Plain and Simple is Best





After looking at my books, and looking at vintage quilts online, I decided not to add any borders to the postage stamp quilt.  Simplicity is best.  I did add more thirties fabrics from my stash  - I added one more column and one more row and it finishes at 14.5 by 16 inches, with 110 squares.  Each square is 1.5 inches and it is machine pieced and machine quilted.
