    Several friends and I made quilts in 2000 from 2 1/2" squares with 2000 different squares in them. We traded fabrics to get the 2000 different fabrics. Since then I think that I have accumulated at least that many more different fabrics so think I could make a second one! I started with the blues in one corner on a diagonal and continued in rainbow order. I put together 9 patches first and then sewed them together. Turned out great. I used the whites and blacks to write 2000 on each side.

    #1piecemaker, it looks like your hubby's seams match perfectly! I'm impressed. This would be a great thing for leaders and enders. I just learned about them the other day. It seems pretty cool to be making 2 quilts at a time!

    I thought you had to use a 1 1/2 inch square to call it postage stamp, oh wait maybe there isn't a quilt police and you can use what you want! Always wanted to use those little faces.
