Heirloom Postage Stamp quilt

We inherited this from my husband's grandmother when she passed away. I'm trying to convince my husband it would be so much better out and in use than tucked away in a cedar chest.

 

This is a twin size quilt. The tiny squares are all, well, postage stamp size. Each block contains 30 squares. Hand quilting. It takes my breath away.

 

I've been saving scraps in the hopes of someday finding time to do a modern take on this.
