Postage Stamp This quilt measures 50"x50" and began in the summer of 2008 when I began cutting each of the 2500 pieces by hand and was completed in June 2010. Each 'postage stamp' is 1" square and is hand-pieced using the English paper piecing method. The quilt was then long-arm quilted freestyle with lots of circles by Karen Florey of the Running Chicken.
