    Question Postage stamp quilt from 2 1/2 inch squares? Anyone done one?

    I have a lot of scraps and to use them I am thinking of doing a postage stamp quilt in a scrappy style, using what I have with no worry of colors or pattern. Thanks for any help. I think this is one that could take awhile.

    sounds good to me. I am beginning to cut my scraps into 2.5" squares ( will think about a postage stamp with them)and 2/5 x 7 strips (for a braid). ... all part of my plan to organize!

    I have a whole box of 2.5" squares cut from scraps, separated by lights, darks, and brights. I planned to make a bunch of 4-patches but had not chosen a pattern. The 2012 issue of Quilt Almanac has a pattern called Cherry Jubilee that I might use. Can't find a pic of it online but it's a square in a square setting where the center square is a dark/light 4-patch. Their version is all brights but most of my scraps are Civil War repro's or subdued colors.

    Also, look at Bonnie Hunter's website quiltville.com. She has wonderful patterns. I'm making the Patches and Pinwheels out of scraps also.

    Sounds like a fun project. I am thinking of a table runner to start and see if I am able to do a large quilt. With RA it is sometimes hard to get my stiff fingers to work with small pieces.
