A couple of months ago I bought a box of old quilt magazines at a thrift shop. This photo -- in the Spring, 1987, issue of Quilt caught my eye. Their pattern called for 2.5" squares resulting in an 18" block. I thought it would be great with 1.5" postage stamps and thus a 9" block.
I had enough of the pink fabric (a Jinny Beyer 'blender' from years ago) to make 26 blocks, of which 25 are shown. The 26th will most likely be pieced into the back.
Here is the block
deconstructed preconstructed. I cut a template for the trapezoid. The triangles are cut from 2" squares. The postage stamps are 1.5" squares.
