Expanding the Postage Stamp Donation Design

You have seen a number of donation blocks and quilts I have made for BAMQG using the postage stamp pattern. I wouldn’t have called it a postage stamp pattern; I would have called it a 16 patch, but postage stamp was what the Charity Girls called it, so we’ll move on and fight about names later.

The most recent quilt (still in process!) is the Black and Grey Teenaged Boy Donation Quilt. You know it; you have seen it 100 times. I make those blocks as meditation and to do something good for others. There is something about making those blocks that feels infinite. Infinite possibilities. I think simple blocks have that quality.

Cheryl’s quilt is a perfect example. She took a number of different blocks, put them together and added an awesome border to make this donation quilt.

One thing is that I could use a lot of different scraps. I could use a similar border idea to finish the Black & Grey Teenaged Boy Donation Quilt. Perhaps I will use this idea when I make the next donation quilt.
