Wandering Wednesday: Another PSQ Charmer

Once my mind is set to postage stamp quilts, I see them all over. I see mosaics on walls, and think quilts. I see pixels on photos, and think quilts. It seems that they have taken over my life this year, doing all these swaps and sharing my addiction with others. No, postage stamp quilts are not new, people have been making them for decades. How different quilters manage the colors, be it planned or scrappy or somewhere in between, keeps it very interesting. Like this one:

Deborah Cohen’s original Trinity Celtic Knot quilt – a postage stamp delight!

Truly a Postage Stamp Quilt.

Deborah Cohen of A Pilgrim’s Quilts is another super quilter from Australia. In 2010 she had a gorgeous quilt called Trinity Celtic Knots published in Australian Patchwork and Quilting (Vol. 19, No 3). At first glance, you might not realize that this intricately planned delight is a PSQ. But a closer look shows you that it is nothing but little two-inch charm squares, carefully stitched into a series of Celtic knots. Browse her blog for photos of this quilt that others have sent her, in different colorways. Since there are no more back issues of the original magazine offering, you can purchase the pattern at Arbee Designs Ltd. This is one inspiring PSQ!! Be sure to let Deborah know that you visited and leave her a comment.

I hope that you are all sewing your little charms together and making progress on your own Postage Stamp Quilt, be it scrappy or planned!Needle and thread line copyright The Curious Quilter at WordPress dot com Signature© 2012 by The Curious Quilter, thecuriousquilter.net, maryeoriginals.com.
