Selvedge quilt

As I mentioned the other day, I have started a selvedge quilt. It is to be a quilt for our bed (finally!) and as I am not looking forward to quilting a queen sized quilt on my small machine, I decided to make it a quilt-as-you-go quilt. I am using the technique described here by Jan, who is doing a wonderful job making and collecting quilts for the bush fire victims in Victoria.

As you can see I have made 10 blocks so far, but I think I will probably need 6x8 blocks, so it will be a while before I am finished! My Dutch quilting friends have been very good in sending me their selvedge strips - thanks ladies! If you're reading this and you have some selvedges for me, please send me an email (click on View my complete profile, on the left) - I'll be happy to send you a fiber postcard or FQ in return.

Last week I received 2 ATCs, from Kathryn (ATWI20Q) and Margeeth:

They are both very beautiful; thank you!
