Playing with Postage Stamps

 While making the giant postage stamp blocks, I also turned out a big ole stack of smaller blocks. These little guys have just 36 squares per block.  I was thinking of something with a chevron kind of feel.
Here it is from the other side.  Still need more orange blocks, along with a light and dark neutral.  Baby blues would be good too.
There is absolutely nothing we have to do today.  Looking forward to another day of puttering around the house.  Hopefully the kids won't go stir crazy.  They are pretty good at that.

How cute are those little rainbow postage stamp blocks! Might just have to do some as leaders and enders.

Love how you are doing these by color. I am doing sixteen patches with all my small scraps that I cut into 1.5 inch squares. They are fun to sew on days you just want to sit behind the machine and chain stitch.

Awesome quilt in the making!
If the kids get bored, put them to work in the sewing room :)

These are really pretty. I've been collecting postage stamp pieces for a couple of years but now I'm thinking I should reorganize them by colors.

Great lay out! I may have to try a few of those postage stamp blocks (once I finish a few quilts).
