At the last meeting of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild we swapped postage stamp squares (2.5 inches). I swapped 500 of them - others in the group swapped closer to a 1000 (I can't imagine cutting out that many little squares!). After playing around with several layouts I decided on a scrappy Irish Chain:
Dominic was actually a very good helper - he held up my sketch for me and even told me when he thought I was putting them out wrong! I think I'll stick with the standard white for the spaces in-between the colored squares. It won't be all that big - just a lap quilt or maybe a twin size. I really like the look of scrappy quilts but I have to admit I'm a little intimidated by sewing with such small squares (which I have to say is really funny considering that I made a quilt out of 1 inch hand pieced hexagons!). Now, I just have to find time to start sewing on it!
