I’m excited to say I have already completed my February Postage Stamp Challenge! I solemnly vowed to sew all of quadrant 1 into sets of 4.
Sewing is done.
It was pretty awesome to iron these out. I started getting a feel for how things are going to look!
There were some sad ones. Several are like the one below, where the seams just don’t quite match. I didn’t have any tragically off-kilter ones, but I’m a little concerned about how it might throw things off. Of course, I’m worrying too much about it..
But overall, I was really pleased with how they look. I definitely have some favorites! The one below just makes me really happy for some reason.
A few produced some color combos I’d never really considered. In the future, I may look to these for inspiration:
I definitely have a weakness for aqua, red, and black together. All my favorite blocks turned out to contain green/aqua, red/orange, and black and white!
Now I’m going through and squaring up all my blocks. Does using a rotary cutter make everyone’s elbows burn, or am I doing something wrong??
Bring on March’s challenge, Mary!! I’m ready!
