Second Selvage Quilt

I've just been informed by Blogger that I haven't posted since February 4.  Yowza.  I've been busy - there will be lots of quilts to show off in the next week or two - but still....  Lame.  Very lame.  Maybe I can return to your good graces with some selvage eye candy??


You might remember my first selvage quilt and my many other selvage projects.  With 2012 came the desire to make a second selvage quilt.  I started this the third week of January.  Maybe the second week.  Thanks to all of my lovely friends who trade selvages to me and helped make this quilt come together in such a short amount of time.


I decided to send this quilt out to be quilted - after seeing the beautiful quilting on Ashley's quilt, I knew I wanted Lindsay to quilt this one.  She did such an awesome job and was so easy to work with - I can't wait to work with her again one day. 


The back is single piece of some Amy Butler Love flannel.  I simply adore a flannel backing - so cozy. Binding is some Riley Blake micro dots yellow.  Finished size is 53" x 73" - a lovely size for me and a kiddo to cuddle under on the couch, which is exactly my plan for the cold and rainy weekend we're expecting.

Beautiful! By the way, I've got a good chunk of selvages to send your way. I'm making napkins for the wedding, so I'm building up quite a collection! I'm not sure when I'll get them to you, but probably in the next month or so. You are a selvage genius!
