Postage Stamp Quilt Update

If you've been following along then you know that my postage stamp quilt has been coming together very sloooowwly.  My last post in September had me contemplating making it bigger, from a twin sized to a queen.  Well, I went ahead an DID make it bigger!  It took some time and some re-figuring, and then more time and more figuring to get it to the size I wanted.

But now, I'm happy to say that the top is FINISHED (as in really finished) and off to the quilter!

It is SO BIG that I had to move all the furniture in my front room while I pieced the backing and got it ready for the quilter.  When it comes back I'll give you the finished size and tell you how many 2.5" squares I ended up using.  Hint: It was A LOT!!!

But I am so very happy with how it turned out, even if it took me such a long time to complete.
 I will enjoy seeing it every day on my bed!
