Star you ready?

The Star Quilts stamps were released July 6.

The Postal Service has released Star Quilts stamps that are intended for use by business mailers.

The two stamps offer interpretations of the Lone Star pattern, which features one large eight-point star covering the top of the entire quilt.

The quilts featured on the stamp were made by Amish quilt makers and have alternating colors of red, white, blue, green or purple designs.

Post Offices should draw down existing inventory of the Spectrum Eagle stamps before ordering the Star Quilts stamps.
