Postage Stamp Progress

I've cut up my strip sets that consist of It's a Hoot by Momo for Moda and Bella Solids in Snow into what seem like a gazillion 2 1/2 inch by 10 1/2 inch strips and are slowly by surely sewing them into 10 1/2 inch square blocks:

I have 25 of the 48 blocks completed, and I just had to clear off my design wall to put these up to see the progress, this is a completely random arrangement, and I'm only about half way done constructing my blocks!

The completed quilt is supposed to measure 60 x 80, but I'm not sure that the quilt along is allowing for a pieced back, and I know I want to save at least one row of "postage stamps" to piece into the backing, so the finished size is TBD.  This is quickly outgrowing my design wall, so stay tuned for more progress!


  1. That looks so great with those fabrics. You have put this together really quickly.

  2. wow. . I feel super behind now. This is looking great!

  3. Its looking good so far. Love the colours in yours. I am still cutting up my strips!

  4. so pretty! I'm sick of cutting... have many only a few more strips left. Hoping over the weekend to get the blocks done. Yours is awesome! Its a Hoot is a beautiful line!
