Central Park Postage Stamp Quilt Finished!

It's finally done! My postage stamp quilt from PS I Quilt's quilt along (that's really a mouthful!). This was such a great quilt along. I highly recommend it for anyone! Especially if you have a jelly roll that you don't know what to do with. I mean really - look at this....
And some more.
I've been calling this my liberation quilt. I was a pinner before I did this quilt along. When Rachel mentioned that she doesn't ever pin I finally let go and just matched the seams as I went along. And it turned out beautifully. Now I don't really do much pinning.
I finished all the quilting at the PMQG sewing day last Saturday.  I just did straight diagonal lines through the white blocks.
I decided on a solid back (except for my label of course).
I'm so happy with how it turned out. Thank you Rachel for a great quilt along!! This one is all mine. It's living on my couch now.

I love it. I really like the floral back. I keep looking at that fabric at my LQS and trying to find a project for it. Great job!

One of my favorite quilts is a blue and white postage stamp quilt. It is such a nice design.

Hi Becky!

A little (jay)birdie shared your quilt with me, and i just wanted to pop over to let you know how much i absolutely love it!! You did such a wonderful job. What's really fun for me to see is how you organized the color range in much the same way i did when i designed the collection! When the strike-offs come in from the mill, i'll lay them all out and see how the colors can move from one to the next...and your quilt captures that motion so beautifully! Love love the quilting on it too. Great work!

big hug to you,
kate
