Postage Stamp Quilt Along Week 2

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!



Week 2 of the Postage Stamp Quilt Along had me assembling strip sets.  This took a long time, because I pinned every strip before sewing rather than laying them together and hoping they would stay together correctly as they were sewed.  When pressing each seam, I lined up the outside strip with the edge of the ironing board to be sure they stayed straight when pressed.  I am very pleased with how they turned out! 

Here's how they look now.  I'm on to cutting and assembling next!

I bet all that pinning is going to make a big difference. It's already turning out so well.
