Oh yes



It is done.



At last!



This is me, yesterday night, just after finishing the quilt.



And here it is on our bed. I have just heard that the article on selvedge items will be in the December issue of Down Under Quilts, so it does not need to be in Sydney until September 18th (my 40th birthday!). I'm glad we can have it on our bed in the cold August month after all.



It will be the last queen sized quilt I will be making for a long time! But it does feel good to have finished it. And just in time to show it tomorrow at the meeting of the Brisbane ScQuilters.



PS It does not have a name yet - I can't seem to think of one. Suggestions welcome; I'll make a selvedge item for you if you come up with THE name for this quilt!

dit is nu echt wel de essentie van quilten: van echte restjes een heel mooie quilt maken!

Ingrid said...

Marls said...

Mooooooi, Linda! Ik zeg het nu maar vast, want ik vergeet het beslist maandag, alhoewel ik het dus ook mooi in het echie kan zien op je bed ;-)

That quilt has turned out really nice.
I hope you will find a name for it. I have thought up one, but it is in dutch "de zelfkant van het quilten", in analogie naar "de zelfkant van de samenleving'.

Just an idea for a name : Saved Selvedges"

It looks fabulous on the bed Linda. The first thing I thought of when I saw it finished was 'lollipops' because the colours remind me of all those small lollipops in clear wrap that you see on the front counter at the shop. I am also working on a selvedge quilt but no way is it going to be finished by Sept!!

Looks wonderful Linda. I reckon I would call it "Odds and Ends".

Absolutely Fabulous Linda! You have every right to feel proud!

Yvonne said...

Absolutely beautiful Quilt.There is a saying "Waste not want not" So I suggest the name of the Quilt be something like "Nothing Wasted"
Cheers Yvonne

jacq said...

heel erg mooi zeg! dat je met zulke reepjes zo'n mooie quilt kan maken, ene zelfs je achterkant is mooi, die zou best als voorkant kunnen!

Helen said...

WOW! No suggestions for a name here, it's just fantastic!!!!!! Lovely!

Lynette said...

How about 'Edges Rule'

Ha Linda,
Lekker geslapen onder je quiltje? Wat kan een hobby toch uit de hand lopen, vind je ook niet?
Maar heel mooi geworden en heeeeeel goed dat je 48 blokken hebt gemaakt.
Maar kan je de quilt niet beter andersom op je bed leggen in de breedte zeg maar??
Erg grappig om alle suggesties voor een naam te lezen. Ik dacht aan iets van Selvedge Collectors (verzamelaars ik weet niet of ik het goed heb geschreven)
En nou starten met mooie kleine projectjes. Het quilten zal wel minder worden straks met je PHD. Veel plezier! Doei Petra
