Her Majesty's Stamp Collection

Here's a few pictures from my latest quilting project...

The stamp images come from several Commonwealth countries, particularly the UK and Canada. I chose the texture colours based on the common colours of Queen's head stamps.

Damn, that's cool. Where did the idea come from?

Thanks! I had some British stamps lying around, but I'm not sure how the idea of putting them in a quilt struck me. I'm filling the bathroom with Queen stuff just to see if people think I'm nuts.

That stamp quilt is such a wonderful idea!

This is amazing. Also, re: bathroom, I already think you're nuts (and so do the alpaca and ostrich I have on the walls of my bathroom).

Whatever Melissa. I wouldn't trust the alpaca and the ostrich not to tear up the place while you're off gallivanting with Caroline. Any creature with a lengthy neck demands suspicion.
