A big thank you to my postage stamp charm swappers! With 500 new charms, I’m ready to design the next quilt. I’m searching and pinning ideas for the next PSQ. Do you have a suggestion for me?
My first PSQ is almost ready for quilting. Each charm will be quilted with continuous curve or an X. I’m excited to fit it into my quilting schedule. Would it be weird to use up all my partial bobbins of thread in random order? We’ll see what happens!
Our granddaughter, Haley, is staying with us and yesterday we cut her stash into 5 inch squares! At first, she wanted to arrange her squares to spell 1 D, for the band One Direction. (If you have a 10 year old girl in your family, you’ll know who they are!!) I steered her away from that and this is the design she made. Next time we’ll tackle sewing the squares together. Wish me luck!!!
My other design wall is sorting charms for the next Postage Stamp Quilt swap!
This is how I sort 100 different charms for swapping. I throw in a couple extra for safe measure. Are you signed up for the swap? Mary at Curious Quilter has extended the sign up period through today! These 2″ charms could be yours! Here’s the sign up link.

Thanks for looking! Linda
I’ve been sneaking time away from LAQ to randomly sew PSQ blocks together. The 8 rows are assembled and ready for the last step. I’m so excited to get this finished and on the longarm for quilting. I love, love the look of 3584 charms with no border.
I still have lots of charms and if Mary at The Curious Quilter does another swap, I’ll be signing up for that!
Are you on Pinterest? I’m pinning PSQ ideas on my Quilts to Make board.
Have you made a Postage Stamp Quilt (PSQ)? Leave a comment sharing your favorite PSQ, I need more ideas!

I’ve been sewing PSQ blocks! I knew I was getting pretty close to my required 56, and I was very excited to see that I have 50 blocks done! I love it!!!!
Later this month, I’ll get new swap partners for more charms, yay! That will help me get a few more lights for my quilt. Thanks to Mary, at Curious Quilter for organizing another swap. There is still time to sign up for the last swap of 2012, here’s the link!

Nine Great Granny Square blocks! Eleven to go and it will be a lap size!
Forty Postage Stamps blocks! I’m getting closer, only 16 blocks left!
Forty-nine Yo-Yos! We have a long way to go with this one. Nine of them are sewn together to start the coverlet.
