Call Me Crazy Quilter!

Good Morning!

It is lovely and humid here today in the Valley and I plan to do some more sewing on my Postage Stamp quilt before going to work today. I plan to go through my large bin of half square triangles and cut them down to size, that is 1.5 x 1.5 so that I can start on my pinwheels. Each row will be separated by a 1.5 inch strip of red alternating with pinwheels. I still have a long way to go but it’s fun and easy to do!

Come on, I know there are others besides me who have left over triangles from various projects! I reuse them in different projects as I am seriously a scrappy person.

Here is the first segment, followed by more and then down to the end. There are supposed to be 42 four patch squares but I must have miscounted on a couple as they are short by a couple of blocks. No big problem, just add on. I measured it on my bed and it has plenty of length and overhang to make a good sized quilt. The final picture is my box of leftover half-square triangles.

Have a great day!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
