The 13c stamp quilt stamp was issued in 1978 and is one of a set of four.
If you're wondering about the 37c stamp, it is one of four from a 2005 set featuring New Mexico Rio Grande blankets.

I was part of a quilting bee once, many years ago. I didn't make the squares, but helped stitch them together, which was more fun and less finicky, I think.ReplyDelete
I have seen some incredible work on quilts. Nice to see them recognized on stamps.Delete
I've not seen the folk art ones, love the shape.ReplyDelete
They are in the shape of baskets.Delete
Very interesting stamps! I like the textiles-connected stamps and history.ReplyDelete
"Rio Grande" was a famous clothes brand when I was a child. I met my first penpal though its magazine for kids!
Fun to hear that my stamp choice today took you down memory lane.Delete
