Postage Stamp Quilt

I thought I would show the postage stamp quilt that I finished a week or two ago. I followed the instructions for this quilt from the quilt along at P.S. I Quilt. The fabric I used is a set of six prints from the Picnic Parade line by Jenean Morrison. The backing fabric is Topsy Turvey Dots by Legacy Studios.

This quilt took about a month for me, the longest I've spent on a quilt so far. For the first time I tried to use a quilting method other than in the ditch. I did quilt as you go, block by block, then added another layer of of whole batting before attaching the back. Since I added the second layer of batting, I also used hand tying, each center square per block to hold that batting down.

I really like the dotted backing fabric and how the dots happened to match the colors in the Picnic Parade fabric.
