised my hand as well and so did Karla, and Wendy, and Chela . . . Isn’t that just SO cool??
Saturday afternoon I started cutting up some red teeny, tiny squares. I am now 100% that Sandy is nuts . . . but in a good, healthy quilty way that we all get ourselves into once and a while. A little
more less cutting ensued on Sunday (the littles came over!) and then all of the bitty bits are going in the mail on Monday. I cannot wait to see the red beauty in all its postage stamp glory when Sandy gets it complete.
