Quilt of 5496 Pieces!

A friend who loves TINY things recently finished this postage stamp quilt of 5496 one-inch squares!!!  She will donate it to be raffled as a fundraiser at the retirement home where she works.

Postage stamp quilt–all 1″ squares!  Made by Jerri Szlizewski

Jerri says this is “the ultimate I-Spy quilt”.  She has found many, many, little novelty prints to put in the little blocks.  She even has Elvis, though I didn’t get him in this close-up.

Here are just a few of the projects from the design walls at a recent quilt retreat at a “secret” hideaway:

One retreater came up with this design to use slabs we had swapped previously

One person made several dozen of the cute half-circle napkins that fold into a Christmas tree.  She made a lot of place mats, too, but I didn’t get a picture of those.

  1. Great work all around! Ronald McDonald House will be a lucky recipient. The scrappy star blocks remind me of Katherine Guerrier. I’ll have to get out my Scrap Quilt Sensations book and get inspired again. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Can’t imagine the work going into the postage stamp……it makes me a little dizzy though! The purple and lavender quilt and the Christmas tree napkins (quite clever) are especially appealing but all in all a lot of nice work there!
