This is one amazing quilt created by Mrs. B. W. Riley in 1939. Mrs. Riley kept detailed records of the making of this Miniaturized Postage Stamp quilt. Here are some of the statistics. Each square measures less than one-half inch, a nine-patch measures one full inch. The total weight of the quilt is 7 1/2 lbs. She used 69,649 pieces and 3,694 yards of thread. It took Mrs. Riley 194 days to make it, not counting the 524 hours to cut it out. It contains approximately 1,810,874 stitches. The truly amazing thing is that this is just one of the 200 quilts she made in her lifetime.
