The first ‘charm squares’ aka ‘treasures’ arrived in the post yesterday…
Although I’d signed up for newbie gifts in the Postage Stamp Quilt Swap on The Curious Quilter last month, this package came from Marsha of Streaming Thoughts as a special prize for being observant. 🙂
Charm squares #1
Thanks heaps Marsha! There was a lovely combination of colours and patterns in this package. 🙂
Now it’s a case of waiting patiently for the others to arrive. I was surprised to receive emails from not one, but three other quilters who will be sending me 2 1/2″ squares of fabric. One is from the USA, one from Sweden and the third from Mauritius. I’ve been warned that one at least could take a few weeks to get here.
For those who, like me, had never heard of Postage Stamp Quilts before, an internet search will show up plenty of links.
I’m not sure yet what I will make (although am leaning towards a larger quilt). When I have completed my Made with Love quilt I’ll cut up some squares from the leftovers to add to the collection. I’m hoping to have enough of a ‘stash’ to be promoted from ‘newbie’ to ‘swapper’ next year.
