July’s goal complete

My goal for July was to quilt and bind this queen sized postage stamp quilt, and happily I did it, also enabling me to take part in ElmStreet Quilts One Monthly Goal

In January 2015 that I started sewing together 2 ½ inch squares as leader/enders, hoping one day to have a full sized postage stamp quilt. The top came together and July was the time for finishing. I always like to have a leader/ender project and I might have to think of what my next one will be.  Any ideas? 

There is a piece of nearly every fabric in my stash in this quilt of 1936 squares, 968 coloured fabrics and 968 whites. 

Quilted with continuous curves and an off white Glide thread called linen.
