In 2013, I partook in a couple postage stamp swaps organized by Mary Wilbourn, the Curious Quilter. I ended up with hundreds and hundreds of the things. I did nothing with them until last October, when I needed a project for a retreat with our guild. I put 4 columns together that weekend, thinking it would be a pretty throw.

But I had soooo many squares left, and I could see it as a beautiful queen or king quilt. More traditional than I usually do, but I could see how cool it would look. So it grew to about 80 x 90.

So it’s all done, and I still have a couple hundred squares. This one took 1320 different 2″ squares.
I must be having a thing for squares because the next one I came up with also uses 2 inch squares. It’s a version of Trip Around the World quilt. The pattern is in the book Tradition With A Twist.

This is about 80 x 90 as well. It was fun to see it come together. When I pull 25 fabrics, I can only hope for the best. I used a design board to quilt it as it was so busy, nothing detailed would ever show. It can be seen on the back …

And lastly, although this was the first finish this year. A quilt for the first grand baby due in May!

It has black minky on the back. I wrote up the pattern for this. If you like cutting lots of black and white pieces and putting them back together again, I’ve got a pattern for you!
