Selvages in the House

It's finally done and hanging in the studio.

It's so inspiring to have it right in front of me when I'm at my desk. This is where I sit and sketch.

I'm working hard to get things done. I thought I had a free week, but now the calendar is packed again. How does that happen?

I love the quilting! Did you do it yourself?

carol said...

It's beautiful.....LOVE the quilting too!

Angela said...

yep..it's decided. This is definitely a quilt design I will be "stealing" to make with my own selvages. I haven't know why I was saving them, but this is PERFECT. Love it!

nettie said...

Jackie said...

Love where it hangs! Much better than a calendar anyway!

Suzanne said...

It's like a fabric scrapbook right before your eyes!

My first thought was, "I love the way you quilted it!" It's beautiful!

sarah, rsm said...

LOVE this! you are a quilting rock star!

Dora said...

This is very cool, I like the "simple" quilting on it.
Can you give some tutorial on hanging your quilt. Yours lies so neat, no bump where the rod is. And what method do you use for fixing your rod to the wall?

Linda said...

You have block out time in your planner to do the things you really want to do. We all need free time in our lives, it's our therapy. Be strong enough to say "no . . . I'm already scheduled for that time". You don't have to tell them that it's your quilting time :)
