I'm hoping to combine my interest in stamp collage, with making my own stamp quilt, but in a much smaller size, suitable for framing, having been inspired by this great collection. I have a large amount of US stamps which will be just perfect - just hope I've got as much patience as the American quilters obviously had!
The stamps shown below depict one of the quilt motifs seen at the Museum. I also came across other memorabilia in the museum which has been the subject of US stamp issues and will feature these on a different post.

I'm always interested to see fine hand-crafted items and these quilts are very special!
