2010 Selvage Sampler Quilt by Riel Nason

This fabulous "2010 Selvage Sampler" quilt is the creation of Riel Nason, a writer, antique dealer, and selvage quilter extraordinaire from New Brunswick, Canada. This quilt is her own design. She free-pieced it without a pattern. Riel says it took her about 2 months to make it and she had fun making it. You can read more and see additional photos on her blog: The Q and the U.

This quilt was machine quilted by Tina Hanson of Town and Country Quilts. She quilted with a swirly design that looks great.

I love all the different ways Riel pieced the blocks! The butterfly in the bottom photo is one of my favorites.

Beautiful quilt. I also love the butterfly block. I may have to try to make it with strips to go in my "Butterfly" quilt. Nevermind that I haven't started it, I've been thinking about it for several years. That block may just move me to start it. Thanks for sharing both the quilt and that block. ~Nita
