New Project ('cause I needed one!)

About a year or so ago, I discovered PS I Quilt, just about the time that Rachel started a Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along. It didn't take long before I was wishing I had found the site just a week or two earlier, or that I had jumped into the quilt along before I really knew what it was about. And I promised myself that the next time Rachel announced a quilt along, I was getting involved.

Guess what? Rachel's announced a postage stamp quilt along and I'm gonna play! I ordered the quilt top fabrics yesterday, and they'll be here on Monday. So hard to choose! I have yet to do a lot of fabric acquisition online (which could be a good or a bad thing, not sure yet), and there were so many more options online. Do I use the quilt along as an excuse to try out a fabric design that I don't usually work with or go with something safe and comfortable? I opted for comfortable, figuring that the virtual group quilting experience was stretchy enough. Hopefully I'll remember to grab a picture of the box when it arrives next week.
