    From my 1.5" postage stamp swaps . . .

    . . . I made this lap quilt for me. Using only 3402 little squares it hardly put a dent in my stamp collection!

    Pretty. Did you sew the squares together individually or did you use the interfacing speed layout&sew method (http://www.sewmamasew.com/2009/10/el...iny-squares/)? That is A LOT of squares!

    Wow, what an amazing quilt! I just finished up a leaders and enders quilt with 2 inch squares so I can relate to your high level of patience, you have at least 25% more than I do!

    It's beautiful! I also like working with 1.5" squares, though I haven't done too much with them yet...your idea is fantastic! Now those tiny HST...I have my doubts about doing those...
