I have been saving selvedges for a few years ... just so I could make a selvedge quilt.
And now I have.
I used a Cut Loose pattern and a Creative Grids ruler (both available at Spring Water Designs). This was a really easy quilt to make.
And on the back ...
I put the license plates that I collected (and were gifted to me) during the Row-by-Row Experience shop hop. I did not make any of the rows. But I did get license plates.
This weekend was all about quilting and binding and gardening and prepping.
Sadly, it was time to take this ...
and make it looks like this ...
The rose bushes have been winterized. I always worry when we cut them down but they come back healthy every year.
Then there was an OP quilt. Pam does beautiful work.
It's been a FAB-O autumnal weekend!

Not - IN 2 weeks but it's BEEN 2 weeks! Good morning my quilty friends. Sorry it's been so quiet around here. I have been busy busy busy - sewing and knitting and quilting and teaching. I have not been really busy taking pictures - I do think about it ... after.
I did, this morning (at 7:35), check something off my Quilt Bucket List - it needs it's very own blog post... ok, it also needs a binding.
I'm in the homestretch of a new Christmas quilt. It needs borders and of course quilting and such. I really like how it's turning out. Kits are available at Spring Water Designs.
This was the original quilt I made from Dragonfly Quilts.
Fabric choices make a huge difference!!
And - did you see the photo bomb - a couple of blocks were peeking out in the Christmas quilt. That's the Spring Water Designs 2015 BOM. It is so awesome!! It's called Enchanted Garden by Gretchen Gibbons. A partial reveal will be happening at the shop on Monday. Sign ups will start the first week of November. Stay tuned for updates on that beauty.
It's now 8:00 and the coffee is ready ... and so am I.
Have a sunny, autumnal weekend!
