I finished the top of my 2" Postage Stamp kingsize quilt this evening.  I'm going to use the solid purple for the binding too.  Now I need to decide on the backing.  I had to lay it on our bed to take the picture.   Lots of little 2" squares!   So now I have 5 quilt tops ready to quilt (FMQ).

Patricia, that sure is a beautiful quilt ~~ can't help but be great when it has both scraps and purple, IMHO!  Is it a leader/ender project?  Either way, good job!

Thank you Carol.  I had to look up what a leader/ender project is & I guess it could be considered one.  The individual squares are 5 blocks X 5 rows.  I did sew some of the squares in chains to help me keep up with how many I had.  I have been working on this since February.

I always wanted to do a Postage Stamp Quilt, but was unsure how to start until I read more about them on an online blog.  Then I participated in 3 postage stamp block swaps & so was able to get a large variety in my blocks.  Have really enjoyed it & love the results.  I think I'm keeping this one.

Karla:

LaJuan Sukochi Lee:
Karla, I went through infertility. It was terrible. My sister and sister-in-law were both pregnant and here I sat no baby. Come to find out that I had very severe endometriosis and that was the problem. FInally adopted. But, althought I love my child, I still cried for a baby from my own body. It is tough to go through. I felt like a failure as a woman

Sukochi, I had 2 first trimester and one 2nd trimester miscarriages in the 10 years before DD1 was born.  She was premature (9 weeks) and weighed in at 3 lbs.  DD2 was also premature by 3 weeks, but hit the scales at a whopping 6 lbs.  I know how she feels and I know how you felt when everyone around you was having babies.  It is devastating.  She has a 13-year old son by her first marriage, but she and her current DH so want one together.  

my sister would be in your group.  She had two ectopic pregnancy and almost died.  They told her she wouldn't be able to have kids.  It took about another six years before they finally got to adopt their son.  I felt guilty of being able to have babies at will when she so desperately wanted some and couldn't.  It took almost four months before I announced I was pregnant with DS2.  They were fortunate to have been chosen by the mom. C was seven days old when he came in their lives.  He is a wonderful young man.

I'm another one.  Not infertile, but pregnancy would be too hard on my body for other medical reasons.  I'm 31 and DH is 36 and we've considered fostering, adopting, hosting foreign exchange students, having a surrogate, etc. etc.  We're currently leaning towards focusing on all the positives of just being childless - which basically just amount to more time, money, freedom for ourselves.  My friends and siblings are all currently having babies lately, so it's .... different.  We try to stay positive and look at the bright side.  :)

Patricia - beautiful quilt - I love how you pulled all those little squares together with the sashing purple - so cute.  I know how long this took you and how you went crosseyed at times making sure you didn't put the same two pieces next to each other... I did this with my 3' scraps a couple years ago when my church asked me for a donation quilt - I sewed and sewed and was pulling pieces out of a bag - sewed them in rows and then couldn't believe it when 2 of them would be the same - argh!!! I would say... You did a beautiful job and your kids and grand kids will make this one of their favorite quilts.
