Tree of Life Selvage Quilt

This Tree of Life selvage quilt was made by Cynthia Fuelling. It is one of the quilts in my 2008 AQS book: Quilts from the Selvage Edge. I like Cynthia's version with the nice border! My quilt is shown below.

Angela's Asterisk Quilt

A modern, light and airy version of the Asterisk quilt! This was made by Angela Pingel and featured on her blog: Cut to Pieces. I love that black block. Cover it with your thumb and the lights seem to go out in this quilt. Uncover it and it's snappy again!

Color from Sweden!

Today is the last day of February and we are needing some color! Saini Salonen designed this fabric for Boras Boras of Sweden. It's from the 1960-1970's. 

Here's another view (above) from Scandinavianseance on Etsy.

I found this "Yellowtail" fabric in 4 colors online at Rakuten Global Market. It's made in Japan.

Snow Lumps!

Make big snow lumps. 
Insert glow sticks for eyes. 
Freak the neighbors out.

Too funny! We have so much snow, we might as well make the most of it.
I wonder where this photo was taken.

Shopping Cart Giveaway!

I found this little shopping cart at Hobby Lobby and customized it with tiny bolts of fabric from my stash. The cart has a baby seat and the wheels work better than the carts at my grocery store. This cart is about 4" high and 5" long.
Your comment is your giveaway entry. A random winner will be announced on Thursday March 5. I will ship anywhere in the world.
Tell us what kind of fabric you are on the lookout for now. 
I'm on the lookout for low volume modern prints and anything really gorgeous or truly unique.

Selvage Monkey Wrench Block

Riel Nason from New Brunswick Canada, (The Q and the U) made this pretty Monkey Wrench block. That black background fabric really makes the selvages pop!
She has made many wonderful selvage quilts. Many have been featured here.
Riel is also the author of The Town That Drowned, a book that I enjoyed reading and recommend to you.
