Postage stamp quilts are one of our favorite beginner friendly quilt projects that use a wide variety of scraps. We’ve highlighted postage stamp quilts before, and now we are back with more.
Small squares grouped together give a postage stamp quilt a modern flair. Using novelty prints and unique patterns, the quilt can become a game of I-spy.
There is no right or wrong way to assemble a postage stamp quilt. The Curious Quilter makes her quilts extra scrappy and illustrated a “squares, rectangles, squares” approach.
Karen assembled at least 4,000 squares measuring 1.5″ to create her version of a postage stamp quilt. The added applique border hangs beautifully over the edge of a bed.
Just Quilty shows how incorporating solids in a checkerboard pattern makes each square pop. Straightforward cutting, and simple, straight seams make postage stamp quilts ideal for beginners.
If you are looking to use up 2.5″ squares, making your first quilt, or just ready for a fun project, check out the Modern Postage Stamp Quilt Pattern by Kitchen Table Quilting.
We hope you feel inspired to dive into your scrap stash and cut some cute squares!
