Step Two: Add the little squares, WOW!
Step Three: Add more little squares. This quilt amazes me!
Linda Robertus of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia made it in April 2009.
Thank you Linda for taking these photos showing us how you did it.

Have you seen the new issue of Down Under Quilts from Australia? They're featuring selvages! Erica Spinks' authored the articles, and her beautiful selvage quilt is on the front cover. She used a solid beige fabric with her selvages, and she added hand quilting with black thread to echo the selvages. Terrific idea. This is the first selvage quilt to appear on the cover of a magazine!
Above, do you recognize my Tree of Life selvage quilt and Jodie Carleton's selvage frock? They also show Jodie's selvage chair on another page. Below see the selvage shopping sack by Linda Robertus.

Linda Robertus of Brisbane, Australia has finished her quilt, "Salvaged Selvedges" for an article in the December issue of "Down Under Quilts" and it is truly stunning! She used the "quilt as you go" method, so each block was already quilted before assembling the quilt. Isn't this a beauty? See more photos at: http://www.q-linda.blogspot.com/.
See the online version of Down Under Quilts at: http://www.downunderquilts-digital.com/downunderquilts/issue125/ It's free.
Linda has a few other things on her plate at the moment too. She's a PhD candidate at the University of Queensland. Her topic is the transmission of tuberculosis. Yikes! And she's a Mom, she has a job, and she just discovered the joy of Photoshop! I need a nap!

I really like how she has arranged her colors. You need a mighty big stash to do that! Her friends in the Netherlands are sending her their selvages. What a nice idea to sleep under a pretty quilt made from bits of fabric from your far-away friends.
Quilt historians are going to have such an easy time dating these quilts! But determining where the quilt was made could be pretty tricky in this case!

If this was my calendar, I would be constantly tempted to quilt!
