This isn't the quilt I wanted to share but unfortunately the festival ends tomorrow and I haven't had a chance to take a photo of my newly finished mendocino mermaid quilt... It's been rather wet and we leave and arrive in the dark daily it seems at the moment. Winter is nearly here!
So instead I am sharing this quilt - The Philatelic Society
I made this quilt for my wee Gus using 2 jelly rolls of Look and Learn by American Jane and the Postage Stamp Quilt Along instructions. I had always wanted to make a postage stamp quilt. As a child I collected stamps just like my Poppa. I've very fond memories of sitting in his sunroom looking over albums and albums of colourful stamps from a variety of countries.
This quilt tested my patience though. So many squares = so many seams! Needless to say this quilt isn't perfect... but it's getting a lot of love and is keeping my wee man warm at night.
Here it is with all his teds on his bed. The quilting is an all over baby animal print which is very sweet. I love the crinkly goodness of this quilt.
Thanks for coming over to have a look at my quilt! And thanks Amy for hosting the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Be sure to check out all the lovely quilts in the Festival!
