My Stamp Collection block uses a piece of lightweight fusible interfacing to quickly piece 100 tiny squares into a 15” x 15” block. This method helps to keep seams straight and makes a block with reinforced seam allowances that “stay put” making them especially easy to handle and sew into a larger quilt.
Note: The Making the Block post includes a quick summary of what you need to make the block. This is a more in-depth explanation of each item. An introduction to the Stamp Collection block can be found here.
Each block is made with 100 squares a scant 2” x 2” each. I used 50 squares each in 2 color groups (yellow/green and gray). Within each color group, I used 2 squares each of 25 different fabrics. This means that there are 2 of each print in each block, which could make a fun matching game/I Spy quilt for a child.

For each 15” x 15” (finshed) block, you will need:
